Love the bomb one. :D

I suppose you had to have seen the funny side of things or you would have gone of your head, I'm researching the final days of my great uncle Tom served in the 11th (Srvc.) Battallion Rifle Brigade up to the night he was reported missing (age 19). I have obtained copies of the Brigades records from it's formation in 1914 and up to 1919, hand written and typed reports, all very interesting stuff Peter.

Here are some examples.


Order to attack the German trenches.



Report from the CO on the failed attack. Interesting to see the OC signs off saying he is intensely tired.





Casualty Reort - Missing in Action after the above attack - my great uncle, Rifleman S2135 Johnson T.
