 means of careful preparation as regards details, it appears that a second of the enemy's front line defence can be captured with comparatively little loss.
From a G.H.Q. memo to officers of the field rank and above, 18 April 1915
Petty Officer P. Kempster DSM, Royal Australian Navy died 14/01/1918, aged 34, my wife's grandfather.
Private M.Wein, 1st Bn.Queen's Own Royal West Kent Regt. died 27/09/1918, aged 19, my uncle.
And all the others who died and were wounded in the Great War, and all the terrible conflicts since.
