BROTHER TELLS OF WAR
OREGONIAN MAN READS LETTER
IN LONDON NEWSPAPER,
Conditional at Galllpoll Described Ens-
llBlt Soldiers Die- in Impetuosity
to Attack Foe,
A copy of a London newspaper re
ceived yesterday by W. R. Bridges,
head proofreader of The Oregonian,
contains a report of an interesting let
ter received by Mr. Joscelyne. of the
Bifurcated & Tubular Rivet Company,
Ltd., from Gunner- R. E. Bridges, of the
Royal Garrison Artillery, in the British
Mediterranean expeditionary force. The
latter is a brother of the Portlander.
"It is a barren land, indeed," writes
Mr. Bridges in describing the Gal
lipoli Peninsula. "There is nothing but
mountains, rocks, thorns and flies on
one side, and the sea on the other. The
only real excitement about our life here
is dodging the shells."
The landing was, he says, "hell pure
and simple," but he is thankful to say
he has got safely through so far and
that he and his officer and a chum have
made themselves quite comfortable in
their dugout. His 19-year-old son is
also at the front.
Letters which both Mr. and Mrs.
Bridges, of Portland, have received
from their numerous relatives now en
gaged at the front relate that the loss
of life has been far heavier than was
necessary, the Britishers attacking so
Impetuously that they either could not
or would not heed their officers orders
Mr. Bridges' mother writes that liv
ing expenses are considerably higher
in England now than they formerly
were, but that otherwise conditions are
about normal at home. During the air
raids on London, she says, the explo
sions can be heard miles away.
