The following     interesting
tfroni  the front  iu  which  many       .e-
TvelHtoke hoys are mentioned hns been
xeceived by     Allan Thompson     from
Geoffrey still.
My Dear Allan,—WaB very pleased
to receive your lone lotter dated May
22. 1 received ii in the trenches and
tho day after when coming out, being relieved by the Kith and ICth
■battalions I met Walter Pavey, so
knowing that he would be Interested
in Revelstoke news I handed it on to
tint. Hart Munro is also here, aud
•James Davenport. Vou will know
about pour little Johnny Boyle, i'e
died like a man. Lawson, Bert buck
and i'..li. Hamilton wire all wounde 1
though not seriously, in the ..
tion we were In. A.l). Legg had a
l.asty shock, a shell hurst ejuite close
to him,   bur after a day  or so  rest  i.e
returned   to   his   company     looking
pretty bad but now be is back lo bis
usual high spirits. Bob Reed, as 1
told you in my last I
wounded up at Ypies in the leg j'.St
above his ankle and he writ'- f.om
a hospital Ln England, Baying he has
bad a bad time, blood poisoning having set In and once the doctor told
him that  it would  be necessary     to
cut his leg ofl. Rob refused t i allow this operation; now his le^
though recovering raj Idly Mas had a
considerable amount cut off from the
hack of leg. I am afraid he will never return to the fr nt again, Jack
Kdmir has returned from hospital, he
was wounded at the same true as
Boh. Dav Gray had a most wonderful escape |ust B day or so ago, we
were jusi behind the Bring line when
the Oen ms put over a few six-iuch
shell*, one of which hit a I
15 (Mt from where Da\- was stand-
ins: Mow he ever got away is a
pussle te> me, a> it was the concussion knocked him down and two
small pieces ol the Bhell gave him a
couple ol small cuts on his forehead.
Every other way he was just is sood
as ever,   hut it was a narrow s.iueek
.for him. However such is life out in
, France. Walter Cowling also had a
'near sciueek uu the Bame day, apiece
e.f Bhell about the size of a goose
'egg hit the wall against which he
I ,vas leaning and bounced 'ff bitting
him on the back of his leg wit i
enough force to bruise him. Yes,
! life is rather exciting In Fiance at
times, the last time we were in the
trenches, word was passed along the
line that we were to wall; as lightly
as possible as the Germans were mining our trench an.l -hey didn't want
them l.i -ret the location by sounds
of footsteps, We stayed there three
days, but the Germans' mine didu'r
go ..ll—luckily. Well Allan I have giv-
in you all the news fijr the time being. ! wish I were back iu Reve1
b : a time, a game of tennis and an
Ice cream would ' i very welcome
tight now. The best of luck
tennis club, remember me to all the
members—and don't use up all the
grass or lose all the bull* or fall on
the net before I get hack. I really believe I will return now, my luck has
been bo good. My sister In Hamilton
writes tome Baying that some people there believe the Gem ans ar
going to win the war and that in
ease they do are preparing to go to
the United States. I hope no one in
Revelstoke Is f olish enough to be-
lieve such, absolute nonsense. In any
case in the event .ef Germany winning the United States .vould not lie
much protection and that little for
only a short period. Germany is a
world menace, but the' nation which
will suffer nn st from her tactics will
Me Germany herself, not either British or French. Oh no, England and
her allies will not lose this war, in
fact they are now practically speaking, masters of t-e situation, so >
people in Canada had better take a
tumble to yourselves     and cheer up.

promptly at its hall on First street

been in hospital since. I am recovering wonderfully fast, i think I am a
lucky boy to have come througb

the right arm, the muscles ol It were

Shot for Drunkenness-Strenuous Training at Shorncliffe
Griffiths Promoted
Tlie lollowing letter from Fred
i; i-i iti t lis, who before enlisting for
service at the front was chiel i lerk in
the Canadian Pacitic railway super
intendent's otliee at Revelstoke, giv-
es an Interesting Insight into life at
Shornclifle camp and in the trenches.
The   letter   is   as folle.ws:
1   had  intended    writing    you      for
bi  time, but we have been   on the
move continuously, and 1 have been
Mei busy tbat 1 have bad no time for
personal correspondence. We landed
safely at Plymouth, on the steamship Missanabie, on May 31, and I
then learned for the flrst tune tbat
we had been chased by a German submarine otl Lands End until we fell in
with our escort of destroyers, tho
Lucifer and Legion, which accoinpan
.ird us to Plymouth. The same submarine  sank a steamer off the     same
nast tbe same day. Tbe trip from
Plymouth to our camp, via London
•vas vei y i'. asant, i ul I n usl s.iy
thai our flrst few days experience un-
ier ianvae was prettj hard. We mar
ched into oui camp at - o'cl ck in
the morning, and no preparation bad
been  made  feel us.,  I am glad to say
:owever, that conditions are now
much improved, aid we have a very
decent Sergeants' .Mess (where beer is
allowed). It :s expected thai we will
oe here about     six     weeks i i      two
Tbere are several battalions of thi
I'erst contingent a short distance
from here who have returned from
Frnn?e for rest. Tbey have Borne terrible tales t.) tell, but they seem to
.vr the same old spirit which made
tbem enlist, and are all anxious to
return to the front   Tiiere ure num-
roue wounded and   cripples around,
md in all I should say there are
about 25,001 tr.•■>;,> quartered in the
vicinity. Our men are undergoing
strenuous  training  bere.   tbeir      drill
• 'ins  being   • b 'urs per     day,      and
fatigues in addition.     The' discipline
ilso been tightened considerably,
.nd ■ airmen are finding    out     what
loldiering in wartime involves.     An
who has just returned from the
Bring line was telling us about     tbe
liscipline over there, A man was
Shot f'ir eettine 'irunk. and another
flven i : years imprisonment fur assaulting a woman. There have been
-ime cases of men deliberately putting their hands above tbe trenches
m order to ret slightly wounded and
-.■nt down t>. the base. All cases of
'his kind are tried by a board of
',-nedical officers, and if the charge is
proved the man is punished for
"malingering" and a second charge
for tins offence results in the man tiring taken out by a tile of eight and
t-hot. These and oth !! 1 have
Meard since comine here, have made
me realize what this war is. I do not
think the people over in Canada have
the slightest conception of it  yet.
Dirigibles and aeroplanes pass over
this camp, which overlooks tbe English i'bannel day and niu'ht, and
tome nights when everything Is quiet
nere we can distinctly hear the bijr
gUM in action over the other side.
v.i.i must remember we are only 45
-idles from the firing line. The new
system of triininc which our men
are   receiving   in  bayonet    work     is
very   interestine.    They, charge down
i held, in which there are trenches
nnd luspended neks of material, and
and practice the thrust and parry
while >n the move, carrying on the
practice over three lines of trenches.
While they are doing this they do a
tremendous lot ol .shouting and
cheering,      and      give     one     the
idea they are blood crazy. Some
of them say tbey cannot helji making
a noise over the Work. Tbe boys who
are back here from France say the
Germans do their best lighting at a
distance of live miles. They do not
like tho bayonet, nnd withe,ut ex-
ception they squeal like pigs when
we get to them with the bayonet,
Our  battalion    was  out  on   inspec
tion parade  by General   Steele  yrstet
day,  and  1 will just quote from   our
regimental   diary   regarding   this   parade.  "The general ollicer i manding
told the colonel, 'You have the best
battalion in camp." Col, Ketchen
shook hands with both the I i.C, (Col,
Tobln) and the adjutant (Major
Ross) congratulating tbem on the
splendid showing,  the like   eef  whicli
be  bad   never   witnessed."   He  quoted
Col, Depree, t b del ol staff, as Baying   he had   never      seen    any   guards
regiment that was better. He bad expected men Of line physi ue, but he
found the steadiness of veteran soldiers. Our marching uus Bplendld,
etc." What do you think of that for
the 29th.
The quarter master sergeant In
charge of our orderly room has been
given a commission, and 1 now have
sole charge, but with thc same rank
for the present. This change will
mean that Instead of remaining at.
the base of operations 1 will go up
to the front with the battalion. W<
bave all had a very busy time, and
it looks as though we will be kept
busy, as no time is being wasted
retting ready for the front. Our artillery, I understand is keeping us
back as they bave about three or
tour months work to tit tbem for the
i.eid. N'o leave is being granted yet
to visit our homes, except in special
cases, r think this is about all 1
leave to say this time. Doth Cooper
and myself are keeping well. I hope
I'.iingR are point; alon:- O.K. over
ther,'. Remembei me kindly to tbe
stafl and officers nt Revelstoke. ■
Tommy Hope and several others
from Revelstoke are sjinewh>.re in
this camp and 1 have a message that
they will call to see me during the
next day or so. Major Slater is doing fine. He is going away today for
two weeks instruction in bayonet
