LONDON, June 12. (Correspondence
of the Associated Press.) The Honor
able Artillery Company of London,
w hich, like Its counterpart and relative
in Boston, is one of the oldest and
most aristocratic military organiza
tions in existence, r.jw has In the field
an organization which includes hun
dreds of members of the wealthiest
and most aristocratic families In Eng
land. They have proved their merit
and their democracy on countless oc
casions since they went to France early
in the war.
An observer at British headquarters
sends the following account of a viBit
to the "H. A. C." on a day when they
were resting in the reserve lines:
"Beyond the last farmhouse," he
writes, "I came upon a field about the
size of Madison Square, in New York,
filled with precise rows of bareheaded,
half-dressed soldiers, sitting on their
blankets like Mohammedans at prayer,
enjoying the baking sun.
"That's the H. A. C.,' said my guide,
Metamorphosis la Complete.
"None of the Honorable Artillerymen
looked up from their meditations as I
walked between them. Some wore
trousers and no shirt: others varied
the picture by wearing a shirt and no
trousers. All were evidently tired, and
lazy. Some were sewing on buttons
or mending damaged sections of their
attire. Others had their garments
thrown across their kness. Inside out,
and were inspecting them inch by inch,
gravely and methodically. I had an
impression that I was Intruding upon
a solemn and not unimportant cere
mony. There was absolute silence.
i "How many friends of this famous .
regiment would have recognized the
cropped, unshaven assemblage sitting
on army blankets In that cow pasture?
They had nothing in common with the
epics; and span young gentlemen who
used to appear as glittering guards of
' honor at the London Guildhall and
were generally voted the smartest vol
unteer foot-soldiers in the world. They
looked, in fact, as hard and uncom
promising a set of ruffians as could
be found anywhere in the area of the
war. Hard as nails, they were calm
of eye, sunning themselves after a
week of careful killing, as though the
punishment of Germans had always
been their business.
Imprnwlve Silence Reigns.
"I walked up and down between the
rows, trying to readjust my mental
picture of the Honorable Artillery Com
pany. Here was a wealthy young gen
tleman from the city sitting In his
shirt with his legs bared to the midday
breeze, thoughtfully sewing a button
on his trousers. He pricked his finger
and swore softly. Next to him was a
famous Cambridge scholar, wearing
eyeglasses and trousers. His gray shirt
was spread out in the sunshine and he
regarded it somewhat morosely.
"The silence was striking. I had
passed other battalions not from the
trenches In billets nearby, and the
cheerful chatter of the men could be
heard on all sides. Here the stillness
was broken only by the sound of bag
pipes from the next village, and the
final preluncheon delivery of German
"When the H. A. C. took over the
portion of trenches assigned them the
enemy was engaged in improving his
defenses amid certain ruins. Sandbags
were brought up at night and utilized
as a breaswork against the shattered
walls. Then came a profusion of ma
Germans Rely en Machine Guns.
"The force of enemy Infantry was
really small, but the enemy counted as
usual on machine gun defenses as be
ing more efficacious than riflemen. In
a way they are right. Machine guns
cannot Doit wnen troops attack.
"During the week the Germans be
came bolder and bolder In their move
ments behind their defenses. The H. A.
C. bided their time, and at the right
moments they brought down groups of
workers who dared "to show them
selves out of cover.
"A staff officer came down one day
last week to inspect the new German
defenses, and his contempt for British
marksmanship cost him his life. He
could be seen walking about behind the
breastworks, giving orders and other
wise emphasizing his importance.
'"A certain crack shot waited quietly
beside his rifle. The German officer
came up to the breastwork and looked
through a loophole at our trench. The
markings on his cap could be plainly
seen. There was a shot and a screaml
The bullet hit him squarely In the face.
"Immediately the Germans turned
loose their machine guns in a blaze of
fury. That in itself was sufficient
assurance, that the officer had been
killed. No one was hurt, although the
parapets were peppered with bullets.
When the enemy was tired of shooting
they shouted threats and Imprecations
. across their sap-head."

LONDON. June 1. The story of a
Rrilish sub-lleutenant who was so
angered at the loss of a pair of fine

of Germans single-handed and thereby
earned the Victoria Cross, waa told at
London University In a lecture by I ro
(easor J. 11. A! org an. who has Just
returned from the front.
"Tl-.ls sub-lieutenant." said Profes
sor Morgan, "possessed a pair of bi
noculars of which he waa exceedingly
proud, and he used to bore everybody
oy talking about them and exhibiting
them. One day our men were driven
back from their first trenches by a
Uerinan attack, in which we lost heav
ily. They retired into the support
trenches, and the men were being
mustered, when suddenly the young
officer exclaimed: 'Ureat fccolt!' and
started at a gallop back toward the
trench occupied by the Uermana.

sergeant who was fond of him ran
after him. After an Interval the ser-
gant came back alone, and reported
to the company commander: bir, he
haa captured the trench.
"The commander collected some sup
ports and went up. When ho got
around the corner of the traverse, he
found the young officer with a re
volver In each hand, facing a row of
Germans who were holding up their
hands, having laid down their rifles.

It was a foolhardy thing to do. What
