Listen to this

It’s an excerpt from an e-book that details the more obscure battles of the First World War.

In this one, they’re talking about the Second Battle of Ypres.

It confirms my memories:

1. of the relative condition of the town (I described it as looking something like Port Au Prince when we arrived).

2. Of having been actually within the walls of the town during the battle (something I had begun to doubt).

3. Of a few of the men trying to make jokes, but for the most part we were in no mood for it.

Also, interesting, the fellow they interview is from Somerset!
