  5. The main body of Canadian troops were on their way to the Somme and our Battery was to be relieved on the 14th, this was our last trip up the line. The observation officer, the sergeant signaller, another signaller and myself started up on the morning of the twelfth in the best of spirits, never dreaming what we had to go through before we got relieved from this hell-hole of death.

    The observation officer and the sergeant left us at the Halt. The dugout we occupied was part of a dugout used by the tunnellers for keeping their supplies. The first tunneling company at that time was very busy on a large tunnel right under the German lines and the mouth of this tunnel was in front of our dugout; in fact the cutting in this spot was filled high with bags of sand taken out of the tunnel.


    The dugout we were using was about twenty feet long, six feet high at the entrance and ran back to a point. On the roof were about six to eight feet of mud and sand bags. It was a beautiful morning, and I had just got up and relieved my partner on the phone, O. I was sitting looking out of the dugout door and thinking that in a few more hours we would be relieved and away from the Ypres Salient. While I was thinking, two little canaries attracted my attention.

    No doubt you know that canaries are used for detecting gas in deep tunnels.

    Well, these two little birds started a fight over some bird-seed, and as their cage was hanging in the mouth of the dugout I had a good view of the scrap. I was just going to put a mental bet on the one with the black-knot, when Bang! And a big Minniewafer sic landed right on the roof of the dugout near the entrance.

    I grabbed the phone and got the O. Things began to get quite lively. Old Fritz was sending over all kinds of stuff by this time and it looked as if we were in for a rough time. He sent word back to get the Battery and send in the S. It was a perfect hell outside by this time. Our old dugout was rocking like a ship in an angry sea. We expected every minute a big shell would land on it and we would all go up together.

    My chum and myself got back in the dugout as far as possible, as it was absolutely no use trying to get out to fix the line. The strain of expecting to be buried alive is something I never want to go through again. The two dressing stations farther down the Cutting had both been blown in and they brought the wounded and dying into our dugout. It was sad to see some of the lads they brought in.

    The Doctor would look at them, inject something into their arm and tell the stretcher bearers to leave them to one side. We all knew what that meant. He made three desperate efforts that morning to take our trenches, his object being, as we found out afterwards, to get to the mouth of the tunnel and blow it up. He was foiled not by numbers, but by a handful of the bravest of the brave men of the 60th Battalion. I often wonder to this day how it was our dugout was the only one left standing. What a change when we got out. Everything was changed. Trees that had stood shellfire for months before went down that morning.

    Dugouts were flattened all along the Cutting and even the Cutting seemed to be level with the rest of the world. Our battery fired something like five hundred rounds of ammunition that morning, the most they had fired for some time. No doubt they were a big factor in keeping the Hun back. This I think was one of my most exciting experiences in the Great War. Lance Corporal James F.

    Although not a major battle of WWI, the defence of Hill 60 accounted for the third worst day of casualties for the 60th Battalion in the entire war. The Gallipoli campaign has a significance for turning tragedies of the war into friendship between Turkey and the nations which took part in the campaign.

    Beginning with the Korean War, our nations defended the democratic ideals where Turkey played a key role. The 4, strong Brigade played vital roles in different parts of the campaign where the most critical of them was at Kunu Ri in January The counter attack of the encircled Turkish Brigade with bayonets paved the way for a hand-to-hand fight and victory. At the very same hours, the attack against Seoul failed. The Unified Command used both occasions as a conducive environment to start a counter attack towards the 38th parallel — which changed the course of the war.

    Total casualty rate in the Turkish Brigade was among the highest with 22 per cent: martyr, 2, wounded, POWs and Missing in Action. A total of four different Turkish brigades served in Korea totaling total contribution to 23, until Turkey is in a tough neighbourhood and we consider peace and stability in this region crucial for the global security and stability.
