King Country Chronicle, 13 December 1916
... After twenty-three days in the trenches I will attempt to answer your last very welcome letter, which came to hand in due time. No doubt you expect a little news from me as regards how I got on. Well, on Sunday night of September 10th, 1916, we went into the front line and relieved a regiment of Tommies who had just captured one of the Hun trenches. We got a bit of a doing going up, losing a few men, as the enemy were shelling the sap, getting the range to a nicety. It was a fairly moonlight night, and when we got there we found that we had to finish a trench that the Tommies had started just a little in advance of the old Bosche line, which was blown to pieces by our artillery prior to the advance. Our bouys worked like Trojans all night, and by daylight had established a fairly good line.
... Daylight revealed a sight that is seen only after a big advance. The old trench behind us was full of dead Germans, and, needless to say, a lot of the Tommies mixed up together. That day our trench was shelled for five hours, but our casualties were remarkably small considering the stuff Fritz put over. By Jove, our chaps are the gamest one would wish to meet. As soon as there was a bit of a lull in the firing, they got over the parapet and out into No Man's Land souvenir hunting, and then the Huns would get into us again, and all hands would scamper back to cover.
... That night a terrible bombardment took place on the part of both sides. High explosives, H.E. shrapnel, machine gun and rifle fire went at top for about half-an-hour. We though Fritz was going to counter-attack but he could never have lived through the barrages our artillery put up. The place was as bright as day, star shells from our trench as well as the Germans made a very picturesque scene. The Germans have some splendid 'Very' lights and plenty of variety, green, white and red being his principle ones.
... Things quietened down at about 1 a.m. and we went out to dig a communication trench between ours and another company, to connect up. I thought during the bombardment I heard a machine gun out a bit from our trench, but one of the men said it was one of ours, but I still had a bit of suspicion that it was a Fritz. However, I took a trip out where I thought it was, and soon dropped across it. One dead Hun was alongside of it, and next day we got a couple of wounded close by. I brought the gun in and when daylight came some of our gunners had a look at it and found it to be in perfect order.
... We were relieved that night by the 2nd Brigade of New Zealand, after a strenuous 8 hours in the front line. We went in again on the night of the 14th, and next day the New Zealanders made their great advance. Only two brigades went forward, the one I just mentioned to the first line and outs took the last three. Out battalion had the farthest to go, having the last line to take. We got over the parapet at 6.30 a.m. and we advanced till 10.50 a.m. It was a great sight to see the steadiness of the men under a terrific fire put up by the enemy, and although their mates fell at every step they never faltered, but went on with the utmost confidence.
... At last we reached the trench we were to reorganise before attacking the final objective. Our company was comparatively weakened by this time, but the remainder went forward and got into the trench only to be driven out again after holding it for about half-an-hour. The Tommies on our right flank failed to get up, and wer were left well advanced with no connection in either flank. There were only two companies of our battalion, - A and B - or rather half company left in that line, and we came under concentrated fire from the enemy as well as a few of our own shell dropping short. We had by this time lost all our officers, which left me in charge, being the senior N.C.O. - Sergt. Major, by the way, being promoted a couple of weeks before we went over. We had to retire back a few hundred yards and dig in under very heavy fire. We expected a counter-attack that night, but it did not eventuate.
We did another 48 hours in the front line and were relieved by the First Brigade, who came up fresh and captured the trench we were driven out of. We were very fortunate in getting back without a casualty, as it is during the change over that we get a lot of shelling.
... Things continued to go on as hot as ever and I can assure you I had quite enough of it when we finished our 23 days. We are at present in the trenches again, but this is a real home compared to our last place, and would be quite satisfied to remain in for the duration. I have a decent little dug-out. and every convenience, and as comfortable as it is possible to be under the circumstances.
... I am expecting to go on furlough very shortly. The leave to England is ten days, so I could have a fairly good time. A lot of our wounded chaps are in hospital in England. Mick Kaveney is over there with a wound in his left arm. I had a note from him the other day. I am in for a commission and expect to get it very shortly.
... The days are getting very short now, and the nights are fairly chilly. The reinforcements are going to England before coming over here, so will probably see Joe by the time my leave comes. I think this winter will see pretty near the end of this war, as the Germans are getting fairly hot time of it. I suppose you read all about the 'tanks' during the advance. They are great. I'll tell you something about them and their working next letter. Poor old Fritz was frightened to death at the sight of them.
... I went right through the stand, and am feeling splendid. Wet feet and ploughing through mud knee deep in places has had no effect on me at all. I could have eaten a horse after getting back to the cookers, so you can guess I haven't lost my appetite
