I attach an extract from my grandfather's autobiography that relates to his army experience in WWI. He was badly wounded in August 1918 in an incident in which two of his comrades were killed. On the lighter side his account of how he managed to obtain two Xmas dinners gives a more human insight into how
to survive army life!
