Wynne letter

In a letter dated 18 February 1915, Wynne gives an account of his life at the Front: "I have my habitation in a small farm about 500 yards behind our trenches; here I stay day and night, and, being connected by telephone with my Battery, I can give them the word to open fire immediately I see anything happening in front or get word from the Infantry... The old Germans certainly have been a bit more on the move lately, and I only wish they would do something to waken things up a bit; we had quite a good 'battue' the other night, when they made an attack in strength on our line; it only lasted an hour, but I was jolly nearly deaf at the end of it; I think we alone (132nd) managed to give over 200 rounds in that space of time."
