Ket up out of our warm blanket'
many it night and hunt a dup out
for mffty while using his li
eight inch guns on us, but they
never put the fear mine hs the
night of tlio nir raid. I cannot
explain to yon ho 1 felt that night
There were inn Hif us in the dug
out and we were ul! crowded up in
one corner. I don't know by
we all win ted to be together no
cloe unless it was nature to be
close to one another. You could
have heard a pin drop, thinu
were so quiet. I guess we were
waiting for the next one to get our
little home, and we all expected
everyone to get Us too. Jerry
would comooyer with a load, open
the tail gate and turn about n
dozen lose, then go hack after an
other load. Ae kept it up nil
night and also gave us a shelling
v lth his big gun. That was
night of hell. I was sure glad
when morning came, ' I canfttaml
his gun anil shells but the air
planes and bombs will put the fear
in the best of them. 1 never want
to pntMn another night likn that.
How we ever came through that
night alive, I don't know. There
must have been someone praying
for our safety and the good Lord
answered them. I prayed thai
night if I never did before, for 1
was sure that morning would see
me well on my way u the othei
world. I must change the subject
or Twill be getting shell shocked
thinking of it. (
When I arrive home I will lei
you my experience while in thh
land of hull. I would like to send
you a picture of no nian'B hind
while Jerry's big shells were burs)
ing on it, for telling or writing
you would not be like Boning a
picture of the real thing which I
have Seen with my own eyes. I
wish. you could have Been some of
the thing I have, What I have
gone through here I would not
lake a million dollars for, nor
would giye a cent to go through
Dad I am going to ring off from
this war till I return homo,

of gcltiijg home by March.
