Burying the dead was awful, too awful to describe so I won’t attempt it, but the ceremony that followed was different. We had a most wonderful joint burial service. Our Padre arranged prayers and psalm. They were read first in English by our Padre and then in German by a boy who was studying for the ministry. The Germans formed up on one side, the English on the other, the officers standing in front, every head bared.
Yes, I think it was a sight one will never see again.
- Second Lieutenant Arthur Pelham-Burn, of the 6 Gordon Highlanders
