“The Army […] gave us a job that was almost impossible to carry out and also did not give us enough support and in many cases […] the Artillery did not cut the wire, the men being shot to pieces trying to get through it”
~ Lt.Col. Agar Adamson (PPLCI) in a letter to his wife, Mabel. 11 October 1916.
