Well, dad, I have been in the trenches from last Friday until Tuesday and would have enjoyed it very much only for the rain, which made us look like Mudlarks. We had a few narrow escapes. Last Sunday the Germans sent us a few presents from the Kaiser. They were shrapnel shells or as we call them Jack Johnsons, they came very near our trenches but never hurt anybody, and the boys were laughing every time one bursted. There seems to be no fear in the old Lincolns. No one seems to realize it is active service.
P.S. We get a nice drop of rum every day.

Private Jack Sweeney, 1st Battalion, Lincolnshire Regiment

Kevin would like to thank his family, especially his beautiful wife, Lou Caroline, for her constant love and support throughout this journey.
