To THE Memory 


Of the 364th Infantry 







Respectfully Dedicate 
This Book 


THE scope of this book is threefold. First, it 
records historically the activities of a typical 
Infantry Regiment in the Great War, basing 
its account of military operations on official reports, as 
well as upon eyewitness recitals. Second, it depicts 
the average American soldier's life in barracks, billets, 
and on the field, as seen through the eyes of the soldiers 
themselves. Third, it preserves in print something of 
the inner feelings and spirit of the men who were 
privileged to play a part in the "Greatest Crusade in 

The authors take this opportunity to express their 
gratitude to Colonel Lucius C. Bennett and Lieutenant 
Colonel Gordon Voorhiesfor co5peration and valuable 
suggestions, and to all battalion and company com- 
manders for assistance. They are indebted also to the

With the 364th Infantry 

America, France, and Belgium 

With the 364th Infantry 
In America, France, and Belgium 



AMONG the evergreen forests bordering the 
Puget Sound in the great Northwest, the 
364th Infantry received its preliminary train- 
ing. From a great tract of seventy thousand acres, 
the Government selected a site previously used for 
National Guard training and began the erection of 
barracks for a huge camp. To these uncompleted 
two-story buildings came on September 8, 191 7, the 
vanguard of the vast throng which was to constitute 
the Ninety-First Division. As the long trains came 
pulling into camp, they bore many a strange device, 
chalked upon their sides and indicating the spirit of 
the men they contained. Here are a few samples: 
Katydid Kaiser, Keel-haul 'im. Kerosene 'im!" 
A Palace for Peace, A Kennel for the Kaiser!" 
Hell, Highwater, or Huns can't stop We'uns!" 
Postprandial Potion for Potentate at Potsdam: A 
Potpourri of Potassium, Persimmon, and Perdition, 
administered by Dr. Uncle Sam!" 



It was a motley throng of men who alighted from 
the trains. There were representatives from all the 
walks of city life — business men, professional men, 
clerks, factory workers, longshoremen, school teachers, 
showmen; there were a few seafaring men; there were 
ranchers; there were men frdm desert, plain, and 
mountain, with sunburned faces: all coming up 
together, rich and poor alike, in answer to the world's 
emergency. The motley appearance was accentuated 
by the variegated clothing worn which ranged all the 
way from the carefully tailored suit of the man from 
Los Angeles to the broad-rimmed sombrero and 
grizzled chaps of the cowboy hailing fronfi the ranches 
of Montana. 

We were received at the station by commissioned 
officers and checked off through a temporary receiving 
shed where we were examined for contagious diseases. 
Our baggage was then loaded on motor trucks and 
we were marched off to be assigned to barracks and 
companies. Such was, for the majority of us, our 
introduction to the business of soldiejping, a life which, 
to the most of us, had no counterpart in our previous 

Having had a chance to look around at this section 
of the world, discovered by the intrepid explorers, 
Lewis and Clark, we found ourselves surrounded by 
beauty — and dust! 

The long lines of barracks were built in the shape of 
a horseshoe on a level plain, surrounded on three sides 
by low hills, covered with splendid fir forests. In the 
east, standing like a mighty sentinel, loomed the vast 
icy peak of Mount Rainier. A short trip in a north- 
westerly direction brought us to the clear waters of 
American Lake. Here, with the fir trees for an 



.audience, many an incipient doughboy splashed and 
shivered in a brave attempt to remove layers of ac- 
cumulated dust. In the forest bordering its shores, 
in the old Camp Murray area, married officers later 
reared their humble cabins or tents and lived idyllic 
lives in moments free from military routine. Dancing, 
boating, and fishing attracted many a soldier when off 
duty. A little farther to the west lay the island- 
studded expanse of Puget Sound. Altogether, from a 
scenic standpoint, the embryo soldiers found their 
camp site quite ideal. 

Not so much could be claimed for other camp 
features. The pioneers at Camp Lewis found it in a 
very rough and unfinished condition with a lack of 
anything resembling paved roads or sidewalks. As a 
consequence, the heavy tralfic turned the roads into 
deserts of dust which the wind took pleasure in de- 
positing in the innermost recesses of barracks and 
personal clothing. This personal clothing, by the 
way, was for a time a peculiar combination of Govern- 
ment issue and civilian clothing, giving a ludicrous 
appearance to the troops. 

Hailing, as practically all the original enlisted 
personnel of the regiment did, from the southern half 
of California, the men's favorite theme for criticism 
was the weather. For, while the fall of 1917 brought 
many a day of beauty and sunlight, the beginning of 
the rainy season seemed to be synonymous with the 
beginning of gloom for many. Just to show what 
could be done along that line in the Northwest the 
Weather Man registered some sixteen inches of rain 
during the month of December alone, thus surpassing 
hirty-one days the entire annua! rainfall for South- 
California. Fortunately, the soil of Camp Lewis 


is of the thirsty variety so that the surface of the drill 
field was seldom very muddy. Not so with the roads, 
which were transformed from deserts of dust Into seas 
of mud. The majority of the officers of the regiment 
came from the Northwest and so did not mind the 
rain as much as did the men. 

Before the rainy season had set in, many an O. D. 
back had been bent in the pleasant occupation of 
picking up stones for the building of walks. But with 
the coming of winter, the work of leveling, grading, 
sump- and gutter-digging, and walk-building began in 
earnest. But all these efforts did not prevent a flood 
pouring down a depression which crossed the regimen- 
tal area and flooding some of the ground occupied by 
officers' barracks. Arising on the morning of Novem- 
ber 28th, at the insistent First Call, five-forty-five, 
we were treated to a strange sight — a beautiful rain- 
bow in the east, caused by the full moon just setting 
in the west. But it was evidently the first oppor- 
tunity the moon had had to show its face that night 
fpr part of the ground was transformed into a veritable 
lake which had to be circumambulated in seeking re- 
veille posts. Dusk of the same day witnessed our 
Brigade Commander, General Foltz, splashing in the 
waters of this same lake, testing the waterproof quali- 
ties of a new pair of rubber boots! 

On February 1st, the camp awakened with a shout, 
for it was a white world that greeted our eyes— a new 
experience to the native Californians who had never 
seen snow except on the distant mountain peaks. The 
men gamboled like children in the snow, some lying 
out at full length, and having their pictures snapped. 
Many windowpanes were shattered by snowballs! 

The serious business at Camp Lewis was the getting

r ready for a crack at the Huns. This involved drill 
and yet more drill — seven hours a day of it. Colonel 
Elmer W. Clark and Lieut. Colonel Archie J. Harris 
saw to it that our drill schedule was faithfully carried 
3Ut. First Call was sounded at five-forty-five in the 
morning, Reveille at six o'clock, with breakfast im- 
mediately following, inspection between seven and 
seven-thirty, physical exercise between seven-thirty 
and eight-thirty, and drill until eleven-thirty. In the 
afternoon drill began at one and continued until four- 

I thirty when Recall sounded, summoning the troops 
back to barracks to stand Retreat. Mess was served 
at five or five-thirty, depending upon the season, and 
Noncommissioned Officers' School immediately after- 
ward. In the early days before the cooks mastered 
the art of preparing "slum" in more than one way, we 
agreed that " mess" was the proper appellation for the 
meals served. 
But the monotony of Squads "East" and "West" 
was relieved by instruction in trench warfare which 
involved the digging and revetting of trenches, the 
sinking of dugouts, practice in the throwing of deadly 
hand grenades, consisting of stones picked up on the 
drill-grounds. Gas-mask drill, bayonet practice, and 
open-warfare maneuvers by companies, battalions, 
regiments, and brigades also helped to relieve the 
monotony. Battalion or regimental reviews and 
parades were scheduled weekly, and on November 20th 
Ih and again on April 11th, the whole Division was 
^B reviewed by the Commanding General, Major General 
^H H. A. Greene. Another maneuver in which all took 
!^^ part was a divisional hike on April 30th. But perhaps 
the part of the training which made the greatest 
appeal to us was the target practice both with the 


rifle and machine gun. Some exceptionally good 
scores were registered by this WHd West bunch, who, 
while perhaps not " quick on the trigger, " in the " bad 
man" sense, had yet had opportunity in hunting to 
develop a keen eye and steady hand. Of course not 
all were crack shots as was the case of the man from 
Company ""£'' who had difficulty in locating the 
target. In a brave attempt to answer the sarcastic 
observations of his Sergeant he said, " 1 don't know 
what the trouble is, but I do know that the bullets 
are leaving here all right. " 

But life at Camp Lewis was not all a grind of drill 
by any manner of means; Saturday afternoons and 
Sundays and Wednesday afternoons were holidays 
for all except those who were unfortunate enough to 
be on guard, on K. P., or in the " brig. " A visitor 
to Camp Lewis on Friday evening might think he had 
arrived in the original "spotless town," to judge from 
the busy hands at work scrubbing canvas leggings, 
polishing shoes, and cleaning rifles for Saturday inspec- 
tions, lest an inspection reprimand might amount to 
the canceling of a week-end holiday. The same visi- 
tor might think that Camp Lewis was endangered by 
another eruption of the ancient volcano Mt. Ranier to 
judge by the wild exodus by foot, motor 'bus, and 
train on a Saturday afternoon. The long waiting lines 
before the 'bus ticket office were a pleasure only to 
the M. P.'s, but once landed safely in some town 
beyond the camp limits, joy began again. The famous 
paved road between Camp Lewis and Tacoma could 
tell many tales of traffic regulations and records 
broken and of wild rides in early morning hours to 
make Reveille on time. By some freak of luck, the 
364th Infantry registered no casualties on this narrow 


racetrack although three of our officers were injured 
in an automobile accident in Tacoma, one seriously. 

For those who remained in camp on these holidays, 
various forms of recreation were provided. During 
the fall season, football was the leading sport, with 
inter-regimental contests. Some very good players 
were found among the "rookies" and excellent games 
were played. In the spring, baseball became the 
leading pastime, and when the Wednesday half- 
holiday was canceled, the long evenings before dark 
were utilized by the followers of the national pastime. 
Other games such as volley and basket ball were 
favorites with many. A divisional athletic meet 
brought out excellent performances both in ordinary 
field events and military stunts. Our regimental band 
won first place in this meet in competition with other 
bands of the Division. Boxing and wrestling were 
fostered both by regimental smokers and later by 
divisional contests. Under the leadership of Willie 
Ritchie, former world's lightweight champion, a 
divisional boxing contest was staged in which a 
number of men from the 364th Infantry won high 

In the evenings old " Y" No. 4 would be crowded 
with doughboys enjoying the "movies" or some enter- 
tainment of a musical or athletic nature. The building 
was also much used by letter writers, and the lovers of 
apples and chocolates who had had the good fortune 
to experience payday in the Army found stocks 
always on sale. 

A camp library and theater and later, Greene Park, 
with its wealth of joy-producers and money-teasers, 
afforded recreation for us. For the benefit of the 
regiment, our Assembly Hall was fitted up into a local 


library and reading room. Four billiard tables were 
installed and run in connection with a branch of 
the Post Exchange. While campaigning in France 
and Belgium, many a doughboy meditated longingly 
upon the facilities Camp Lewis offered in the way of 
candy, cigarettes, movies, tables for chow, "couche" 
cots, newspapers, girl friends, and so forth. If the 
regiment had been allowed to choose a mascot to take 
overseas with them, even with " I " Company's bear, 
"Theda Bara," as a contender, the vote would have 
been unanimous for the Hostess House — and its occu- 
pants! Lying wounded on the Argonne battlefield, 
more than one lad has thought, "Oh, for a sight of an 
old Hostess House friend, or only a sip of that delicious 
ice cream!" And the H. H. cuisiniere could have sold 
innumerable of her famous pies at fifty francs per at 
any company chow-iine in the 364th infantry along 
about September or October, 1918. 

But there was one Camp Lewis experience which 
we were ail glad to leave behind — that of being in 
quarantine. Oh, plan-crusher, joy-killer, and gloom- 
producer! How we did love the old quarantine, be it 
meningitis, scarlet fever, mumps, or just plain measles! 
It was bad enough when one company was cut off 
from the world, but when it became a regimental 
affair, we felt that Sherman's war vocabulary was 
quite inadequate. Some of the men became so des- 
perate under quarantine restraint that they broke a 
record and went to "church" when the Chaplain 
would come around to the Company Mess Hall to 
hold Sunday services. 

Another soldier's delight was the famous "shot" 
in the arm, which was in reality a triple shot, adminis- 
tered separately with time in between to register full

pleasurable effects, and with a vaccination thrown in 
for good measure. But at least the regiment never 
suffered from typhoid or smallpox even though every 
other disease ever catalogued was named over in 
those early morning sick calls, and the panacea for all 
was the inevitable "O. D.'s" or " Camp Lewis Special." 

But while drill was hard and medical treatment 
drastic, and food plain, the result of this combination, 
as expressed in living flesh and blood, was not to be 
despised. Rounded shoulders straightened, flabby 
muscles hardened, thin bodies took on weight, and 
thick bodies lost weight, so that the somewhat un- 
promising raw material, sent to Camp Lewis in Sep- 
tember and October, was a sight to delight the eyes 
of old army inspectors by Christmas time. Husky, 
straight, and with a glow of health on their cheeks, 
many of the men could scarcely be recognized as the 
same individuals who had stepped off the draft train 
a few months previously — they bore as eloquent a 
testimony to the benefits of army life as the "before 
and after" pictures endorsing Herpicide's hair tonic. 
Weight was added in practically every individual case 
and it was the kind of weight that was bound to turn 
the scales when thrown in on the world's battlefields. 

Thanksgiving and Christmas were celebrated in 
the good old-fashioned way with turkey and all 
the fixings. Christmas eve, being a clear night, was 
utilized by the band for serenading the companies 
which were so unfortunate as to be in quarantine. 
Most of the companies arranged special entertain- 
ments and the holiday season was made as nearly 
homelike as possible. The ones who enjoyed it the 
least were the unfortunate " K. P.'s." The fact that 
K. P. stands for Kitchen Police was responsible for 


some discomfiture on the part of Private Hicks, of the 
Headquarters Company, during the early days of his 
military career. His Captain had inquired if he had 
had any experience on Kitchen Police. "Yes," Hicks 
replied proudly, " I have served on the police force of 
my own town for a number of years." "Very well, 
rU try you out on the police force of the company 
kitchen to-morrow (Sunday)." Hicks saw visions of 
a life free from drill. Sixteen hours' of peeling potatoes 
and scrubbing floors disillusioned Hicks and he after- 
wards referred to K. P. as " Kitchen Prisoners" rather 
than Kitchen Police. 

On February 22d, an order came transferring 403 
men from the regiment to Camp Greene, S. C, and 
incidentally lowering the morale of the officers and 
men remaining, who concluded that this would set 
the regiment back considerably in its training and 
thus delay our progress to France. But the non-com- 
missioned officers were kept and soon the new replace- 
ments were whipped into shape alongside the veterans. 

The Germans launched their terrific drive on the 
Western Front, March 21st, and for weeks the war 
outlook was dark. An eclipse of the sun on June 8th, 
which was visible at Camp Lewis, seemed to sym- 
bolize the cloud of gloom and uncertainty which over- 
hung the world. But in our hearts we knew we would 
soon be realizing our great goal, for the need for troops 
to turn the tide of battle would sooner or later lead 
to a call for the Ninety-first or "Wild West" Division 
and we would go forth from our Alma Mater of mili- 
tary training to lend our aid to make the world safe 
for democracy. 



THE morning papers of May 17, 1 918, carried the 
announcement by the Commanding General, 
that the Ninety-first Division would move 
within two months. Immediately the camp assumed 
an aspect of unusual stir and activity. Plans were 
carefully laid, inventories were made, freight was 
boxed, and approximately twenty-seven thousand men 
prepared to break up housekeeping. A vanguard 
of officers and men soon left on the long journey for 
France for purposes of debarkation, billeting, and at- 
tending special schools. 

Finally came the dates for the moving of the regi- 
ment, June 26th and 27th. Eight trains were sched- 
uled to leave over three different routes. Friends and 
relatives from far and near were on hand to bid fare- 
well to those about to go forth into the great adventure. 
Thousands more, who could not be present in person, 
were present in spirit. It was a brave American fare- 
well which was given by friends and loved ones to us 
who, because of the dark war outlook, might be absent 
for years. And because there were more smiles than 
tears as the trains pulled out, we faced the future with 
stouter hearts. 

But the hardships of war were not to begin quite 
yet. The trains were first-class, with sleeping cars for 




all, and with a baggage car transformed into a huge 
rolling kitchen. There were no fares to pay or meals 
to buy or baggage to worry about, and with nothing 
to do but view the scenery and receive the glad-hand 
en route, we settled down for an enjoyable trans- 
continental trip. And so it proved to be. The trains 
were cheered whenever any farmer, villager or towns- 
man caught sight of olive drab through the car 
windows. And, "Oh boy, those station receptions with 
Red Cross women serving lemonade, sandwiches, 
coffee, ice cream, cherries, and candy, and with girls 
to kiss, and addresses to be exchanged," as one dough- 
boy described it later in a letter home. As another 
man expressed it, " I wouldn't have missed this war 
for the world!" 

At Spokane, one of our medical officers succeeded 
in missing his train after a stroll about town. But 
nothing daunted, he mounted a switch engine and, 
after a harrowing race, caught up with his train. 
Someone suggested this bit of melodrama would have 
brought a high price in the movie world, but two essen- 
tials were lacking^one villain and one girl to be 

At Big Lake, Minn., the trains routed over the 
Northern Pacific were stopped long enough to allow 
us to go in bathing. Then, leaving the great mountains 
and valleys of the West behind, the trains rushed on 
across the prairies of the Middle West and the hills 
and valleys of the East as fast as the giant engines 
could pull them, for the war had settled down into a 
race between the Kaiser's onrushing legions and the 
great untried forces of America's man-power. Finally 
the trains pulled up before the small station of Du- 
mont, N. J., similar in spelling to the old Camp Lewis 



station of Dupont, and we piled out of the cars near 
the banks of the historic Hudson, Just five days after 
climbing aboard on the Pacific Coast, three thousand 
miles away. A short hike brought us to the famous 
embarkation rendezvous. Camp Merritt. Here we 
were assigned to barracks, and the work of equipping 
us with new outfits for overseas service went merrily 
on night and day. 

The one fact uppermost in all minds was that just 
across the river lay a huge city with all of its enchant- 
ing diversions, ready to welcome any doughboy for- 
tunate enough to be armed with a pass— and coin of 
the realm. But passes were difficult to coax from the 
authorities because we had to be entirely equipped 
with a new outfit before permission could be obtained 
to visit New York, and even then only a certain per- 
centage of each company was allowed to see the home 
of the Great White Way. Many a pint of midnight 
oil was burned in striving to get that coveted equip- 
ment. The Fourth of July came and went and still 
there were many who had one more river to cross 
before they could give little old New York the "once 

Spiral puttees, issued at Camp Merritt in place of 
the canvas leggings, were responsible for many a 
soldier's undoing. Accustomed after many months' 
service to gauge to the last second their morning's 
rising, these soldiers discovered that the spiral puttees 
did not spiral and that it required more time to wrap 
them around their hiking apparatus than it did the 
discarded leggings. Consequently many were forced 
to either stand Reveille puttee-less in the rear rank, 
if any vacancies still remained, or to explain later to an 
inquisitive "skipper" why they were absent at the 


morning's formation. Many men were disappointed 
in being compelled to give up well-fitting uniforms for 
clothing which was both ill-fitting and shoddy in 

At last, on the morning of July i ith, we all turned 
our faces in the direction of the great city. Before 
the birds were fairly awake, a long column of men were 
silently wending their way through the wooded heights 
between the camp and the river, bound at last for the 
far-flung battle-line of Freedom. There was no cheer- 
ing or even loud talking permitted for there were 
others besides birds who might be lurking around as 
tale bearers. Down the steep Palisades at Alpine 
Landing, the long, snake-like column of olive drab 
silently slipped and slid to the water's edge where it 
disappeared into two huge ferryboats lying in the 

Out into the broad Hudson, the boats chugged and 
then turned their snouts downstream. Soon we found 
ourselves opposite the great city and amid a host of 
strange objects, daubed with color, which we im- 
mediately recognized as camouflaged ships. On the 
western shore lay numerous army transports among 
the Hoboken piers, but it was toward the east we 
turned and drew up at Pier 59 with many a thrill. 
For there lay a huge leviathan, out-measuring any- 
thing else on the horizon. 

The ferryboats spewed forth their great throngs 
which immediately filled the enormous pier buildings 
and began a savage attack on bushels of refreshments 
which thoughtful organizations had provided. 

Then began the entry into the ark, which proved to 
be none other than the great Olympic, now masquerad- 
ing under a coat of badly-blended brown and black 



and yellow paint and sailing under a number instead 
of a name. To our delight, two hundred nurses of 
feminine gender were sent up the gangplank. They 
were to make a pleasant trip twofold more pleasant. 

Once aboard, a trip of exploration was in order. 
We sometimes thought that the object in placing us 
aboard such a huge ship was threefold: first, to accus- 
tom us to the gentle practice of locating billets with 
ease, for there were several thousand hammocks 
aboard and all looked alike and were apparently dis- 
tributed in haphazard fashion; secondly, to get us in 
practice for strenuous marching later on, for the ship, 
being 890 feet long, required more than a quarter of a 
mile's hike to circle it, a thing one had to do every 
time he set out to find either his hammock or his chow; 
thirdly, to break us into the delights of dugout life, 
for the old boat boasted twelve stories, five of them 
under water. But the floating palace of peace days, 
now remodeled as a troop transport, had many items 
in her favor, namely, she could carry the whole regi- 
ment of 3600 men with a sanitary and ammunition 
train thrown in; she was fast and traveled alone rather 
than in a convoy, thus being able to develop her full 
speed; she was so huge that those few who harbored 
any submarine fears felt that it would take a whole 
school of torpedoes to sink her. 

We remained motionless at the dock from the fore- 
noon of July nth until nine o'clock on the morning 
of Friday, July 12th, when the giant craft began her 
long journey. Simultaneously with her first shudder- 
ing movement, each one took unto himself a bosom 
friend in the form of a life preserver, which, on the 
pain of a turn in the brig, was always to be worn 
except when sleeping. Out on the high seas, the 




guards' favorite diversion was to keep a sharp lookout 
for some luckless officer of high rank who had for- 
gotten his life-belt, or who carried it in his hand instead 
of on his back. 

If secrecy was the word as we silently trudged from 
Camp Merritt to the river, it was promptly forgotten 
by those in command of the Olympic. Instead of a 
stealthy fade-away in the dark, the great ship, crowded 
with soldiers, sailed majestically through the busy 
harbor in broad daylight, the object of the gaze of 
thousands on boats and on land and the subject of 
much cheering and waving. In the outer harbor a 
vast throng of camouflaged freighters were assembled 
in convoy formation, heavily laden with supplies. 
Past them we gradually pushed our way out into the 
misty deep until the famous statue, symbolic of that 
liberty for which we were to fight, disappeared from 

But with the fading from view of the metropolis, 
our attention was turned to a slim, sleek craft which 
appeared to be running circles around us. It proved 
to be a convoying destroyer of particularly jaunty 
appearance because of the brilliance of its yellowish 
streaks of camouflage. Almost simultaneously, a 
dirigible balloon appeared over us and two or three 
aeroplanes hummed industriously about. The dirigi- 
ble remained as sky escort until four in the afternoon 
when it turned back, but the trim little destroyer was 
still cutting the waves in wide sweeps ahead of us when 
the fine summer day gave way to darkness. With the 
coming of morning, the destroyer had also disappeared 
and the Olympic zigzagged across the seemingly de- 
serted ocean for five days, quite alone. 

Many factors contributed to make the ocean voyage 


a pleasant one. it was taken at the best season of the 
year for sea travel. Excellent weather and calm seas 
favored us. Aboard ship there was abundant talent 
for entertainment. And the possibility of a peep at a 
submarine added another little thrill to our adventure. 

In order to guard against the piratical "tin fish," 
a rigid guard was maintained. A comprehensive 
system for manning the lookout posts and the water- 
tight compartment doors was in operation day and 
night. The guard personnel including the M. P.'s 
numbered into the hundreds. Stationed forward, 
amidships, and aft, scores of soldier eyes constantly 
searched the surrounding waters for a possible peri- 
scope of a U-boat. Six big guns, alertly manned, 
pointed across the waves in various directions in a 
very menacing and businesslike way. 

When a call was made for entertainers, the result 
would have pleased a Belasco. Several performances 
were given. The ship's captain allowed the men to 
crowd together and enjoy the music and stunts out 
on the exposed decks even while in the danger zone. 
The enlisted men were entertained from seven to nine 
in the evening and then the stage was shifted to the 
dining saloon for a nine o'clock performance for the 
officers and nurses. 

Services were held in three different parts of the 
great ship Sunday morning, July 14th. We were 
fortunate in having on board with us some notables 
of the New York financial world and also Mr. Herbert 
Hoover, These men consented to speak to us in the 
evening and one of the striking statements made that 
night which indicated the critical outlook for the 
Allies was "the one thing for which we are praying is 
for the fall of snow to stop the Germans!" Little did 


we realize that the day upon which those words were 
spoken was the first day of the ever-memorable week 
which marked the breaking of the last great German 
offensive upon the stone wall of Allied resistance, and 
the beginning of Foch's counter-attack which was to 
bring victory before the fall of snow. 

Before Mr. Hoover appeared to speak to the large 
throng of men gathered on the aft deck. Chaplain 
Lyman Rollins, a veteran of several months' service in 
France, told us of experiences with the Huns, amusing 
and otherwise. Then when the Honorable Mr. 
Hoover, feeder of a world, mounted to the search- 
light platform, and was introduced, some irrepressibles 
on the lower deck shouted, "We don't want Hoover. 
He feeds us tripe for breakfast!" Mr. Hoover laugh- 
ingly disclaimed the honor of being sponsor for the 
serving of that breakfast delicacy and proceeded to 
tell us about the simple job of rationing a world. 

Speaking of tripe reminds us of some of the ex- 
changes constantly going on between soldiers and the 
ship's crew — exchanges of postcards, tobacco, and 
also of fists. One sailor suddenly found himself in 
Dreamland when he chose to remark, in the presence 
of a horny-handed American Sergeant, that " the next 
war would be between the two 'yellow' races, the 
Japanese and American. " No charges were preferred. 
Again, after champion "midget" Sepulveda of Q)m- 
pany "A" had put to sleep a husky deck hand who 
refused to obey orders, some of the crew were heard 
to remark, " If the smallest bloody man in the outfit 
can fight like that what could the big guys do?" 

The announcement that we were at last within the 
danger zone only added to our thrills of interest. 
Thousands of pairs of curious eyes searched the sur- 



rounding waves for a possible Hun periscope. One 
grizzled member of the ship's crew, after watching 
the actions of this Wild West bunch, delivered himself 
of the following: "Well, I'll be hornswoggled! It's 
many a load of troops I've seen cross in this old boat, 
but never a gang like this. Generally about this time, 
one can see a lot of Bibles in evidence and scared looks 
on the owners' faces. But if we sighted a submarine 
this minute, every American on the ship would be 
crowding the rails to see her, and, if she succeeded in 
launching a torpedo, all that these doughboys would 
do would be to watch its course and yell ' Raspberry'!" 

But no subs appeared. However, those in command 
were taking no chances. Every day throughout the 
trip, alarms were sounded, boats were manned, water- 
tight doors were closed, and all rushed to their ap- 
pointed posts. 

Upon entering the danger zone, the ship's para- 
vanes were lowered into the water. These were 
contrivances shaped like torpedoes, equipped with 
wings which held them out at an angle of forty-five 
degrees from the ship's prow, to which they were 
attached by steel cables. They were placed low 
enough in the water to intercept the cables of any 
mines in the ship's course and the paravane cables, 
extending out from the ship, would not only ward off 
the deadly mine head but would force the mine cable 
into the saw-tooth mouth of the paravane which 
would promptly sever it and cause the mine to float 
on the surface where it could be easily destroyed. 

We awoke, the morning of Thursday, July i8th, 
to the fact that five U, S. destroyers had surrounded 
us and were convoying us through the last lap of the 
journey. They had come forth from their British 


port to meet us and, the use of wireless being denied 
them, had stationed themselves in a Hne athwart our 
proposed route at intervals of twelve miles. The 
destroyer which first sighted us, signalled our presence 
to the others by means of a dense smoke cloud and 
soon we were surrounded by our speedy little zig- 
zagging friends. On the aft end of the nearer boats 
could be seen an "egg" breakfast for the Huns — neat 
piles of depth bombs ready to be dropped into the 
haunts of enemy subs. These gave us great assurance 
of safety but the thing that delighted our hearts the 
most was the sight of the American ensign which 
seemed to breathe a message from home. 

Toward midnight of the eighteenth we sighted the 
light at Scilly isle on our starboard side and the light 
at Land's End on our port side. The moon was out 
just enough to aid the U-boats but we successfully 
crossed the "ships' graveyard" and morning found 
us in sight of the Isle of Wight. 

At the entrance to the harbor leading to Southamp- 
ton, the ship was stopped, paravanes hoisted on deck, 
and a pilot taken aboard. The scene before us was 
suggestive of the grim war being waged against the 
submarine. The sea was filled with destroyers, P- 
boats, friendly submarines, hydroplanes, buoys mark- 
ing mine fields, and nets. Out of the shallow water 
protruded the masts of a recent victim of the under- 
_seas wasps. We learned about this time that we had 
narrowly escaped a similar fate, the America-bound 
Carpathia having been sunk not far from us. 

Proceeding into the harbor, we passed through the 
opening between the nets near Portsmouth and lay 
to for several hours awaiting the tide. Finally we 
slowly made our way up the channel to the piers of 




Southampton, reaching our destination at five in the 
afternoon of July 19th. We had arrived at the very 
port from which the Mayflower had sailed with our 
forefathers three centuries before. We were now 
returning, many thousand strong, to aid our Mother 
in her fight for the liberty which that ancient band 
had set out to seek. 

Below us, British soldiers, policemen, and civilians 
afforded us amusement as they scrambled for coins 
and cigarettes dropped from the ship's sides. Near by 
a large steamer displayed a gaping hole in her side 
commemorative of a recent engagement with the 
enemy. Across the way a cross-channel boat was 
being crammed with men from a unit of the Ninety- 
first preparatory to the trip to France. Their identity 
was made known by a thousand swinging arms talking 
the language of the wig-wag. 

We remained aboard ship one more night (cele- 
brated by having a farewell dance on the top deck) 
and began disembarking the following morning. The 
regiment remained in the dock sheds throughout the 

We began boarding the ferryboats at six-thirty in 
the evening for a night run across the Channel. 
Those aboard La Marguerite will never remember her 
with a surplus of affection. A trip which lasted from 
8 P.M. until 5 A.M., in a boat packed like a can of 
sardines, with men piled on top of one another on the 
floor, or walking the cold, windy deck all night long, 
tells the story. One destroyer and one P-boat accom- 
panied us through the crooked Channel lane lined 
with nets, but no U-boat appeared to take our minds 
off our woe. 

Our port of arrival in France, with its tall, strange- 


looking buildings proved to be the city of Le Havre. 
At seven o'clock in the morning we began streaming 
down the gangplanks and at last had the pleasure of 
planting our feet squarely down upon the soil of 
France. We were marched through the town and 
up on the neighboring heights which overlooked the 
harbor, and given formal introduction to our first 
rest camp (i. e., a camp with the "rest" left out). It 
was a British affair consisting of a conglomeration of 
round, camouflaged tents for men and chicken-coop 
shacks for officers, with a special section reserved for 
German prisoners. Fortunately, our "rest" in this 
waterless, cheerless spot was to be of short duration. 

The terrific fighting in the Marne salient was in 
progress and, whether from that battle or bombard- 
ments further to the west, the sound of distant guns 
was borne to our ears during the night. This seemed 
almost incredible because of the great distance inter- 
vening between us and the battle line. But something 
more tangible from this critical battle reached the 
city where we lay — a trainload of wounded Americans. 
These were placed in a French hospital where no 
English was spoken and so our Chaplain was sent for. 
He found the men bearing their sufferings with sur- 
prising stoicism and cheerfulness, a token of American 
grit to be displayed on many a bloody field before 
the war was won. 

We bade a cheerful good-bye to our "rest" camp 
on the evening of July 22d and marched to the rail- 
road station where we proceeded to board our first 
"side-door Pullmau" cars in France. No story of the 
A. E. F. would be complete without a reference to 
these joy-producers. Each car had printed upon it the 
number of men or horses it would "accommodate" 


and most of the cars read "40 Hommes, 8 Chevaux." 
By the time forty men crowded into one of these toy 
box cars they wished they were horses instead of men, 
as one doughboy expressed it. 

Our route lay through Rouen and Versailles and up 
the valley of the Seine to the area to the north of the 
town of Chaumont in which was located the American 
General Headquarters. The scenery en route was 
most interesting. French land is intensively culti- 
vated and the fields are small, giving a peculiar 
checkerboard appearance to the hillsides of ripening 
harvests. The country appeared to be one of beautiful 
curves of hill and valley covered with this patchwork 
of different colored fields with the inevitable copse of 
wood and tiled village to lend enchantment to the 
scene. Hard at work in the fields were to be seen the 
industrious Frenchwomen, taking the places of their 
men-folk who were at the front. But frequently a 
glint of horizon blue told of some poilu at home on 
leave, spending his "permission" in toil. We passed 
many troop trains both French and American and 
they all claimed to be headed toward Chateau- 
Thierry. We envied those Americans because they 
had progressed so far as to possess the jaunty little 
overseas cap while we still wore the broad-rimmed 
sombreros which characterized us as "rookies" in 
France. We envied them, also, because they were 
bound for the Front. Our rations en route were of the 
variety packed in tin with an occasional cup of bitter 
French coffee obtained at designated stations along 
the way. 

Finally, in the early morning of Wednesday, July 
24th, exactly four weeks since our first train had left 
Camp Lewis, we detrained at the town of Andelot, 



Department of Haute-Marne. Here we were given as 
extensive a welcome as her facilities offered by Mrs. 
Fitzgerald, a pleasant American woman who was in 
charge of the local Y. M. C. A. After washing up and 
getting something to eat, we awaited developments. 

We received orders at four in the afternoon to 
march to the villages which were to be our home during 
our training period. The distance to be covered to 
these points varied from six to twelve miles and, being 
worn out by our railroad journey, we found it rather 
trying to make the march and then to be billeted in 
the dark after arrival. But finally we were all tucked 
safely away with the cows and the chickens, our long 
journey over land and sea ended at last — ^for a while. 


WITH the long hike from Andelot fresh in our 
minds (and feet and backs!) we awakened 
the morning of July 25th to a life which was 
strangely foreign to the life which we had known but a 
short time before at Camp Lewis; in less than one 
month we had gone from a place which was as nearly 
akin to home as our Government, the Hostess House, 
Greene Park, and the good people of the whole West 
could make it, across a continent and a sea, to a little 
area fifteen miles north of Chaumont where, for the 
first time, we began to truly appreciate the comforts 
of the great cantonment on the shores of American 
Lake. The regiment was billeted in five small French 
villages — Bourdons, Forcey, Millieres, Longchamp 
and Sarcey. These little towns will live longer in the 
memory of the men of the regiment, perhaps, than the 
hundreds of other places which were seen, later, during 
the marches and campaigns in France and Belgium, 
They stand out, alone, as giving expression to the im- 
pressions we have formed of France and the French 
people. 1 1 was our first real impression of the country 
for which we had pledged our lives, if necessary, to 
sustain against the common foe. 

French towns were a novelty to the men of theWest, 

whose homes were, for the most part, in California, 




Washington, and Oregon — states which pride them- 
selves on the natural and created beauty of their towns 
and cities. Instead of a row of neat business blocks, 
with plate glass windows and several stories in height, 
and homes with well-kept lawns situated in districts 
devoted to residential purposes exclusively, they found 
in these towns, single-storied stone or concrete build- 
ings, old and brown with age, with moss-covered, 
thatched roofs, and casement windows which were 
conspicuous if they were unbroken. And each of these 
buildings was at once a dwelling-house, store, and 
stable. If you were fortunate enough to be billeted 
with the family of the owner, you might frequently 
mistake the door to the stable for the door to the 
family parlor. The wide thoroughfares of Western 
cities were replaced by narrow, winding streets which 
were not cleaned until the soldiers themselves, with 
improvised brooms made from willow switches tied 
together, swept them free of the refuse which had 
accumulated since the Eighty-third Division had left, 
several weeks before. All the streets, and in fact, the 
life of the whole community radiated from the single 
church which in every village crowned the highest 
ground in the neighborhood and seemed to hover the 
smaller buildings about it with the care a goose exer- 
cises over her goslings. As you approached one of 
these villages, on one of the singularly white roads — 
white in the summertime only — you would see the 
spire and cross of the church long before the village 
came into sight. French villages are picturesquely 
nestled in valleys, the white roads stretching away 
from them across the hills or along the contours like 
the stays of a giant fan. 
Little could we realize that the France which was 


represented by these tiny villages and green, rolling 
hillsides, had been at war four years. The whole 
country seemed to smile at us in the wealth of the 
summer's sunshine; the people of the village did not 
reflect the fact that they had lost, in killed, as many 
as fifty men from a population which prior to the 
War, they told us, was around eight hundred. As 
they plodded to and from their fields night and morn- 
ing they seemed so buoyant, so care free. After living 
with them longer, however, we noticed the absence of 
young men and women — they were serving their 
country, the boys in the Army and the girls in the 
great munitions factories and industrial establish- 
ments of France. 

Despite the difference in language, we came to 
know and love these peasant people who in their 
simplicity seemed to connect the Medieval with the 
Modern. And they welcomed the Americans with 
genuine pleasure and with heart-deep gratefulness for 
we had arrived in the area just after the brilliant 
American victory at Chateau-Thierry — with the same 
gratefulness, indeed, that the struggling Colonials 
must have welcomed the Cavaliers of Lafayette 
during the dark days of the American Revolution. 
They took us into their homes as members of the 
family and never grew tired of hearing us tell in our 
"penible" French of the great country of the New 
World which to them seemed the land of enchantment. 

Although these were essentially farming communi- 
ties, the people did not live on their farms which were 
located adjacent to the village. Each morning as we 
tumbled out of our billets to the tune of " 1 can't get 
'em up, 1 can't get 'em up, 1 can't get 'em up in the 
morning," to take our places in formation on the 



street, the farmers driving their high-wheeled, ox- 
drawn, lumbering carts would parade down the road 
in front of the assembled companies with the dignity 
of the Regimental Drum Major leading the band when 
"sounding off" at guard mount. Usually the oxen 
were hitched in single file to the cart; sometimes the 
combination consisted of a horse and an ox. A large 
part of the farming was done by the women and chil- 
dren. Indeed, it was not an uncommon sight to see a 
woman cutting grain with a cradle scythe, her small 
son standing dangerously near removing the grain 
from the cradle as it swept by him and placing it in 
neat windrows. Until late in the evening they toiled 
and just as twilight was waning, they plodded back 
to their homes, the noise of their wooden sabots, and 
the tinkling of the bells around the necks of the 
animals resounding through the darkening streets of 
the village. These are typical of the women of 
France — patient in their hardships, brave in grief, 
religiously loyal to the land of their birth. 

Bathtubs were as scarce in these villages as eggs. 
At Camp Lewis we had been accustomed to taking a 
splash under the showers at will but in France we 
awoke to the disheartening realization that French 
people use but little water — not even for drinking 
purposes! One soldier was quite dumfounded when 
told by his Madame that she had not taken a bath in 
five years. Whereupon he deduced one reason, at 
least, for the universal use of highly scented perfumes 
on the part of the French people. The organizations 
stationed at Bourdons and Forcey were fortunate in 
having a stream nearby; a stream which in the United 
States would have been called a "crick" but in France, 
where there are but few large streams — it was dignified 



^H by being classed as a river. Even the famous Mame, 
^B Meuse, and Scheldt rivers which we later saw are 
^H merely overgrown creeks. The organizations at 
^H Miilieres and Longchamp did not have access to a 
^^ stream and water had to be hauled long distances for 

cooking purposes and whole companies marched to 

Forcey for a dip in the "river." 

I The only thing which might have been used for a 

bathtub in these little villages but, sadly enough, was 
not, was the ever-present washing place — a concrete 
basin the size of a small swimming pool. Here we 
would see the women of the village, young and old, 
kneeling on the hard concrete floor, industriously 
rubbing garments on a smooth slab which lined the 
edge of the basin. Soap was a rare article and cold 
water made cleansing difficult. But these handicaps 
were of no moment. They would scrub from morning 
until night always talking and laughing in their en- 
gaging French way. The washing place probably 
represents in French rural life what the "quilting 
bee" and corn-husking parties represent in American 
farm life — a clearing house for the latest village gossip, 
a center where the social and the industrial are 

Always in France we had to be careful about drink- 
ing water. After feeling the pangs caused by imbibing 
too freely of "undoctored" water we were ready to 
agree with Captain Sheppard when he said, "The 
French we see using it are only the survivors!" 

France brought another innovation to our military 
career, the Town Major — that dignitary who stood 
as a buffer between the military and the native popu- 
lation. To him came delegations, headed usually by 
the village iVlayor, with claims for damages to prop- 


erty, real or imagined. These claims ranged all the 
way from a broken window to the surreptitious milk- 
ing of a farmer's cow which had browsed too close to 
one of the "Officers, i; Hommes, 20; Chevaux, 2" 
domiciles. It was the Town Major who ruthlessly 
clogged the channels of commerce by closing vin 
shops which sold unauthorized beverages such as 
cognac or which remained open after the prescribed 
hours. It was he, furthermore, who sent forth the 
General Headquarters' injunction that troops should 
not embarrass or annoy the old Town Crier, who, 
dressed in his antique uniform resplendent with red 
cord and brass buttons and beating on an equally 
antique drum, daily hobbled through the little streets 
crying forth the news of the world outside. The Town 
Crier is as much of an established institution in France 
as a daily newspaper is in America. His news covers 
many and divers subjects. At that time much of the 
information was about the war but he also reported 
market quotations and local happenings. The war, 
at that time, had ceased to arouse the village popula- 
tion; after four years of it, the people had accepted it 
as a matter of fact and it required something of a 
startling nature to awaken their interest. But if the 
price of eggs had dropped ten centimes per dozen or 
the Town Major had announced that he would receive 
claims, the windows and doors of each little house 
would be filled by the figures of interested and excited 
auditors. It was a quaint reminder of the early days 
of our own Republic, as we grouped around him in 
late July and gathered the fragmentary details of the 
American counter-offensive on the Marne; instinc- 
tively we called to mind the joyful news which was 
brought to the Quaker-folk of Philadelphia on a mid- 


night of 1 78 1 — "Twelve o'clock and York town is 

1 1 was the provincialism of these people which made 
us feel as if we had suddenly found ourselves living in 
another, an earlier, age; away from the confusion of 
our everyday American life; away from the clanging 
of industry and the rush of commercialism; away 
from the top-speed pace characteristic of America and 
Americans. We had pierced the veneer of civiliza- 
tion and had struck the "hard pan" of life. 

The French language always reared itself as a 
barrier to our better acquaintanceship with the 
friendly farmers. We started out with bonjour and 
by slow stages enlarged our vocabulary to include 
such necessary words and expressions as ceufs, out, fini, 
vin blanc, toute de suite, merci, ziiZ^if beaucoup, si'l 
vaus plait, comme ca, and au revoir. The few men in 
the regiment who had been so far-sighted in school and 
college as to foresee that the Great War was going 
to occur, that America would be involved, and that 
they would be "over there," and had, as a consequence, 
acquired a knowledge of French, suddenly found 
themselves very much-feted, honored, and envied 
individuals. Whenever the Mayor of the village gave 
a party in honor of the Americans, which always meant 
the bringing forth of aged beverages, it was these 
individuals who, ex officio, secured the coveted places 
at the festive board. A certain officer of the regiment 
who at Camp Lewis made a specialty of grenades and 
who was brought into daily contact with the officers 
of the French mission there, won his way into the 
hearts of the charming little demoiselles at Millieres 
by telling them they were "toot sweet." Another 
soldier quite embarrassed a French lady who, trun- 



dling an urchin in a little go-cart behind her, was 
returning one Sunday morning from church services, 
by greeting her with a " Bonjour, mademoiselle." 
Like Mark Twain, we soon envied the French children 
their ability to speak French. It is a tantalizing 
language; the words are not spelled as they are pro- 
nounced and even the Frenchmen, to make themselves 
understood, have to supplement their conversation 
by shrugs of the shoulders and gestures. fVe had to 
depend entirely upon gestures the first few days. One 
doughboy from Company "C," wishing to satisfy his 
craving for eggs, approached a French madame in 
whose door-yard he saw some hens. He first tried to 
make her understand his English but she could not 
compree. He could not parley hers so he did the next 
best thing. He imitated a chicken sitting on her nest 
and getting off cackling after laying an egg. Then he 
asked her, "compree"? "Out, oui," she said. He got 
the eggs. One soldier from the Supply Company going 
into a shop one day noticed a can on the shelf labeled 
"Conserves" and thinking it was preserved fruit he, 
after much pointing, bought the can, which he in- 
tended taking along on a hike the following day. 
"Conserves" turned out to be a French version of 
that American delicacy " Bully Beef." It lies "some- 
where in France" untasted and unsung. Another 
man from Company "F" purchased a can of French 
fly-paper under the impression that it was delicious 

Those first days in France were busy ones for luck- 
less lieutenants. All letters were subject to the strict- 
est censorship, but that fact did not deter voluminous 
epistles from pouring into the hands of these officers 
for censorship, who in turn would pour them into the 



postal channels for transport to the folks at home. 
Each had to be read, signed, and sealed. After the 
censor had finished clipping out all unauthorized 
information, the letters looked as though a child 
armed with a pair of scissors had been amusing itself 
by cutting paper dolls out of them. A sentence which 
started out interestingly with "the chow is rotten" 

would end up with "the chow is " followed by 

a mysterious blank, which the folks at home would 
naturally assume stood for "excellent" and conclude 
that their John had acquired that charming French 
modesty. Love letters were apt to be stilted at first 
but after the writers received (uncensored) answers 
from their girls at home, the sentiment changed from 
the " beautiful weather" to the afflictions of the heart. 
One soldier from Company "I" writing to his girl 
after a series of hikes, told her that when he got home 
he would never ride anywhere but would always walk. 
"Why, do you know," he wrote, "that's all we do 
over here— hike, and then hike some more. If I ever 
meet you on the road back in the States, you in your 
car and i on foot, and you ask me to get in and ride, 
I'll reply, 'No thank you, I'm late now.'" Another 
lad from Company "K" always started his letters 
with, " Dear Mother and Father and Katie and Little 
Willie," and if the paper was wide enough, he was 
very likely to start at the trunk of the family tree and 
follow it out to the topmost branches, even unto the 
tiniest twig. Many soldiers, trying to impart the in- 
formation as to the boat upon which they had crossed 
the Atlantic (the Olympic), would "conceal" her 
identity by characterizing her as " the sister ship of the 
Tiiantic or "the second largest boat afloat." Of 
course if that aforementioned luckless Lieutenant 


could not see through the camouflage it was beyond 
the power of a German to penetrate it, but the people 
at home — they always understood! There was the 
same bravery in those letters that was later demon- 
strated so conspicuously in the forests of the Argonne 
or on the fields of Flanders. " Don't worry about me, 
I never felt better in my life" would be written to 
mothers at home by sons who were sleeping in dark 
stables among the cooties and cows. 

Our life in the training area was not wholly devoid 
of diversions. We went boar hunting with our French 
friends with varying success. A few even angled in 
the "river" usually coming back with a — good story! 
Some of the enthusiastic showmen of the regiment 
built open-air theaters in the area and staged shows 
which featured everything from a strong man to a 
Hula Hula dance. Some of the most interested spec- 
tators were the French who crowded into the theater 
to witness the performance. The fact that they could 
not understand English did not seem to detract from 
their enjoyment of the program. The band was 
worked overtime in providing good music for us. 

The greatest event in our life there and, in fact, 
during our whole stay in France and Belgium, was 
the arrival of mail from the States. We were hungry 
for news of home and loved ones. We had come to 
France because we had a big job to do and when it 
was done we would return to our homes in the West. 
We lived and worked in the present; but our thoughts 
were of the future — of home. And our letters con- 
nected us with the thing we longed for most — home. 

For six weeks we remained in that area undergoing 
the most intensive training which comprised every- 
thing from the "aeroplane" salute to night marches 


and maneuvers. The aeroplane salute consisted of 
sharply tilting the head backwards as if studying 
astronomical phenomena such as Boche 'planes or 
Generals' stars, followed by a whip of the right hand, 
the latter movement usually bringing your thumb 
into intimate relation either with your eye or the 
end of your nose, depending upon your proficiency. 
Many were the "battles" which raged across the 
plowed fields and in the woods which up to that time 
had known of no occupants other than the wild boars 
and the French huntsmen who, after attending church 
on Sundays, would arm themselves with muskets their 
fathers had carried in 1870 and sally forth in search 
of their prized quarry. After the "battle" would 
ensue a conference which usually turned the victory 
into defeat, and instead of giving credit for our " val- 
iant advance" against a "stubborn" enemy, it would 
concern itself with such delightful allusions as " Blois," 
"S. O. S.," "Liaison," and other equally "charming" 
expressions ! 

We learned to express time on the basis of twenty- 
four hours rather than twelve, although it took some 
mental calculation at first to decipher what was meant 
by an order to "move forward at fifteen o'clock." At 
first we were also puzzled when asked, "Where is 
Regimental P. C?" "P. C" turned out to be the 
abbreviation for "Post of Command" and soon be- 
came such a necessary part of our vocabulary that we 
applied it to our billets and pup tents. Eventually, 
in regimental parlance, wherever we were located, 
whether in a shell-hole or trench, in the front line or 
in an "elephant" house in Belgium, that was our 
P. C. Our army in France used the Metric System 
and it was not long before we were using kilo- 


meters and meters with as much facility as miles 
and yards. 

After many hikes in full equipment and after a 
number of brushes with a "simulated" enemy, we 
became desperately anxious to clash with the real 
Hun. Few of us realized during those dog days of 
August that a month would bring us the realization 
of our hope; that it would find us battling through the 
forests of the Argonne; that many of the stars on the 
service flags hanging in the windows of the folks at 
home, which then gleamed forth in their silvery white- 
ness would, with the leaves of autumn, turn to gold! 
We did not think about those things — those even- 
tualities, during those days of August. We had gone 
into the army to fight; we had trained for a year to 
fight efficiently; we wanted to put our training to the 
test. We wanted to fight because fighting was our 
business until every German was in Germany and 
liberty was secured to the world for all time to come. 



ONE question was always uppermost in our 
army experiences, "Where do we go from 
here?" We were quite sure we had an answer 
to that question when word came about the first of 
September that we were to move. For it could be to 
no other place than to a quiet sector (near Belfort, 
rumor had it), there to receive our final training by a 
few weeks' turn in the trenches. Events were to show 
how widely our guesses missed the mark. 

Orders were to march forth on September third 
with full packs, and we had hardly had time to say 
good-by to the villages which in five weeks had become 
next thing to home to us when we began to realize 
that the emphasis in the order was upon the word 
full. At least this was the decided opinion of such 
men as Private Jones who tipped the scale at 105 
pounds and carried a pack weighing 85 pounds. As 
we trudged through an adjoining town and some 
curious soldier from another regiment yelled, " What 
outfit?" immediately some doughboy replied, "Supply 
Train!" One Corporal of Company "D" remarked 
that he had always heard that army life would make 
a man of him but he was sure, now, that it would 
make a mule of him. But much gameness was dis- 
played and even the company tailor, who had tucked 



away a couple of pressing irons in his pack and ap- 
peared to be packing everything but the kitchen 
range, made the grade and came thumping into Man- 
dres with his battalion. After remaining in this new 
area for three days, the regiment proceeded by march- 
ing to the entraining point, a town named Rolampont 
on the Marne River, southeast of Chaumont. Here 
the regiment pitched its pup tents for the night in a 
field adjacent to the railroad. Several of the more 
industrious men of the regiment enticed a wild boar 
(recently tamed) from the vicinity of the village out 
towards the camp. On reaching the outer fringe of 
pup tents, the animal became frightened and charged 
straight through the Third Battalion area. Imme- 
diately the boys gave chase. The boar dodged and 
turned but upon rushing Company "K's" field 
kitchen a doughty K. P. grasped an axe and met him 
square on, after another man had fruitlessly dis- 
charged his forty-five at him. The result was that 
Company " K" dined on wild-boar meat that evening 
and undoubtedly Uncle Sam paid the bill because 
French people were unusually proficient in putting in 
claims to the Town Major for losses sustained. 

We entrained September 7th in our old " 40 Hommes, 
8 Chevaux" friends and steered northwest. Our 
machine guns were fitted on flat cars for anti-aircraft 
purposes. These were provided for each train, adding 
a warlike touch to the journey. But it was made 
without incident and, after several hours' run, we 
found ourselves in the town of Gondrecourt where we 
detrained. From that moment the hardships of war 

There was nothing resembling cheering when we 
found we were to leave a good town and march six 


miles in the darkness and rain to find beds in a dripping 
forest. But like everything else, we did it, although 
not much sleep was registered that first night in the 
woods of Amanty. 

When orders were issued the next morning that 
during our stay in this vicinity we were to keep in the 
woods as much as possible to avoid hostile observa- 
tion, we realized that something was in the air besides 
aeroplanes. And there were plenty of the latter for 
we were encamped near an American aviation field. 
Some of the aviators threw out numerous hints about 
a coming drive in the Toul sector. Pitching our pup 
tents among the trees upon the hillside, we waited in 
the mud and rain for three days, continuing our tech- 
nical training in a limited fashion. 

At seven o'clock in the evening of September loth, 
the regiment began a night march in a northerly direc- 
tion. Unknown to us at the time, our Division was 
one of many that were concentrating by night for the 
St. Mihiel drive. That march was about thirteen 
miles long and landed us at three in the morning on 
another muddy hillside, covered with trees, among 
which a place to sleep had to be searched out in the 
darkness, for no lights were permitted. The supply 
train had to be in place and everything camouflaged 
before morning broke. A solitary and deserted church 
furnished shelter for some of the officers. 

September nth was spent in modest retirement 
among the trees. The only entertainment consisted 
of watching the aeroplanes, of which there appeared 
to be hundreds circling above us. In fact, there was 
an unusually heavy concentration of Allied 'planes 
ordered for the St. Mihiel battle. 

At one o'clock in the morning of September 12th, 



we were slartled out of our sleep by a thunderous 
roar. "They're off!" said someone. The attack of 
which we had heard so many rumors was beginning. 
The barrage was on! The First American Army was 
beginning its first offensive. 

The sight and sound of the tremendous artillery 
preparation was awe-inspiring. The sky was fitfully 
lit with flashes like the play of incessant heat-lightning 
on a summer night, A deep, rumbling roar filled 
our ears, accentuated almost constantly by great 
crashes as the heavies belched forth their load of 
death, seeming to shake the very earth. The con- 
tinuous play of sound reminded us of a hundred fierce 
thunderstorms rolled into one, and the fiery, flaming 
sky gave the impression of a world on fire. 

At five o'clock the barrage lifted and thousands of 
doughboys scrambled over the top, causing volleys 
of rockets of various colors to be shot heavenward as 
S, O. S. signals from the Boche line. The First Ameri- 
can Army was on its way for the first time and the 
Germans in its path were calling for help. 

In the early morning, our divisional commander, 
Major General William H. Johnston, informed us of 
the plan and scope of the battle. We were in reserve, 
ready to be thrown into the flaming cauldron at any 
moment. He told us that General Pershing's message 
to the Division was that, even though we never fired 
a shot, we would have contributed to the victory. 

By noon we were on the road marching to the 
near-by town of Pagny-sur-Meuse where we lay over- 
night with a tremendous number of French motor 
trucks ready at a moment's notice to convey us to 
any part of the front. The gun-fire had apparently 
died down by evening but from a neighboring hilltop 


could be seen red glows to the northeast, indicating 
burning buildings or supplies, with the occasional 
flash of distant star-shells. 

Prisoners had begun to arrive in the morning and 
soon the huge prison cage nearby was teeming with 
captured Huns. Some of the German officers had 
evidently come to stay for they had their suit-cases 
along with them. To hear one Boche officer of high 
rank denouncing the other officers and men for being 
captured would lead one to think that he had over- 
looked the little fact that he himself had landed in 
the American net. Company "E" was detailed as 
prison guard, remaining as such until the opening of 
the Argonne offensive. The only difficulty the com- 
pany experienced was in handling the jam intended 
for the prisoners! 

An order came, the afternoon of September 13th, 
to board the convoy of motor trucks or camions at 
7.30 P.M. Twenty doughboys clambered into each 
truck and by nine o'clock we were on our way, bounc- 
ing around on an all-night Joy-ride to no one knew 
where. Stories and songs enlivened the early hours 
of the night and helped to keep our minds off the sore 
spots of our anatomy, but before the night was over 
many of us wished we were hiking instead of riding. 

Morning dawned upon a strange countryside. 
Many miles away to the east, silhouetted against the 
dawn, appeared tiny puffs in the air, and we knew 
that some early morning aeroplane was being fired 
upon. To our surprise, the villages we were passing 
through bore marks of violent destruction of not very 
recent date. 

When we finally clambered stiffly down from our 
board benches at 7.30 a.m., we learned that we were 


in the village of Villotte, northeast of Bar-le-Duc. 
The towns in this vicinity had been destroyed by the 
retreating Germans after their defeat at the Marne 
in 19 14. A number of graves, both French and Ger- 
man, dotted the countryside. Here we saw for the 
first time that about which we had read so much — 
Hun atrocities. A little boy had both hands cut off 
at the wrists by the brutal invaders and a young girl 
had been mistreated. 

The regiment was billeted in three villages. Aero- 
planes were passing almost continuously overhead. 
Orders were issued to stand still whenever a 'plane 
was seen approaching. Buglers were stationed to give 
the alarm and guards were placed to enforce the order. 
This meant two things. In the first place, it meant 
that our presence in that area was to be kept secret 
from the Huns for a reason to be readily made the 
subject of numerous army rumors. In the second 
place, it meant that a trip from one end of the village 
to the other was a feat to make one pause — in fact a 
sojourner found himself pausing rather than moving 
most of the time. 

But aviators cannot see at night, so night operations 
were the order of the day. But the High Command 
probably thought that a little maneuvering around 
over the moonlit hills was hardly strenuous enough. 
For on the evening of September i6th, our faces were 
turned northward and we were started on a march 
that was a march. 

After an active day, we saddled on our mule-packs 
and pounded the white, macadamized French roads, 
for practically seventeen miles. In front of us and to 
our left, a violent artillery duel raged until midnight. 
Overhead, night-flying 'planes hummed. But we 


fought not against the Hun that night but against 
the unseen enemies, sleepiness and exhaustion. After 
midnight one doughboy was seen to be sick but refused 
all assistance from his Lieutenant saying, "Not only 
will I carry my own pack but I'll be there when you 
arrive. " He was seen to be violently ill a second time 
but was on hand at the finish, even as he had promised. 
The bravery of the commonplace was just as truly 
heroic as the bravery of the battlefield. 

After finally arriving at the appointed place — r 
woods containing numerous shell-holes of the 1914 
battles — our task was to get wagons, horses, and men 
safely under cover before daylight. Jupiter Pluvius 
joined in with a little cheer in the form of a copious 
rain which drenched us in fine fashion. But we were 
under the protecting leaves by daylight and attempt- 
ing to make up lost quantities of "shut-eye." Cook- 
ing and serving meals without revealing the fact to a 
hostile aeroplane by smoke from the fire or by the 
famous chow line proved to be some little trick. A 
scarcity of water greatly aggravated our difficulties 
in this area. 

That evening we were on the march again by the 
time darkness fell, first being treated to our initial 
glimpse of an aeroplane falling in flames. At the town 
of Froidos, we filled our canteens and continued in a 
northerly direction. Ahead of us, the same variety 
of signal rockets which we had seen the night before 
continued to rise in a slanting direction into the air 
at stated intervals, and toward eleven o'clock the big 
guns opened up a terrific chorus to the northwest. 

The moon afforded light enough that night to out- 
line the deserted ruins of the once beautiful town of 
Clermont-en-Argonne, headquarters for the German 


Crown Prince in 19 14, and wantonly burned upon his 
retreat and since then within range of his guns. 
Passing through its desolate streets, we turned off 
the Clermont-Neuvilly highway and took a side-road 
to the right leading north to the ruined town of Aubre- 
ville. Soon we found ourselves passing rows of barbed 
wire, trenches, camouflaged gun emplacements, and 
fresh shell-holes. Our goal was an orchard threaded 
with trenches on a hill above the ruins of the small 
village of Courcelles. Here, oblivious to possible 
shell-fire, we pitched our pup tents and went to sleep. 
A few shells came whizzing over the next morning 
but it was not these but rather the replies from the 
nearby French batteries which convinced a few that 
it was time to take to the trenches. Not many days 
hence we were to be veterans in the matter of shell- 
fire, but at this time we were unversed in the difference 
between an "arrival" and a "departure." 

That afternoon about five o'clock, a large German 
observation 'plane came over our lines and we craned 
our necks to watch the explosions of Allied shells 
about him. When one would come particularly close, 
we would cheer, but no shells touched him nor did 
they even serve to drive him back. He was an ob- 
stinate fellow. Suddenly the falling of a shell frag- 
ment in a near-by tree reminded us that "what goes 
up must come down." But being disappointed in the 
work of our anti-aircraft guns, hope rose afresh when 
we espied three small, fast "chasers" like specks 
among the clouds, evidently returning from the Ger- 
man lines. But apparently only one had ammunition 
left, for the other two continued on and this one which 
did turn aside to fight the Boche fired only a few 
rounds before he, too, headed for home after the 




Others. At least he succeeded in turning the German 
back who, after running another gauntlet of shell- 
fire, hurried home to report that he saw more curious 
upturned faces around Courcelles than had ever 
been seen in that vicinity before. 

We were ordered to march up to the Forest of Hesse 
on the evening of September 20th. The hike was only 
some three and one half miles long but it was our 
most exciting up to that time. As we waited on the 
road for the order to march, we could hear the shells 
whistle over our heads and burst beyond us. Some 
shells fell near the column as we began to move 
forward and the adjacent French batteries replied. 
Orders were given to put on our gas masks, but some 
of us had our minds more on a near-by ammunition 
dump, which might have been struck at any moment 
with disastrous effects, than upon any gas that might 
have been sent over. The order, " No Gas," was given 
and our long column proceeded up the road, the men 
seemingly oblivious to the occasional shells aimed in 
our direction. The road upon which we were march- 
ing was for the most part hidden from direct observa- 
tion by a ridge covered with trees, but at one place 
the moonlight revealed to us a high belt of twig-fiiled 
wire netting stretched across an open space to hide 
the traffic on the road. 

Stealthily we made our way into the forest at the 
designated places, being cautioned to preserve silence 
and to take great pains to camouflage ourselves 
against aerial observation on the morrow. A brief 
survey of our new home in the moonlight revealed the 
following facts; the wood had been heavily shelled 
probably during the gigantic Verdun offensive and 
was full of shell-holes; trenches crisscrossed it and 


barbed wire was strung profusely; permanent gun 
emplacements were fitted with 75's, the gun crews 
sleeping in adjacent dugouts. But of greatest in- 
terest to us were huge, newly installed guns both of 
the long naval variety and the short, heavy howitzer 
type. A small railway such as was so commonly 
used in the Great War was the route over which 
these monsters had been brought and over which 
great stores of ammunition were now being conveyed. 
Netting with grasses entwined was used to camouflage 
both the guns and the track leading to them. During 
the night a few "iron rations" were sent over by 
enemy batteries and our near-by friends coughed back 
in violent retaliation. 

Our job now was simply to rest in leafy seclusion 
until "D" day, the day of the attack which later 
proved to be September 26th. This meant nearly a 
week among the shattered trees and the shell-holes, 
cooking and eating our food by stealth and dodging 
under cover at the first approach of an aeroplane, 
either Allied or German. 

The doughboys grumbled some because they had 
to preserve silence, while the ever-present " Missouri 
canaries" could sound off whenever they pleased. 
But there is another side to this story. Food supplies 
were sometimes short, so that there were no " seconds" 
and very little "firsts." One day the enterprising 
men who preside over the destinies of " B " Company's 
"chow" discovered that the Supply Company mules 
had the men backed off the map when it came to 
"eats." So they proceeded to make nightly raids on 
the poor mules' bran. It made excellent breakfast 
food, and when the supply was a little short, a little 
sawdust helped to fill out. So " B " Company lived 


high during the day, but slept little at night. The 
wronged "canaries" were good publicity agents, and 
the woes of muledom were sounded forth throughout 
the night in hair-raising and mournful brays. Every 
time a doughboy would be awakened by a fresh out- 
burst he would roll over and say, "the cooks have 
stolen his bran again." 

Wonderful skill was manifested by the men in 
building bowers of leafy branches about their pup 
tents, kitchens, and wagons. Fires could not be 
lighted until daylight and smokeless wood was eagerly 
sought after. So well did our efforts in the art of 
camouflaging succeed that the French artillery com- 
mander congratulated us and said that never during 
the war had he seen such adeptness in screening a 

Those were days long to be remembered. All knew 
that a big battle was ahead. All spare change was 
given into the hands of the Y. M. C. A. representa- 
tives to be sent home and neglected correspondence 
was attended to — especially the " in case " letters. We 
put our house in order against the morrow. 

But no outward evidence of inner feelings was to be 
noted on the faces of any. We led a perfectly normal 
life, grumbling at the cook and taking great interest 
in the numerous anti-aircraft bombardments. The 
Germans made use of high explosive shells giving off 
a black smoke, while the French used both high ex- 
plosive and shrapnel, the latter bursting in white 
puffs. Only once did we observe a hit and that was 
when a piece of German H. E. tore a small section 
from an Allied 'plane but failed to bring it to earth. 

All night long the roads were crowded with traffic — 
guns, ammunition, men, and all that goes to make 



up a huge concentration for an offensive. The Ger- 
man batteries opposite us worked leisurely but withal 
methodically. During the night especially could we 
hear the roar of the distant guns followed soon by the 
whine of the approaching shells and the crack of 
their explosions. The sharp-spoken little 75's would 
reply in ear-splitting tones and then settle into si- 
lence. Never once did one of the heavies reveal its 
presence in the forest by trying to hush the hostile 
barking. These great guns, hurried over from the St. 
Mihiel drive, were to come into their own on "D"day. 
During their enforced inactivity they gave the im- 
pression of great hounds straining at the leash. 

If the Boche had only known of our concentration, 
it would have afforded an opportunity for casualties 
inflicted by high explosive and mustard gas that 
would have glutted even his devilish appetite. Of 
course precautionary measures were taken and many 
false gas alarms awakened us from our slumbers on the 
ground. A whiff of gasoline from a passing truck or a 
tinge of sulphur in the air from H. E. was enough to 
set off the gas alarm in a paroxysm of warning. The 
guards, new to their tasks, and with the responsibility 
of a regiment on their shoulders, were taking no 
chances! In a document later captured from the 
Germans it was stated that Americans were believed 
to be in the woods because of the frequent gas alarms. 

At about five o'clock on the morning of September 
25th, we were awakened by a roar. All the German 
guns in front of us seemed to have opened simultane- 
ously. But it proved to be only a raid in force against 
the lines to our left front. A box barrage was put 
down by the Germans on the front-line section to be 
raided and then a continuous fire was kept up in the 


hal 1 


rear to keep reinforcements from arriving. This rear- 
line shelling just touched our area, and while shells 
were continually exploding nearby, the only casualty 
registered was a hole in one pup tent. The purpose 
of the raid, the capture of prisoners, was frustrated. 
Orders had been issued that no American allow himself 
to be taken prisoner; that it would be one's duty to 
take one's life rather than to be taken prisoner. The 
spirit of this and similar orders was carried out so 
effectively, by the maintenance of secrecy, that it 
constitutes a splendid tribute to the esprit de corps 
of the regiment. 

By September 25 th, everything appeared to be in 
readiness for the big drive. The French artillerymen 
had accumulated large supplies of ammunition for 
their heavy guns. Numerous batteries of Americans 
had brought their French 1 50's both of the high velocity 
and howitzer type into position. A central shell 
dump had been established and all sorts of supplies 

On that last day in the forest our signal rockets 
arrived and were distributed, sag paste was vigorously 
rubbed on vital spots against mustard gas burns, and 
the aviator attached to our regiment explained the 
signals to be used between himself and the infantry. 
Companies "C" and "L," which had been detailed 
for the work of unloading shells at the railhead, had 
rejoined the regiment and we were all on our toes for 
the big event ahead. 



THE 25 th of September found the regiment 
peculiarly buoyant. An atmosphere of sup- 
pressed excitement and enthusiasm pervaded 
the camp which was only heightened by the heavy 
barrage which had awakened us in the early morning. 
Colonel Weeks, anticipating a German bombardment 
of the woods, had ordered the men to stand to. They 
rolled out of their beds, such as they were, pulled on 
their shoes and wrapped their spirals, at the same time 
engaging in a continuous repartee with their bunkies. 
"Well, Jack, here's our chance at the Hun. I'll bet 
you a good American dollar to a measly franc, 
that I'll get more of the 'birds' than you do," — ^all 
this in an enthusiastic but necessarily cautious 
voice. These men wanted a fight. Their long weeks 
of marching by night over treacherous roads with 
heavy packs had not lowered their morale, but rather 
had made them more incensed against the Germans 
who had brought on the whole world catastrophe 
and they were more determined than ever to put an 
end to it. 

During the day everyone was busy getting his 
equipment straightened out. Each man polished and 
cleaned his Enfield as he had never done before at one 
of the grilling inspections at Camp Lewis. Our Vickers 



machine guns and our one-pounders received like 

That day several parties were sent up to the French 
trenches to observe the front over which we were to 
battle the next day. Each member of these parties 
disguised his identity by wearing a French helmet and 
overcoat. The Germans must not learn that American 
troops were concentrated in force on that front. In 
this we were disappointed, as a German Intelligence 
Summary captured during the battle revealed the 
fact that a German aviator had observed American 
troops marching from Aubreville to the Forest of 
Hesse. This summary set forth in detail the number 
of troops and vehicles and ended up with the warning, 
" Beware of the Americans!" 

Assume that you, the reader, are accompanying a 
party on one of these trips to the front line. Each of 
us borrows an overcoat and helmet from the obliging 
French artillerymen, little mattering if the coat is too 
small and the helmet too large. We go to Brigade 
P. C. and obtain written authority from General 
Foltz which will take us through the line of outguards 
in rear of the trenches, established by the 363d Infan- 
try, We enter the Boyou Hallouin, a communication 
trench which will take us through to Mount des 
Allieux. That trench brings home to us the tremen- 
dousness of the tragic drama in which we are soon to 
play an active role. For three quarters of a mile it 
has been dug over hills and across valleys. We walk 
on duck boards, the surface of the ground a foot above 
our heads. Other trenches are tributary to this; were 
it not that Boyou Hallouin had been dug deeper than 
the others, and is copiously adorned with signs (a 
French habit which we had cause more than once to 



be thankful for), we would be lost in the labyrinth 

of trenches. After much zigzagging, we finally ar- 
rive at Mount des Allieux. We expect to find guns 
bristling from the parapet and artillery roaring de- 
fiantly. Instead, we see a group of poilus, in their 
shirt-sleeves, playing with a dog, or shaving, or writ- 
ing letters. We go into the dugout of Lieutenant 
Gatharrch, commanding the small French garrison. He 
steps out of his office and welcomes us in. His shoes 
are shined and his uniform appears as if it had been 
pressed that morning. We take seats in the office and 
survey the interior of the dugout. It is made of solid 
concrete. Adjoining is the Lieutenant's living quar- 
ters. In one corner is a comfortable-looking bed, in 
another a dresser. The dugout is lighted by elec- 
tricity, heated by a glowing fireplace, and on the wall 
hangs a full-length mirror! 

"So this is war?" we ask ourselves. The French 
had held this line since 1915 and except for an occa- 
sional raid or night patrol, there was but little activity. 
In fact troops had been sent here to rest after hard 
fighting elsewhere on the front. But the densely 
populated graveyards, of which there were several 
near by, shows that even a quiet sector is not proof 
against H. E.'s and bullets. 

After enjoying a cup of tea which the Lieutenant 
brings forth from the little kitchen, we bid him "Au 
revoir" and follow a guide across country to Cigalerie 
Butte which rears its stony height above the other 
hills in the immediate region. In our poor French we 
ask the guide a question, "Please ask me in English, 
I can understand you better," he replies. We learn 
that he had been a waiter, for a number of years, in 
the Waldorf-Astoria, New York.

Reaching Cigalerie Butte, which the boys later 
nicknamed "Cigarette Butt," we are ushered into a 
subterranean room — an observation post, The French 
Sergeant invites us to look through the telescope. 
Through it we get our first glimpse of No Man's Land 
and the woods and fields beyond over which we will 
attack the next day. 

Below us, five hundred yards away, are the French 
front-line trenches — long gashes in the earth which 
stretch away, east and west, until lost from view. 
They appear to be abandoned and, in fact, were held 
by a comparatively small force during the daytime. 
Five hundred yards across the valley, across No 
Man's Land, from the French trenches, at the edge 
of Cheppy Woods, are those of the Germans. Both 
are reinforced by lanes of barbed wire. We scan the 
German lines to detect any activity — they appear 
to be lifeless. Not even a spadeful of earth is thrown 
over the parapet or a rifle discharged. Beyond these 
lines are the Cheppy Woods, thick with underbrush. 
At the northwest corner of these woods we see the 
ruins of the La Neuve Grange farm. To the west of 
the farm is the town of Cheppy which, although 
a mile and a half away from us, we can see has 
been the target for those death-dealing, destructive 

"We will not have any trouble here," we think. 
But we reckon without our hosts. We did not then 
fully appreciate those rows upon rows of barbed wire 
in front of both the French and German trenches, the 
density and defenses of Cheppy Woods, the stub- 
bornness of the small German garrison which occu- 
pied the woods. The Germans, we learned later, had 
not secured information of our attack in sufficient 


time to bring up more troops to reinforce their thinly 
held line. 

We return to the Forest of Hesse. Tents have been 
struck, blankets rolled and labeled, reserve rations 
issued. All work methodically though our hearts 
beat faster with the knowledge that the curtain is 
about to rise for the big show. Division and brigade 
orders arrive at four-thirty in the afternoon. "D" 
day, we learn verbally, is to be the twenty-sixth and 
" H " hour five-thirty in the morning. 

At eight-twenty in the evening the regiment was 
on the march from the Forest of Hesse to its posi- 
tion on Cigalerie Butte and Mount des Allieux. Our 
brigade, the i82d, marched silently up on the single 
road under the cover of providential darkness. The 
road was jammed with troops, machine-gun carts, 
and vehicles of all kinds. It required four hours of 
alternate marching and halting to reach our position. 
The Germans threw over a few shells, mostly gas, 
which caused only a single casualty. At midnight 
the regiment was in position on Cigalerie Butte and 
Mount des Allieux, waiting for " H " hour. Would it 
ever come? 

The mighty bombardment began at two-thirty 
o'clock the morning of September 26th. On a front 
of twenty miles, the guns of the First American 
Army belched forth their thousands of projectiles, 
many of which we could hear whining directly over 
our heads. As we stood on Mount des Allieux or 
Cigalerie Butte, watching the flashes of the guns 
which had been concentrated by the hundreds in our 
rear, hearing the pandemonium of noise which ranged 
from the sharp bark of the gallant little 75's to the 
deep-throated bays of the heavies, we were fascinated. 


spellbound. The earth shook under the intensity of 
the bombardment; the skies were colored a deep, dull 
red by the flashes which poured from the muzzles of 
those guns. It was hard for us to realize that even 
this was war; it seemed like a gigantic pyrotechnic 
display, a mammoth Fourth of July celebration. 

The bombardment continued, unabated in fury. 
The night wore on. "H" hour slowly drew near. 
Each man's face bore a peculiar expression of deter- 
mination. We had never been under fire before. All 
of us were curious to know how we would act. Sud- 
denly some German shells fell among us, wounding a 
number. But the rest only gritted their teeth and 
waited for their chance to avenge their comrades. 

The orchestra of artillery had played the prelude; 
five-thirty came and the curtain went up on the show 
whose first scene was laid near invincible Verdun, the 
last scene at Sedan ; a show which lasted a month and 
a half; played by a cast which according to the Stars 
and Stripes, the official A. E. F. weekly, "had the 
hardest job that had been assigned to American sol- 
diers since they left their faraway homes." 

It was a job! 



TH E First American Army was given a task which 
was accomplished successfully largely because 
of its audacity. For three years the lines had 
remained practically stationary in that sector because 
both the Germans and the Allies foresaw the difficul- 
ties which would be encountered in an attack over the 
difficult terrain of that particular part of the Western 
Front. They realized the strength of the defenses 
which had been established by both sides. Further, 
the Germans, at least, had experienced those difficul- 
ties in the Crown Prince's feverish attacks on Verdun. 
"They shall not pass!" the poilus had declared. 
And they did not pass ! 

In General Pershing's own report of the operation 
to the Secretary of War, he stated that this sector 
had been generally considered impregnable, but that, 
as the American operation was the hinge of the whole 
Allied offensive, it was the intention to bring the war 
to a decision then and there even if it involved the 
employment of every division of the Expeditionary 
Forces. The whole operation was aimed at the im- 
portant communication centers of Sedan and Mezieres 
which, if imperiled, would necessitate the general 
withdrawal of the German lines and the loss of huge 
supplies of material. 




One of the greatest factors contributing to the 
success of the operation was the inability of the 
German military mind to believe that an attack on a 
large scale would be made in this sector; it was absurd. 
But the enemy did not reckon with those reckless, 
daring men who wore the olive drab of a free country; 
who had come thousands of miles across a dangerous 
ocean because they had principles to uphold; who 
would fight for those principles with the fervor of 
Crusaders. And Crusaders never fought for a more 
sacred cause, the cause of Democracy and Humanity. 

As the peerless Foch said, "The Argonne and the 
heights of the Meuse were a hard sector to tackle. 
There were considerable obstacles. 'All right,* I said 
to General Pershing. 'Your men have the Devil's 
own punch. They will overcome everything. Go to 

The American army consisted of the First, Third, 
and Fifth Corps, each corps having three divisions 
in line and one in reserve. The Ninety-first Division 
was in line as a part of the Fifth Corps which included 
the Thirty-seventh, Seventy-ninth, and Thirty-sec- 
ond divisions, the Thirty-second Division forming 
the initial Corps Reserve. The Thirty-seventh was 
on the right of the Ninety-first and the Thirty- 
fifth Division, of the First Corps, was on the left. 
The front to be occupied by the Ninety-first was two 
and one-half kilometers in width. Within the division, 
the final attack order gave the i82d Brigade the left 
of the division front, a line about a kilometer in 
length. To the iSist Brigade was assigned the right 
of the division 2one. 

The original division order prescribed that both 
Infantry brigades attack with two regiments on the 


line. A later order, however, changed this disposition 
for the i82d Brigade. The 563d Infantry was ordered 
to make the assault with one battalion on the line 
and one in support. The Second Battalion of the 
364th was ordered to follow the support battalion of 
the 363d at a distance of five hundred meters. Our 
First Battalion was ordered to follow the Second as 
regimental support. The Third Battalion had pre- 
viously been detailed as Brigade Reserve. Company 
"E" of the Second Battalion which was then on its 
way from Pagny-sur-Meuse, where it had been guard- 
ing German prisoners captured at St. Mihiel, re- 
Joined the regiment the second day of the attack. 
Company "L." of the Third Battalion, was detailed 
to act as combat liaison on the left^ — to fill up any 
gaps which might occur between the Ninety-first 
Division and the Thirty-fifth Division. 

"H" hour arrived and the barrage lifted from the 
German first line positions and concentrated on the 
defenses in Cheppy Woods. The Second Battalion, 
followed by the First, moved out at five-thirty, passed 
around the west side of Mount des AUieux, deployed, 
and with Companies "F" and "G" in the first line 
and "H" in support, advanced over the eastern slope 
of Cigalerie Butte. The skirmish line reached the 
wire entanglements in front of the French trenches 
■but, in the dense fog which then prevailed, was unable 
to locate the gaps cut through the wire the night 

In the meantime, the First Battalion, commanded 
by Major Austin B. Richeson, had advanced in single 
file along the road which ran between Mount des 
Allieux and Cigalerie Butte. The advance was halted 
by a machine-gun organization which was on the same 



road and blocked the passage through the French wire. 
The Germans began to shell the road and it was at 
this time that Lieutenant Elmer J. ("Cy") Noble, 
the famous University of Washington athlete, ist 
Sergeant Clifton F. Barnett, and a number of others 
were killed by shell-fire. Shortly after the shelling 
began, the First Battalion was ordered to take up the 
first line position of the regiment. Passing around 
the machine-gun company, it followed the 363d in 
its assault on Cheppy Woods. In the meantime 
the Second Battalion, comma,nded by Major Wal- 
ter H. Gregory, had worked its way through the 
wire and followed the First Battalion in support. 
Our machine-gun company, not able to pass with 
its carts, went forward under bombardment carry- 
ing its heavy guns and ammunition. The First 
Platoon took the right of the regimental sector, 
the second the left, and the third the center. Here 
the first two casualties occurred in this company- 
one man and one mule. 

The Third Battalion, commanded by Major Fred- 
erick W. Rase, consisted of Companies "I," "K," 
and "M," Company "L" having gone over the top 
in the morning to act as combat liasion on the 
left. This battalion remained on Cigalerie Butte 
that day. They passed a very restless time before 
marching at five in the evening toward the front. 
Much against their desire to be with the rest of the 
companies in the first day's drive, they had to pa- 
tiently wait, content with the encouraging news 
brought back from the front by wounded who were 
being carried in large numbers to the aid station on 
the Butte. The crest of the mountain was lined all 
that day by men watching the small, indistinct, olive- 


drab dots on the open fields below, advancing, ever 
advancing, in the face of the German rear-guard 
action. They were keenly disappointed to know that 
they formed the Brigade Reserve which at that time 
appeared to be a "cushy" job. Two days, however, 
found them on the front lines at Eclisfontaine engaged 
in the hardest fighting the regiment experienced in 
the Argonne, which more than offset their inactivity 
of September 26th. Even protected, as they were, 
by the Butte, several men were wounded by shell 
splinters and bullets. One lad was asleep, apparently 
in absolute security, when a stray machine-gun bullet 
struck him in the foot, burying itself beneath the 
skin. In the afternoon, the Third Battalion witnessed 
the thrilling sight of a German aviator attacking 
and destroying two French sausage balloons which 
had been sent up several miles in the rear for observa- 
tion. Out from behind a cloud unexpectedly darted 
a German Fokker and within a brief moment the first 
great bag was a mass of flames. A small white speck 
was seen to detach itself from the balloon and was 
readily identified as the observer making his getaway 
in a parachute. The flier made straightaway for the 
second balloon and in an instant it was in flames. 
Some time later, another German attempted to repeat 
the performance by bringing down a third balloon. 
Just as it appeared to the watchers on the Butte 
that he had come within range of his quarry, a fast 
little French chaser came out of his hiding-place 
behind a cloud and dove at the Hun's tail, machine 
guns blazing forth a stream of bullets. The German 
tried to evade the tenacious little Frenchman but 
could not shake him loose. Presently the German 
was seen to flutter like a wounded thing, and with one 


last shudder he plunged, head on, to the earth 
thousands of feet below. 

The twenty-sixth was a beautiful day. The sun 
flooded the battlefield with warmth and brilMance as 
if it, too, were adding its might to the side of right- 
eousness. The sun which dissipated the dense fog 
of the early morning set that evening on a field which 
had been bought by many precious lives. It witnessed 
newly made graves of friend and foe, yellow mounds 
which loomed up strangely against the greensward. 

Cheppy Woods bristled with machine guns, placed 
to command the roads and light tramways along 
which most of the skirmishers had to advance because 
of the density of the underbrush. The German 
gunners who had taken cover in bomb-proof dugouts 
during the barrage manned their guns as soon as the 
barrage lifted. And those machine gunners of the 
First and Second Prussian Guard divisions obeyed 
their orders to hold at all costs. They would con- 
tinue to fire their guns until hopelessly surrounded 
and only then would they come out of their concealed 
positions, both hands high above their heads, shout- 
ing "Kamerad." The machine guns were cleverly 
placed and camouflaged. The only thing which 
disclosed their locations was the puppety-pup sound 
of the Maxim guns they used, a sound distinguish- 
able from our own Vickers. The gunners' helmets 
were streaked with multi-colored paints so as to blend 
with the earth and brush of the emplacement. Many 
wore the Red Cross brassard. Hedges, straw stacks, 
and buildings were the favorite positions for these 
guns and we soon learned to recognize likely locations 
of gun emplacements. 

Cheppy Woods looked like a summer resort. With 


the true German desire for comfort, walks had been 
built in all directions, picturesque rustic bridges 
spanned a small stream, the dugouts were complete 
with furniture, lighted by electricity, heated by 
small iron stoves, and the exterior painted. Arbors 
had been made where the soldiers quaffed their beer 
and made their plans for their trip to Paris which 
Papa Wilhelm had promised them for four years 
running. When men from the First Battalion were 
mopping up the woods, they entered a building which 
had formerly been used as a German canteen. It 
contained a good stock of beer, cigars, and cigarettes. 
Some of the articles bore the stamp of the Y. M. C. A. 
Evidently, they had been captured from the British 
and French during the spring offensive. The men 
did a good mopping-up job and it was a "dry" canteen 
when they left. 

The Germans had also set numerous traps in the 
woods. Grenades had been secreted in buildings 
which, with the opening of the door, would by means 
of connecting wires, be exploded. Mines were buried 
along the trails and tramways requiring only the 
set of a skirmisher's foot to set them off. They 
were foiled in their devilish ambitions by the work of 
our Intelligence men who were quick in spotting them 
and posting a warning for those who might follow. 
When the Third Battalion marched through the 
woods that night in the darkness these warnings were 
seen and men posted to prevent anyone from spring- 
ing the traps. 

Our men advanced through these woods in spite of 
everything they encountered. Machine gun after 
machine gun was put out of action and the crews sent 
back as prisoners. All that morning, long lines of 



prisoners, in single file, guarded in some cases by a 
single doughboy, trudged back across No Man's Land 
to the prisoners' cage. It was not an uncommon sight 
to see a diminutive doughboy, armed with a rifle 
and fixed bayonet, nearly as tall as he, proudly march- 
ing tali, crestfallen, Prussians before him. The pris- 
oners were utilized for carrying back wounded and 
in digging graves in the rear for those who had 
fallen in battle. 

After the 363d Infantry had cleared Cheppy Woods, 
the line was reorganized on the northern edge near 
La Neuve Grange farm. Our First Battalion was 
put in the assault line on the left of the brigade front, 
the 363d on the right. By five-thirty that evening, 
the First and Second Battalions and the machine- 
gun company, abreast of the 363d Infantry, had not 
only advanced four and one-half miles during the 
day to and beyond the shattered village of Very, but 
had taken seven hundred yards of the front allotted 
to the Thirty-fifth Division which had advanced 
more slowly. (In the A. E. F., it became quite the 
style to place the responsibility for all troubles on 
"the division on our left.") 

An incident occurred that day which shows in a 
characteristic manner the spirit of the 364th. On an 
open slope exposed to the German lines, our front line 
was held up temporarily by flanking machine-gun fire. 
Company "H" was ordered to filter through the 
German lines. Suddenly, a jack-rabbit jumped out 
of a nearby shell-hole and bounded across the field in 
the direction of the Germans. Instantly, many En- 
fields cracked, the rabbit fell, " killed in action. " That 
important mission accomplished, the men proceeded 
to outflank and capture the Boche machine guns. 


This same spirit was again exhibited the same day 
by Pvt. Volney Clements, of the Medical Detachment. 
Clements was dressing a wounded German when a 
fragment of an exploding shell inflicted a flesh wound 
in his neck. Dropping his First Aid dressings and 
precipitously deserting the Hun, he grabbed a rifle 
and with typical Hoosier wrath, rushed forward and 
joined the infantrymen on the front lines. 

That evening the line was again reorganized. The 
First and Second Battalions were moved from their 
positions on the west of the Brigade front to the east 
of the line — to the right of the 363d, The First 
Battalion was relieved by the Second and went into 
support. That night the front line was located on the 
high ground north of Very. Orders were received to 
continue the attack at midnight but were later re- 
voked. Shelter trenches were dug and outguards 
established. Men, worn out by their first day of 
fighting, slept on the ground without blankets; slept 
as they had never slept in the days before they entered 
the army when they climbed into feather beds in 
steam-heated rooms. It had been a day full of strain 
and fatigue — and sorrow, for many "Buddies" had 
"gone West" and many more had been wounded by 
shell or bullet. That day, one oiflcer and 37 men were 
killed; four oflficers and 107 men wounded; seven 
men missing in action, and one man, Pvt. Paul A. 
Munden, of the machine-gun company, a prisoner 
in the hands of the Germans, 

Private Munden was the only man from the regi- 
ment taken prisoner by the Germans either in the 
Argonne or Flanders battles. He was captured the 
night of September 26-37th while out with a recon- 
noitering patrol of the Thirty-seventh Division, 

^m WITH THE 364th INFANTRY 65 

^H having become lost from his company during the 
^H day. The patrol was fired upon by two concealed 
^B German machine guns, Munden's comrades being 
^H either killed or wounded. Munden took cover in a 
^M shell-hole but was afterward discovered by the Ger- 
mans, captured, and taken to Regimental Head- 
quarters from where he was sent to the Brigade 
Headquarters of the Fifth Prussian Guards, Here he 

I was subjected to strenuous questioning by German 
intelligence men, without result. While in Sedan, 
Munden saw fourteen trains, each on an average of 
sixty cars in length, laden with wounded Germans. 
With other Americans, he was taken to a prison camp, 
at Rastatt, Germany, where he remained until the 
signing of the armistice. 
Company "L," acting as combat liaison on the 
Division's left, had a man-sized job. Gaps occurred 
which the company had to fill in and a day of hard 
fighting developed. In its advance through the eastern 
part of the town of Cheppy, ahead of the Thirty- 
fifth Division and abreast of the tanks which did 
effective work in clearing out machine guns and 
snipers in the village, many prisoners were taken. 
Sergeant Walter Hartmann accompanied by two 
Corporals and six men, bagged five German officers 
and 1 58 men within a space of half an hour, some of 
^L whom had concealed themselves in dugouts. In 
^H German, he ordered the occupants of one of the dug- 
^1 outs to surrender. They hesitated. The Sergeant 
^1 tossed a grenade through one of the dugout's openings 
^^ and Huns streamed forth, blood running from their 
^H noses and ears, caused by the concussion. Sergeant 
^H Hartmann "loaned" a German medical officer and 
^H thirty men to one of our Aid Stations and was given a 


receipt for the balance. Most of the Germans were 
collected as they ran down a main trench near Cheppy, 
driven by other men of Company "L" commanded 
by Lieut. Charles H. Paul. Sergeant Hartmann and 
his men had stationed themselves across this trench 
and held the "sack" while the Germans, unsuspect- 
ingly, ran into it. The following men assisted Ser- 
geant Hartmann in making the capture: Corporals 
Charles H. White and Vernon H. Powell; Privates 
Bruce A. Adams, Virgil E. Garmon, Daniel Sartoris, 
John Hayden, Walter J. Meyer, and John Schinneller. 
Corporal Powell had a narrow escape while entering 
the trench. At short range, a German fired at him 
with a Luger, missing him. The Corporal dropped to 
the ground and before the German could fire again, he 
brought his Enfield to a quick aim and sent a bullet 
through the Hun's head. The other section of the 
platoon, under Lieutenant Paul, with Sergeant Fred 
A. Cox, second in command, later collected ninety- 
eight prisoners from other dugouts in Cheppy. Com- 
pany "L" was relieved of combat liaison duty the 
next day and joined the Third Battalion which, re- 
leased as Brigade Reserve, moved up to Very the 
morning of the twenty-seventh. 

Friday, the twenty-seventh, the men, refreshed 
somewhat by the sleep they were able to get between 
shifts on the line of outguards, were ready to hit 
the Germans again. The Second Battalion and 
Company "C" of the First Battalion were in the 
assault, the Third Battalion in support, the First 
Battalion in reserve. 

The advance commenced at nine-thirty. The line 
went forward under heavy machine-gun fire coming 
from the little battered town of Eclisfontaine and the 



Bouleaux Woods to the west of the village. It was 
learned later that Eclisfontaine formed a part of a 
defensive line which had been prepared by the enemy 
a long time before, as one of the positions in the rear 
where he could make a stand against a hostile attack. 
Lanes of barbed wire had been constructed and 
trenches dug for this purpose. It was a diificull task 
to get through the barbed wire. Gaps were few and 
only a small number of men could safely filter through 
at a time, because groups of men filing through the 
gaps would have offered a fine target and would have 
drawn fire. 

The line was held up for two hours. The 361st 
Infantry, on our right, and the 363d, on our left, 
were meeting the same desperate opposition. At 
two-thirty in the afternoon, Major Gregory, com- 
manding the Second Battalion, reported to Lieut.- 
Colonel John J. Mudgett, then commanding the 
regiment, that the enemy was apparently planning a 
counter-attack and asked for machine guns. The 
front line was ordered to prepare a defensive line and 
shelter trenches were dug 1 50 yards south of the wire 
entanglements. Our artillery then threw shells into 
Eclisfontaine and Bouleaux Woods, and by five o'clock 
the first line had passed through the barbed wire and 
was advancing rapidly in the village of Eclisfontaine 
and into Bouleaux Woods. The fire of the one- 
pounders and a German Minnenwerfer {trench mor- 
tar), captured by the Stoke's Mortar platoon, which 
had entered the battle without a single mortar, 
assisted the artillery in reducing the hostile resistance. 
The one-pounders, under Lieutenant Russell B. Tripp, 
were employed for barrage purposes, supplementing 
the Seventy-fives. With rifle-like accuracy, they 



threw their 37 mm. shells into the German positions 
at the rate of thirty shells per gun per minute, the 
guns finally getting so hot that they would not recoil 
to the firing position. They had to be placed into 
"battery" by hand. Our machine-gun company 
had five guns in action here and aided the Infantry 
in the advance past Eclisfontaine and in the organiza- 
tion of the outpost line. 

Although the line had penetrated from three 
hundred to four hundred yards north of Eclisfontaine, 
it was compelled to withdraw, in the evening, to a 
position south of the village because the main road 
running through Eclisfontaine, the Varennes-Dun- 
sur-Meuse highway, was to be the barrage line that 
night for the corps artillery. 

This withdrawal of the line was the cause of one 
doughboy's experience which sounds very much like 
an extract from Poe's House oj Usher. Private L. 
B. JVlcNamara, machine-gun company, relates this 
story about his adventures on the front lines that 
night: "1 awoke feeling slightly cold, and slowly 
separated myself from the bramble hedge which had 
served me both as a boudoir and blanket. My com- 
pany had advanced through the village during the 
afternoon, and because of darkness, had taken up a 
position along this hedge for the night. Everyone 
not on guard did as I had done — laid down for a well- 
earned rest. Corporal Koeppe's gun was in the hedge 
three feet away on my left and another gun close by 
on the right. 

" When 1 awakened there was not a single belliger- 
ent sound. The front was quiet. I silently crawled 
over to Corporal Koeppe's gun emplacement, intend- 
ing to comment on the undue stillness. Koeppe and 



his gun were gone! I went to the other emplacement. 
The spot was inhabited only by fantastic shadows. 
I reconnoitered the entire hedge — it was as free from 
my comrades as a Sunday K. P. list is of volunteers. 

"Suddenly I espied a figure, asleep, under a tree. 
With genuine relief, I went over to the tree and shook 
the sleeper and guardedly whispered in his ear, 'Hey, 
Buddie, the company has moved out.' No response. 
A beam of light flashed on the face of the sleeper — it 
was a giant Boche who had been put to sleep, forever, 
by a good Yankee bullet. He was beginning to give 
forth that odor peculiar to dead Dutchmen. 

"This was followed by the sound of a Boche patrol, 
dangerously near. My retreat, which began simul- 
taneously, may have lacked dramatic incident and 
military dignity but it was accomplished with a pro- 
found singleness of purpose — to gain a very definite 
objective in the rear: my company!" 

Our total advance for the twenty-seventh was 
about one and a half mites. One officer and twelve 
men were killed, two ofllcers and sixty men wounded, 
and one man missing in action. 

The attack was continued the next day at nine 
o'clock. The whole brigade sector was ordered to be 
taken over by our regiment, the Third Battalion on 
the right, the First Battalion and the machine-gun 
company on the left, and the Second Battalion in 
support. The 363d regiment, although ordered to 
follow us in support did, however, advance with us 
on our left. Fifteen minutes before zero hour, the 
artillery laid a barrage on the German positions north 
of Eclisfontaine. We advanced under cover of this 
barrage and that of our machine guns until opposite 
Exmorieux Farm. It was here that machine guns, 


located in the farm buildings, began their puppety- 
pup music. The Boche "whizz bangs," hurtling 
through the air, screamed at us as if our addresses 
had been written on them by the gunners of the Hun 
batteries. Whenever they came too close, we would 
drop to the ground, or dive into one of the numerous, 
conveniently located, shell-holes, until after the ex- 
plosion. The burst of a shell is like the spray of a 
fountain and it was only the using of good judgment 
to drop to the ground when a shell came our way. 
At first we hesitated to take this precaution for fear 
of having our comrades think us scared but that was 
due to our inexperience with artillery fire. More 
than one life was saved and many wounds avoided in 
that manner. 

The enemy artillery was particularly annoying that 
day and, in fact, during the whole time we held that 
portion of the line near Eclisfontaine. The reason 
was revealed when a week later Hill 255 was taken 
by the 362d Infantry. The Germans had an ob- 
servation post on that hill which commanded an un- 
obstructed view of the country in the region of 
Eclisfontaine. Frequently two or three men were 
fired upon when they crossed areas exposed to enemy 
observation. On the twenty-eighth, the enemy bat- 
teries were located unusually close — in fact, we were 
the target for much direct fire. In direct artillery 
fire, a shell gives but short warning — the "whizz" 
does not last much longer than the "bang." One of 
these guns, a Seventy-seven, was located immediately 
north of Tronsol Farm, not over fifteen hundred yards 
distant from Exmorieux Farm. The observers of the 
Regimental Intelligence section located its position 
the next day and it was fired upon by a battery of 


Seventy-fives, attached to our Brigade. The first 
shot hit the German squarely, throwing up a shower 
of planking and earth. It never bothered us again. 
A machine-gun nest was spotted by the observers 
near the German gun and it met the same fate at the 
same time. 

Our one-pounders, machine guns, and the captured 
Minnenwerfer accounted for a number of the Hun's 
Maxims and by one-thirty the skirmish line had 
advanced through Exmorieux Farm, capturing a few 
prisoners. Snipers in the Epinettes Woods on our 
right delayed the advance of Company " K" until 
they were routed by our own snipers. The enemy 
used many gas shells against us that afternoon, mainly 
diphosgene gas, which resulted in several lightly 
gassed cases. 

Beyond Exmorieux Farm is a deep ravine. Boche 
machine guns, located on the high ground at the head 
of this ravine, poured a stream of bullets on us as we 
crossed. Fortunately, they were firing at long range 
and caused but few casualties. Across the ravine is 
Baulny Woods, a patch of thick underbrush. These 
woods were taken under heavy machine-gun fire (the 
guns and gunners concealed in the thickets) and a 
barrage of enemy air-burst shrapnel. Bullets and 
shrapnel did not stop the advance and by nightfall 
the regiment occupied the ridge north of Baulny 
Woods and Tronsol Farm. Moreover, Company 
"K" had advanced several hundred yards beyond 
this ridge but, with the coming of darkness, was 
compelled to drop back to the ridge in order to connect 
up with the rest of the line. The point reached that 
afternoon by Company " K" was the most advanced 
point reached by the regiment. 



We dug in for the night. The only tools we had 
with which to dig our shelter trenches were the little 
short-handled shovels carried by three men of each 
squad. Despite the difficulty of excavating with these 
shovels, which are not much larger than the little 
spades we, as children, used for digging pirate's caves 
in the sands of Pacific Coast beaches in days gone by, 
nevertheless, we soon felt a real affection for them. 
In fact, they contested very strongly the ancient claim 
of an infantryman's rifle as being "his best friend." 
Certainly, they were responsible for affording us 
better protection against enemy shells than were our 
Enfields. Because of the shortage of shovels and the 
oversupply of Hun shells, mess kits, helmets, and even 
bare hands were used in scooping out holes in the 
ground. The first day of she!! fire taught us more 
about the meaning of "cover" than all the many 
lectures we had heard at Camp Lewis, combined. 
And there was no difficulty in appreciating the dis- 
tinction between "cover" and "concealment." We 
recognized that distinction when the Boche shelled 
us in our concealed positions in Baulny Woods. 

We also commenced to develop a strong friendship 
with the steel helmets, popularly known as "tin hats" 
or "tin Lizzies" (since they had been produced by the 
Ford factories). Up to our first introduction to shell- 
fire, we felt some animosity toward these helmets; 
they were heavy and, notably during the hikes and 
maneuvers in August, during our training, attracted 
and retained the sun's heat like small, fireless cookers. 
When we got into action, the weight promptly 
disappeared. The tin hat became a life-saver for 
many, and serious wounds were avoided when shell 
splinters struck and were deflected by these hel- 




mets. They were also used as pillows, wash basins, 
and shovels. 

From the way the Germans sent up flares and 
rockets that night, we concluded that they must be 
getting nervous — to use Tommy Atkins' expression, 
"they had the wind up their backs." The day's 
fighting had netted us two miles but we paid the 
price for our gains. Two officers and twenty-seven 
men lost their lives; eight officers and 197 men were 
wounded; five men were missing in action. The 
twenty-eighth of September will go down in the annals 
of the regiment as being its hardest day of battle. 
It was a fight for every yard, every minute. 

What would be our feelings under fire? We had 
asked ourselves that question for months. The twenty- 
sixth, twenty-seventh, and especially the twenty- 
eighth brought us the answer. Considering our 
feelings generally, we were not scared, although there 
were times when we were frightened, temporarily, 
when bullets or shells came unpleasantly close. To 
be scared would do us no good. And more than that 
we were part of the big team playing a game of life 
and death. So much depended upon our own in- 
dividual efforts. We forgot personal danger in the 
desire to win. Our comrades were doing their part; 
we had to play up — to play the game. We were under 
a severe nervous strain caused by the high tension 
under which we were working, and we were worn out 
physically by the loss of sleep and the lack of warm 
food, but we still had another punch. 

In spite of the strain, we never missed anything 
that had a flash of humor in it. One day a detail from 
Company "B" was ordered back from the line on 
some special mission. It was dangerous to get away 


under enemy observation, and the men were cautioned 
to move in single file at least five paces apart. Fritz 
"got wise" and started them on the double-time with 
some well-placed shells. The way was muddy and 
it was hard going. Finally one doughboy called to 
another, "I can't run any farther." "Neither can 1, 
John." Both slowed down to a walk. WHIZZZZZZ- 
BANG! WHIZZZZZZ-BANG! Both forgot the 
teachings of the I. D. R. and resumed, not at i8o, 
but nearer to 580 per! 

One man relates the following : One long, slim, wild- 
eyed, souvenir-hunting Yank with a wicked bayonet, 
chose as his adversary a Hun officer at fifteen yards. 
The Boche executed a rapid retreat as the wild Yank 
charged. The chase grew interesting, the pursuer 
gaining little by little until the point of his bayonet 
could almost reach the German's back. Great beads 
of perspiration burst out on the officer's brow. Some- 
thing must be done. So he slipped his field glasses, 
map case, and Luger pistol to the ground. The story 
ends with the escape of the officer. Would any good 
Yank pass up such souvenirs for the sake of sticking 
a bayonet in a mere German? 

A battle is quite a matter-of-fact event. Should 
you read the Field messages which were sent during 
the heavy fighting of the twenty-eighth by battalion 
and regimental commanders, you would be aston- 
ished at their imperturbed and apparently uncon- 
cerned character. From their tone it would be difficult 
to determine whether they had been written during 
the fierce battle of the Argonne or during one of the 
sham battles in the training area. Men on the front 
line would walk upright to a neighboring shell-hole 
to get a cigarette from an obliging "buddy." One 




lad came running down the hillside below Baulny 
Woods, holding a bloody finger, which had been nearly 
severed by a machine-gun bullet, and exhibiting it, 
proudly exclaimed, "See what I got!" and passed on 
to the First-Aid Station. He was proud of an honor- 
able wound. 

A modern battle is not romantic. It has no thrills 
such as characterized the Rough Riders' charge up 
San Juan Hill or Pickett's charge at Gettysburg. 
Those days have passed. Tactics have changed. 
Few men, comparatively, are on the front lines and 
they operate, usually, in units not larger than a 
platoon. The elements of a command are organized 
in depth to resist the counter-attack by the enemy 
which in this war always brought about the fiercest 
fighting. In the Argonne, we saw but few Germans; 
they were fighting a rear-guard, a delaying action. 

Modern warfare has no thrills, no romance, but it 
has its glory — the spirit of bravery, unselfishness, and 
sacrifice on the part of the soldiers, of which we saw 
hundreds of instances in the Argonne. And frequently 
those incidents would ordinarily be considered com- 
monplace, but they were as truly heroic as the charg- 
ing of a machine-gun nest. One Mess Sergeant, of 
Company "D," 348th M. G. Battalion, attached to 
our regiment, served hot meals to all comers within 
one thousand yards of the firing lines, sometimes under 
shell-fire. A lad from Company "M" got upon his 
knees to put a bandage on a wounded man beside him, 
machine-gun bullets cutting the brush over his head. 
He could have waited a few minutes longer, until the 
firing had stopped, and then tied up the man's wounds 
with safety. He was not thinking of himself, only of 
his wounded comrade. 


Private Elmer A. Tye, of Company "l," a sniper 
of the Third Battalion Intelligence section, was 
fatally wounded, September 29th, when returning 
to the front lines from the cemetery at Eclisfontaine 
where he had assisted Lieutenant Lamar Tooze at the 
burial of his twin brother, Lieutenant Leslie O. Tooze, 
of Company "K," killed during the company's ad- 
vance north of Baulny Woods, September 28th. Tye, 
with his own hands, had carved the cross for the grave. 
A fragment of a shell which exploded at his feet struck 
him in the neck. Lieutenant Tooze, who was with 
him, rushed to his side and placed his thumb over an 
artery in an attempt to check the flow of blood. A 
First-Aid dressing was applied but Tye continued to 
bleed inwardly. 

"Don't bother about me. Lieutenant, I'm a goner. 
Just lay me out straight and make me comfortable. 
And write to my mother. You will find her address 
in the notebook in my pocket," he said, chokingly. 
During the half-hour which elapsed before he could 
be carried to the ambulance, he never lost conscious- 
ness, and carried on a continuous, rational conversa- 
tion. He died in a Field Hospital the next evening. 
Consummate bravery! 

Until the morning of October 4th, we held the line 
on the ridge north of Baulny Woods, waiting for the 
divisions on our right and left to catch up. On the 
twenty-eighth, the left flank division was at least a 
mile, and the right flank division, at least a half-mile, 
behind the front lines held by the Ninety-first. The 
Thirty-fifth was counter-attacked on the afternoon 
of September 29th and fell back toward the village 
of Baulny, two miles south of our front lines, to re- 



Our Division Commander told the Corps Com- 
mander on September 30th that the Ninety-first was 
ready to continue the attack but was informed that, 
due to the relief that night of the Thirty-fifth and 
Thirty-seventh divisions, it would be impracticable 
to advance before the relieving divisions were in 
position. Each day thereafter, the Division awaited 
orders to move forward, and, in fact, the Commanding 
General stated in his report to the Corps Commander: 
"This Division, if supported on right and left, will 
have less casualties in an advance than by remaining 
at a place so accurately observed by hostile 'planes, 
every spot in which is registered by hostile artillery." 

An attack on this front was scheduled for Septem- 
ber 29th by the 363d Infantry with the 316th En- 
gineers in support and our regiment in reserve. But 
it was never made. Lieut.-Colonel Mudgett was 
severely wounded in the hip by shrapnel and Major 
Richeson shot through the lung by a machine-gun 
bullet, both on the twenty-ninth. The same shell 
that wounded Colonel Mudgett wounded five others 
including Lieutenant de Noblens, of the French Army, 
attached to the regiment as an adviser. Lieutenant 
Glenn A. Ticer, Sergeant Dan Kirkhuff, Corporal 
Coleman, and Private Courtney. Lieut.-Colonel 
Mudgett, Lieutenant de Noblens, Lieutenant (after- 
wards Captain) Allan C. Hopkins, Regimental Ad- 
jutant, Lieutenant Ticer, and seven others were 
sitting under cover of an embankment at Regimental 
P. C. when a shell exploded nearby. Peculiarly, 
fragments of the shell wounded every alternate man 
in the line, Lieutenant Hopkins and four others 
escaping unscathed. 

Colonel Mudgett being wounded. Major Gregory 


took command of the regiment until evacuated to the 
hospital the next day, suffering from shell concussion. 
Lieut.-Colonel Lucius C. Bennett, who had been on 
duty as Acting Division Quartermaster and who 
previously at Camp Lewis had be^n with the 361st 
Infantry, then took command of the regiment. Cap- 
tain Thornton Chase, of Company "C," assumed 
command of the First Battalion, and Captain William 
E. Simpson, of Company "H," became commander 
of the Second Battalion. 

September 29th brought a threatened counter- 
attack on the front of the 363d Infantry, on our left. 
Two companies of our Second Battalion were sent 
over to reinforce the 363d but were later sent back 
because the enemy's counter-attack was never allowed 
to materialize. A thin line of Germans started to 
advance on our positions until Major Aird's and Cap- 
tain Brinkop's machine gunners got good targets and, 
as the French would say, it was "finish" with the 
counter-attack — they "parteed toot sweet"; that is, 
those that were able to do so after the gunners finished 
putting the final touches to the attack. 

We improved our positions, that day, by enlarging 
our trenches. The German batteries renewed more 
vigorously the shelling of the day before. Apparently, 
new guns had been brought up from the rear, and 
other guns, which had been endangered by our ad- 
vance, moved back to the higher ground north of 
Gesnes and in the Morine Woods. They "hunted" 
us in our "fox holes" and not without result. A few 
men crossing exposed areas were certain to draw a 
salvo of fire. Fortunately, a number of shells were 
"duds" — they did not explode upon striking the 
ground. The fact that one of these shells was a dud, 



although it unfortunately caused the death of Cor- 
poral Ervin C. Stacey, of Headquarters Company, 
was responsible for the saving of other lives. Corporal 
Stacey and other members of the Liaison section, 
were grouped on the south slope of Baulny Woods, a 
position which was difficult to search by artillery 
fire on account of its sharp declivity, when a shell 
sailed over and struck the Corporal, killed him, but 
failed to explode. 

The casualties that day were high considering that 
we were not advancing. Twelve men were killed, 
eight officers and ninety-five men wounded, and two 
men missing in action. 

The next day, September 30th, verbal Division 
orders were received to further organize our position. 
The day before, corps orders were received at Division 
P. C, directing that the Ninety-first should take up a 
defensive line, running from the middle of the Cierges 
Woods, southwesterly through a point just south of 
Exmorieux Farm, to Hill 231, a line about two kilo- 
meters in length. The front line on the northern edge 
of Baulny Woods was held by a line of outguards. 
Trenches for the corps line of defense were dug just 
south of Exmorieux Farm and the reserve line was 
located in the woods immediately north of the main 
highway running through Eclisfontaine. The Second 
Battalion took over the line of outguards, the Third 
was on the line of defense, and the First in reserve. 
All the machine guns of the brigade, including our 
own, held the line on our exposed flank from Tronsol 
Farm back to the right flank of the First Division. 
The line of outguards ran along our original position 
on the ridge north of Baulny Woods, over one kilo- 
meter in front of our line of defense. The corps order 


directing the taking up of the line of defense did not 
cause us to forfeit any of our hardly-won ground. 

During the movement of the First and Third Battal- 
ions to their positions, they were subjected to heavy 
shell-fire. The thirtieth gave us a new example of 
Hun treachery. During our rapid advance of Septem- 
ber 28th, the woods near Eclisfontaine had not been 
entirely cleaned up — some snipers still remained. 
They were very daring, opening fire upon individual 
men with audacity. At the Aid Station established 
by the First and Second Battalions in Eclisfontaine, 
many were fired at by snipers concealed in woods 
nearby. Even the doctors, stretcher bearers, and 
wounded were continually fired upon. One lad who 
had been wounded in the leg on the front line was 
killed while walking back to the Aid Station for treat- 
ment. Parties scoured the woods in search and on the 
thirtieth at least four snipers were killed. They had 
concealed their identity by putting on articles of 
American uniform which they had picked up on the 

Many had very close calls from the bullets of these 
snipers. Three men from Company "E" went after 
a sniper firing from an attic window of a building 
in Eclisfontaine. They had no sooner entered the 
battered house than a shot from the sniper's rifle 
struck Private Filer's gun stock. With deadly aim 
the latter pulled the trigger and the German fell from 
his perch in the rafters with a hole in his breast. 
Captain A. E. Graupner, before being wounded in the 
battle, killed a sniper with his pistol after the Hun 
had fired his rifle point-blank at him from the branches 
of a tree. Fritz's poor shooting helped to form a 
battle-cry and the Huns quickly lost their appetite 



for murder when our men "laid back their ears" and 
went through their opposition yelling "Raspberry! 
you Huns! Never touched me! Shoot! you can't 
hit us anyhow!" 

Luck was often with us. Private Joyner was ad- 
vancing on a dead run toward Eclisfontaine when a 
German shell of small caliber passed right between 
his legs. The explosion of the shell a few yards from 
him bowled over the hustling private. He arose 
immediately and broke all speed records in gaining 
the friendly protection of a near-by slope. Eye- 
witnesses assert that the only thing that saved him in 
this close "shave" was the fact that he is the proud 
possessor of a pair of beautiful bowlegs. 

Private Barton of Company "E," was in the best 
of humor at one stage of the battle. War had ceased 
to worry him. Bullets without number were zipping 
around his head. He began hopping up and down, 
first on one foot and then on the other, shouting, 
"Listen to the humming birds," Suddenly he was 
seen to grasp his neck with both hands. A "humming 
bird" had inflicted a slight wound. "There you are," 
he said; "if 1 hadn't been hopping up and down the 
bullet would have bumped me off sure." 

Two men were on the trail of a sniper when they 
were accosted by an officer. "What are you doingP" 
he asked. "We're after that sniper in the woods over 
there," one of the men replied. "There is no use 
looking in those woods; there is no sniper there," the 
officer returned. Something in his appearance and 
voice made the men suspicious. They began to put 
him through the third degree. Finally he was asked, 
"What camp in the States did you come from?" 
"Camp Lewis," he replied glibly. "Where is Camp 


Lewis?'' "Near fio5to«, Washington/' "Hands up!" 
one of the men ordered and brought his gun to the 
"ready." The officer reached for his pistol; he never 
got an opportunity to draw it. A caliber .45 bullet 
ended his espionage career. The "officer" was a 

Even the burial squad under Chaplain Wilson was 
shelled while burying both American and German 
dead, being compelled, more than once, to take refuge 
in open graves. 

German shells and bullets that day killed one officer 
and thirteen men and wounded one officer and ninety 

October i st and we were still holding the same lines, 
digging our trenches deeper, dodging shells, and wait- 
ing for something to develop. Inaction under these 
circumstances was not to our liking. Our part was too 
impersonal. It was maddening to have German 
gunners a few kilometers away, safe in their emplace- 
ments, shooting at us with their Seventy-sevens, while 
we were unable to retaliate with rifle or bayonet, 
having to depend upon our own artillery for getting 
the satisfaction which we felt we should get for our- 
selves. The shelling was even heavier than the pre- 
vious day but we were well dug in and our casualties 
were not so large. One officer and nine men were 
killed and twenty-nine men wounded. 

The regiment was warned to be ready to advance 
the following day but was later advised that the 
attack had been postponed. 

The effective strength of the regiment on October 
2d was thirty-nine officers and 1407 men. These 
figures include only those officers and men actually 
on the line and do not include the few who were 




detailed to guard baggage or who were on duty at the 
railhead in the rear. The efFective strength of the 
regiment, September 26th, including these men, was 
about twenty-seven hundred. To fill up the gaps in 
our ranks, some replacements were sent up. 

A German aeroplane was brought down in the 
morning over our lines by three of our own 'planes. 
He had come, alone, apparently on a scouting mission. 
As soon as he was sighted, three of our chasers made 
for him. With eaglelike speed, they darted down 
upon the German who, when he observed that he was 
about to be attacked, started to run for his lines. 
Our speedy little chasers overtook him as if he were 
standing still and we could see the "tracer" bullets 
indicating the stream of fire they were pouring into 
him. Almost immediately we saw a thin column of 
smoke issue in the path of the German which gradually 
increased in volume until finally with one flash the 
whole machine was a mass of flames. It fluttered in 
mid-air a few seconds like a wounded bird and then, 
nose earthward, it spiraled to the ground. The 
aviator's body was seen to hurtle from it and was later 
found, badly burned, a kilometer away from where the 
craft, itself, fell. 

The German aviators were extremely daring and 
flew over our lines almost at will. Some came for 
observation; others to use their machine guns against 
and to drop bombs upon the infantry. While lying 
on the hillside at Very, September 27th, a German 
'plane, flying very low, was fired upon by the men, 
using their Enfields. Hundreds of bullets were 
directed at him without effect. Afterwards orders 
were given prohibiting the employment of infantry 
rifle fire against the Boche fliers because it revealed 



our positions. After witnessing the prompt enemy 
artillery fire which always followed within a few 
minutes after a 'plane had circled above us, we re- 
quired no invitation or orders to take concealment 
when one appeared. 

The Third Battalion relieved the Second and one 
company of the 363d Infantry on the lineof outguards 
that night under the cover of darkness. Word was 
received at eight in the evening that we would go 
forward the next day but it was countermanded 
shortly after midnight. October 2d took its toll in 
killed and wounded. One man was killed; twenty- 
one men wounded. 

The third of October marked our eighth day in the 
line, three days of advancing, five days of holding— 
of waiting. It was the waiting that was the real test. 
We had been in the fight for over a week living on 
cold bully beef and hard-tack; we were sick with 
dysentery; we had endured eight nights without 
blankets or overcoats; our nerves had been sorely 
tried by the loss of sleep and the strain of battle. The 
rolling kitchens were brought up during the day by 
the Supply Company and many of the men were given 
their first warm food since the beginning of the battle, 
ffot-cakes, eggs, and candy were the edibles everyone 
longed for most, with hot-cakes polling the largest vote. 
After the fighting, nearly every letter home mentioned 
the desire for hot-cakes. The Regimental Surgeon, 
Major Richard J. Dowdall, in commenting upon the 
probable reasons, said it was due to a craving for two 
things — sugar and something hot, both of which were 
unobtainable at the front. 

Starting at eleven o'clock in the morning and con- 
tinuing until eight that night, we suffered the most 


intense artillery fire of the whole engagement. Shell 
after shell was thrown into our positions, the First 
Battalion in the woods, north of Eclisfontaine, getting 
a large portion of them. 

When darkness fell that night, we all believed that 
the dawn of another day would find us going forward 
again. Our ranks had been thinned and we were 
physically worn out but we had a punch left — we 
would give it to the Huns. That night a long, thin 
column of troops made its way silently across the 
ridge beyond Very and through the wire south of 
Eclisfontaine. The Thirty-second Division, Corps 
Reserve, had been sent up to relieve us. Men on the 
front lines did not know that they were to be relieved 
until the relieving battalion actually arrived. The 
relief was made quickly but well, and soon small 
groups of our men started across country for the place 
of bivouac in Very Woods. The organizations re- 
lieved that night suffered five casualties during the 
relief, but the Machine Gun Company which was not 
relieved until the following morning had twenty-three 
casualties before being relieved. 

The last day cost the regiment the loss of five men 
killed, one officer and fifty-two men wounded. The 
casualty report of October 4th contained the names of 
three men killed in action, twenty-three men wounded. 
This included the casualties suffered during the relief. 

The share of the 364th Infantry in the Argonne 
battle is a credit to the men of the regiment. In the 
first three days, they tore through what had been con- 
sidered impregnable defenses for a gain of eight miles. 
They fought with the reckless bravery which had been 
cultivated by their life in the unfettered West. They 
stalked machine guns with the same native ability 


with which they had hunted deer in the Sierras or 
G>ast Range Mountains. They helped to draw the 
unstinted praise of the Fifth G>rps G>mmander, 
Major General George H. Cameron, contained in the 
following letter to General Johnston, commanding 
the Ninety-first Division, dated October 3, 1918: 

"Under orders from the First Army, the Ninety- 
first Division will be relieved from the front line to- 
night and placed in Corps Reserve. 

"The Corps Commander wishes you to understand 
that this relief results solely from a realization, from 
higher command, that your division has done its full 
share in the recent success and is entitled to a rest for 
reorganization. This, especially as during the past 
three days, it has incurred heavy casualties when 
circumstances would not permit either advance or 

"At a time when the divisions on its flanks were 
faltering and even falling back, the Ninety-first 
pushed ahead and steadfastly clung to every yard 

"In its initial performance, your division has es- 
tablished itself firmly on the list of the Commander- 
in-Chief's reliable fighting units. Please extend to 
your officers and men my appreciation of their splendid 
behavior and my hearty congratulations on the bril- 
liant record they have made. 

"George H. Cameron, 
" Major General, 
"Commanding Fifth Army Corps." 

Naturally, every mile of country reclaimed from 
the invader was pui^chased by tremendous sacrifices. 
The first casualty reports for the eight days' fighting 


brought up to the lines by the Division Red Cross 
representative, Lieutenant Colin V. Dyment. He also 
brought as many cigarettes as he could carry in a 
gunny sack over his shoulder. Lieutenant Dyment 
had many narrow escapes from exploding shells while 
on his trips along the line. 

The work of the Supply Company during the Ar- 
gonne and later in Belgium in keeping the men 
supplied with food and ammunition was a credit to 
the organization. Ammunition was brought up to the 
lines in spite of the congestion of traffic and under 
shell-fire, when the dropping of a single shell on an 
ammunition cart would have resulted disastrously. 
Much of our success is due to the elTorts of this com- 
pany, both officers and men, who labored tirelessly 
at their dangerous and important tasks. They were 
not only the first to reach the front line with supplies, 
but supplied other organizations as well as their own 
with both ammunition and rations. 

Figures are unavailable showing the number of 
prisoners and amount of material captured by the 
regiment during the Argonne offensive but it is certain 
that we took our share of the numbers credited to the 
division. The following figures compiled by the 
Division Intelligence OITicer show as nearly as can 
be ascertained, the prisoners and material captured 
by the Division during its participation in the Meuse- 
Argonne offensive: 

Prisoners: 1 1 officers; 2360 other ranks; total, 2371. 

Material: 440 machine guns; twenty-four 77 mm. 
guns; one 105 mm. gun; six 150 mm. guns; five Min- 
nenwerfers; 766 rifles; 2,200,000 rounds small arms 
ammunition; 12,000 shells for 77 mm. guns; and one 
German tank. 


The Argonne battle was the test which found the 
regiment to be what we had always striven for and 
had hoped it would be — ^an efficient fighting unit. 
We went into it, our first experience under fire, with 
natural misgivings in our own minds as to our own 
ability. We came out of it richer by our experiences; 
better qualified for whatever the future held in store 
for us in the way of fighting. We did not have to 
wait long to apply our better knowledge of fighting 
acquired in the Argonne — three weeks found us in 
Belgium, fighting with the French, Belgians, and 
British on the Scheldt. 

The Argonne offensive, without doubt, was the 
greatest effort of the Expeditionary Forces; the thrust 
which aimed at Germany's vitals and imperiled her 
military machine. And it is of no small satisfaction 
to know that the 364th Infantry was in it at the be- 
ginning, and, during eight days of advancing and 
holding, contributed its share to the successful prose- 
cution of that campaign; to know that during the 
whole time we were in the line our faces were always 
and determinedly towards Germany. 



ON being relieved the night of October 3d-4th, 
the regiment began marching back across 
hill and valley of the ever-memorable battle- 
field. The Germans tried hard to inflict heavy casual- 
ties by laying down a barrage with mathematical 
precision. Due to a stroke of fortune a number of 
shells which landed dangerously close to the column 
of one unit, which was moving during the first part of 
the night, proved to be duds and sank with heavy 
thuds harmlessly into the ground. The Third Battal- 
ion was not so fortunate for one man was killed and 
several wounded by shell-fire that night. But scarcely 
had this battalion cleared the front line when the 
Germans laid down a vicious bombardment upon 
their former positions and the trench occupied but a 
short time previously by the Battalion Headquarters 
was pulverized. One or two companies did not get 
away until the morning but they proceeded over the 
hills in single file in daylight and suffered no casualties. 
Weary, almost unto death, we dragged ourselves 
heavily to the rear. Under constant strain for eight 
long days, sleeping on the cold ground and in the rain, 
living on bully beef and hard-tack, and weakened by 
dysentery, we must have presented a sorry spectacle 




to any observer. But Major Voorhies, then Brigade 
Adjutant and afterwards Lieutenant Colonel of the 
regiment, speaking of it later, said, "Dead tired 
though they were, they still had spirit enough to come 
to the salute as they passed me." 

Finally, after a hike of several miles, we turned off 
into Very and Cheppy Woods, near the original 
jumping-off place. Our friends, the rolling kitchens, 
from which we had been temporarily separated, were 
now impressed into double service for we were fam- 
ished. And when we actually rolled up into blankets 
with nothing to do but sleep, we began to think that 
life might be worth living after all. Some long-dis- 
tance guns were stationed nearby but their heavy 
hammering was only sweet music to lull us to sleep. 
The entire air force of the German Imperial Army 
could come over and raid us — we were not going to 
lose a wink of sleep if they bombed us into eternity. 

Two and a half days in the woods, gave us a chance 
to change from wild animals, living in holes in the 
ground, to human beings equipped with blankets and 
even overcoats, We even got a chance to see a news- 
paper and to buy some Y. iVI. C. A. cookies and to 
receive and write letters. 

But on Sunday night, October 6th. we began a 
march back to Dombasle — a heart-breaking hike both 
because of our weakened condition and the rough and 
rocky character of the road, leading across a country 
which had been a battleground for years. But the 
worst was yet to come. Arriving past midnight on a 
bleak hillside above Dombasle, we were told to bivouac 
in the mud and rain as best we could. Shelter tents 
had not arrived but we lay down on the damp ground 
and slept as we had never slept before, on "Graveyard 


Hill" as we came to call it because of a large French 
military cemetery. 

Life in the Dombasle mud fields was not the pleas- 
antest chapter in our army career. We lived in mud, 
we slept in mud, we ate in mud — mud which when 
once introduced to us immediately became our staunch 
and bosom friend. Up ahead of us the guns continued 
their deep-voiced diapason. But ours was now a 
different battle— a battle against twin evils, mud, and 

Once the dreariness was relieved by a rare and in- 
spiring sight which was later chronicled in the press — 
a sky filled with American aeroplanes. It seems that 
the Huns, who were discovered to be preparing a 
counter-attack, were treated to a suiprise in the way 
of a heretofore unheard-of concentration of American 
aeroplanes, over three hundred in number, which 
turned their bombs and machine guns loose on the 
gathering enemy hordes, completely routing them. 
At another time a peculiar cloud formation in the sky, 
which will never be forgotten by any man who saw it, 
served to relieve the gray monotony. 

The regiment began marching south on October 
gth. Julvecourt, nine miles away, was reached the 
first day, Triacourt, about the same distance, the 
second day, and on the third day after a long grind of 
fourteen miles, we reached our new billeting area with 
headquarters at Bussy-la-C6te, northwest of Bar-Ie- 
Duc. The marches were made by day but we found 
them none too easy for we had not yet regained our 
full strength. 

While we were hammering the enemy hard near 
Eclisfontaine, he had virtually thrown up his hands 
in the person of the Chief War Lord who dispatched a 



frantic appeal for an armistice. So favorable was the 
outlook, that we felt that we would scarcely have an 
opportunity to rest awhile before hostilities would 
cease. But dreams of a fortnight's recuperation in 
our new area were rudely dissipated when the gaps 
in our ranks were filled up almost immediately with 
replacements and we were ordered to entrain, begin- 
ning October 17th. Our new destination was unknown, 
but rumor whispered, "Belgium," and for once in its 
long prevaricating career, army rumor was right. 

Down the valley of the Marne, we sped, past the 
shell-marked towns of Epernay, Chatillon, and 
Chateau-Thierry at a rate much faster than we had 
ever traveled in France before — we were on our way to 
battle again and ours was the right of way. Reaching 
the outskirts of Paris, which is the hub of all French 
railway lines, we turned in a northeasterly direction. 
Soon we found the hillsides and railway cuts were 
lined with freshly abandoned funk-holes and dugouts 
and next the shattered town of Amiens came into 
view. Our trains rolled down the valley of the Somme, 
the German-coveted highway to the sea, through 
Abbeville, and on to the sand-dunes bordering the 
Channel where we slopped for hot chow from our 
rolling kitchens carried on Hat cars. British soldiers, 
and particularly "Aussies" with their turned-up 
hats, were everywhere in evidence. Passing through 
the great British bases, Boulogne, Calais, and Dunkirk, 
we had a splendid opportunity to view the rear areas 
of the Empire's fighting machine. Everything created 
a very favorable impression upon us — vast groups of 
barracks for men and stables for horses, aviation 
fields with their camouflaged hangars for aeroplanes 
and gigantic shelters for airships, hospitals with huge 


Red Cross warnings for hostile aviators, athletic fields, 
railway yards, and supply dumps, all giving the ap- 
pearance of neatness and efficiency. Effective use 
was being made of hundreds of German prisoners in 
rock quarries and elsewhere. 

Finally, October i8th, we reached our destination, 
Wieltje, Belgium, and, stepping off the train, we found 
the strangest station imaginable. Instead of the cus- 
tomary depot with its waiting room, ticket office, and 
baggage room, we found barbed wire, rats, and shell- 
holes. Not one brick of the village remained and the 
surrounding country was the weirdest we had ever 
seen. We were on the famous Ypres battlefield where 
terrific fighting had raged four years. The country 
was desolation raised to the nth degree. So tremen- 
dous had been the flood of high explosive let loose on 
this tortured country, that the earth's surface had 
literally changed its appearance. All traces of build- 
ings had disappeared, woods were represented by only 
a few shattered stumps, and the once smooth farming 
country was now a mass of grassy hummocks and 
water-filled shell-holes, so numerous as to be continu- 
ous in every direction. The fiery upheaval had caused 
the landscape to take on a resemblance to a hum- 
mocky sea when swept by a great storm. 

We bivouacked among the shell-holes and dugouts 
for the night. The next morning we surveyed the 
battlefield more closely. As far as eye could reach, 
the earth was seared by trenches, hundreds of them. 
In order to escape the water which promptly appeared 
upon digging a* few feet into the earth, many of the 
trenches were constructed above ground by heaping 
up banks of earth, reinforced by sandbags. Shelters 
were constructed of "elephant*' iron, covered with

I We remained in these strange surroundings through- 

out Saturday, October 19th. In the evening, a gentle 
rain began falling, but to offset any dampening effect 
this might have upon our spirits, the band, which had 
succeeded in getting back its instruments after having 
been deprived of them throughout our Argonne ex- 
periences, started up a few lively airs. The song 
entitled, / Love You, California, brought forth a yell 
of delight from the erstwhile residents of that common- 
wealth. Strangely, these same California members of 
the regiment found a British sign on the bleak battle- 
field which read, "California Camp"! 

Toward midnight, orders were received to be ready 
to march by 7 a.m. So, on Sunday, October 20th, we 
bade good-bye to our unusual camping place and 
started in a northeasterly direction following in the 
wake of the Allied army which was driving back the 

Strange sights greeted us along the rough, cobble- 
stone road, which by constant repairing had survived 
the fury that had destroyed everything else. Ruined 
British tanks, shattered wrecks of aeroplanes, bat- 
tered concrete pill-boxes, tons of unused shells and 
duds, vast stretches of barbed wire, lonely graves 



marked by white crosses — all the wastage of the 
terrible four years' struggle — lined the roadside. And 
with all the indescribable conglomeration of muck and 
mud and impedimenta lying about us, whom should 
we encounter but some French soldiers sweeping the 
roads! Rain was falling and with their rough brooms 
they were pushing the slush to one side. Every cross- 
road had been mined by the retreating Germans and 
a roundabout plank road built by Allied engineers. 
Our course, according to the map, lay through certain 
villages, but when we came to where, for example, 
Poelcapelle should be, we found nothing but a sign, 
stating that upon this spot once stood the town. 
Utter destruction— not a stick or stone of once happy 
homes was visible to the eye. Nearby French en- 
gineers exploding duds recalled the sound of battle 
to our ears. 

When we had made our way to the top of the gentle 
rise, known as Passchendaele Ridge, we looked for- 
ward into a different world — an apparently normal 
world, made up of trees and buildings and church 
steeples. But a nearer approach revealed the fact 
that the whole countryside had suffered from the 
recent battles. Houses, which from a distance 
appeared to be intact, were found upon nearer ap- 
proach to be gashed with shell-holes, and every village 
had been considerably knocked about. 

The regiment took up its quarters in some old 
German barracks and damaged buildings in the 
Gemenhof-Reygerie area, a few miles west of Roulers. 
French and German dead still lay upon the battlefield, 
a number of which were buried by our regiment. 
But amid the tragic scenes of battle was one pleasing 
sight, numerous green turnip fields. We had read so 



much about the mud and desolation of Flanders that 
these evidences of civilization were more than a 
surprise — they were a delightful "find" after the 
desert wastes of the Argonne and at Ypres. "Slum" 
now developed a fragrant odor of fresh vegetables as 
turnips and carrots were gathered and added to the 
stew by enterprising cooks. Patient stomachs were 
at last treated to a change from beef and bread. And 
dysentery promptly fled from camp: "Vive les Flan- 
ders turnips!" 

At this time we were being issued French rations 
which contained but a small amount of fats. It 
was about this time Corpoial Homrighouse, of the 
Machine Gun Company, fed a Colonel on shoe dubbin, 
the paste issued for waterproofing our army shoes. 
A number of men were boiling potatoes and turnips 
but the Corporal wanted his fried so he used his ration 
of shoe dubbin. Just as he sat down to a pailful of 
French fried, a Colonel and two Lieutenants, all very 
hungry, put in an appearance. The meal was shared 
with the officers. "The best potatoes i ever ate!" 
declared Colonel Bennett, but he never knew the 
reason why. Later, when the officers of the company, 
wished to celebrate Lieutenant Worcester's birthday, 
the cook prepared hot-cakes fried in dubbin, artfully 
camouflaged with jam. The Eskimo, Peter Karluk, 
of Company "A's" "Foreign Legion" (twentynane 
nationalities), who insisted on devouring candles, had 
to take a back seat at this performance. 

The ground in this area was low and damp and up 
ahead the big guns were calling. So on October 25th, 
we marched to Vossemoien, about five miles south of 
Roulers. Roulers itself is a large town, the coveted 
goal of the British fall drive of 1917 and now badly 



shot up. At this time, its streets were full of soldiers 
of various nationalities — French, British, Belgian, 
American, and Siamese. In the surrounding vicinity, 
we discovered large cemeteries of German troops 
fallen in the Ypres sector, particularly in the 191 7 
struggle. The country was practically level and to the 
east could be counted as many as fifteen observation 
balloons in the air at one time. Aviators circled about 
and two balloons were seen to be set on fire by hostile 
craft in one afternoon. 

Memorial services were held on Sunday, October 
27th, in all regimental units in honor of our comrades 
who had fallen in the Argonne. Besides a brief address 
the band played appropriate music, the regimental 
colors dipped in salute, and Taps was sounded. Men 
took part in this ceremony who themselves were to be 
lying on the field of honor in three short days. Such 
is the shifting fortune of war ! 

The gaps in the commissioned personnel caused 
during the fighting in the Argonne were filled by 
numerous promotions. Among others, two Majors, 
Major Humphreys and Major Rasch, received their 
commissions at this time and our Commanding Officer 
Lieut. -Colonel Lucius C. Bennett became a full 
Colonel. To fill up gaps while in the Argonne and 
afterward. Captains had stepped forward into Majors' 
places and Lieutenants into Captains'. Two Com- 
panies were commanded by Sergeants for a time in the 
Argonne fighting, after the officers had been killed 
or wounded. First Sergeant William S. Clark took 
command of Company "A," and First Sergeant Harry 
H. Harding took command of Company "K," and 
both did excellent work in the emergency. In the 
crucial days since September 26th the following 



Lieutenants had at one time or another been in 
command of Companies: Lieutenants Bud Sawyer, 
Company "A," Charles T. Busha, Company "C," 
Kenneth L. Cooper, Company " D," David N, Millan, 
Company "E," Grover F. Peterson, Company "F," 
Robert L. Sabin, Jr., Company "H," Clifford A. 
BIy, Company "K," William J. Dallas, Company 
"M," Russell B. Tripp, Headquarters Company, and 
Clifford Evans, Supply Company. 

October 28th, a move of six and one half miles 
brought us to Emelghem-Dam. a suburb of the large 
town of Iseghem. The inhabitants did not recognize 
our uniform and inquired of us curiously who we were. 
By mixing French, German, and English, we managed 
to get something resembling Flemish, in trying to 
talk with them. We called their language the "hot 
potato language." 

Headquarters Company was billeted in a mill which 
converted logs into brush brooms. The Belgian 
manager displayed a huge wallet full of German paper 
money which had been paid to him by the invaders 
who had purchased his brooms. But scarcely a block 
away smoked the ruins of another factory, which the 
Germans had deliberately fired before their retreat. 
The steel bridge spanning the canal had been torn 
to shreds by a German mine, but a convenient 
barge served well in place of pillars for a temporary 
structure. At night could be heard the peculiar 
droning sound of German 'planes which rained bombs 
upon the environs of the town, producing huge crashes 
but no casualties. All candles were immediately ex- 
tinguished (an easy task because we were on French 
rations which always overlooked candles 1) and we 
rushed out to stare like curious children. So close 



was one 'pla"^ that we could see its outline against 
the starry sky. 

Orders were received from headquarters, iSad Bri- 
gade, at 2.45 P.M. October 29th. to send two rifle 
companies and the Machine Gun Company to relieve 
certain French units in the line. Companies " C" and 
"D" and the Machine Gun Company marched from 
their billets in accordance with this order at four 
o'clock that afternoon. The relief was completed 
under bombardment but without casualties at four 
in the morning, October 30th. The day was passed 
by these companies on the front line without incident. 

Late at night (as usual !) came the sputtering motor- 
cycle bearing orders for the remainder of the regi- 
ment. We were to be on the road at 8 a.m., bound 
for Wielsbeke, six and a half miles away. Passing 
through the towns of Inglemunster and Oostroose- 
beke, we reached the grounds of a chateau near Wiels- 
beke at noon. This once beautiful chateau had long 
been used as a Hun billet. It had been stripped of all 
its furniture, filled with military bunks, and the walls 
smeared with revolting language and sketches. And 
then to complete their vandalism, the Boche had 
showered it with shells upon retreat. 

But the shell-scarred grounds were still beautiful. 
On the pond still swam majestically a white swan in 
strange and peaceful contrast to his surroundings. 
Age alone was his insurance against the "slum" pot, 
according to meaningful whispers of interested cooks. 
Cleverly hidden among the shrubbery of the chateau 
grounds was a battery of French 150's, their long 
barrels pointing menacingly eastward. Short trenches 
had been dug to shelter the gun crews in case of counter 
battery fire. Ammunition was corded up in piles and 


all was ready for the barrage which was to open the 
battle on the following morning. 

Nearby, an anti-aircraft battery sent shells towards 
distant German 'planes, paying especial attention to 
those which tried to approach the near-by crossings 
of the Lys River. And amid all these warlike scenes, 
Belgian peasants were busily at work gathering their 
crops of soy beans, turnips and flax! 

Our rolling kitchens, hidden in the brush, gave 
forth savory odors and we partook eagerly of the hot 
meal served to us in the afternoon. The band also 
added its bit in raising our spirits by playing several 
selections of lively music. With the approach of 
darkness, the sky seemed filled with bombing 'planes, 
both Allied and German, the latter trying desper- 
ately to destroy the temporary bridges across the Lys 
over which lay our path to the front line that night. 



IN Belgium, about seven miles west of the River 
Scheldt, is a patch of scrubby woods and thick 
underbrush, known as the Spitaals Bosschen. 
By October 30th, the French, Belgians, and British, 
continuing their brilliant Ypres offensive, had driven 
the Germans to a line running along the western edge 
of these woods. The Germans disliked the idea of 
being forced across the Scheldt and had made some- 
what of a stand there in this stage of their rather 
precipitous retreat Berlinward. The Scheldt has 
figured in nearly every European war of note, and 
historians often speak of it as the "bloody" Scheldt. 

We were now a part of King Albert's Group of 
Armies of Flanders, under the direct command of the 
French Sixth Army. 

The job which the French High Command had 
assigned to our Division was to rout the Germans 
from these woods and force them across the river. 
Once they were put on the move, they could not safely 
stop until they had reached the higher ground on the 
eastern bank of the Scheldt, near the important town 
of Audenarde. A French artillery Colonel had told 
one of our officers that we would fail in our efforts; 
the operation was too difficult; the French had tried 
it and had been driven back. 



And it was a good job — a Ninety-first Division- 
sized job, Spitaals Bosschen woods covered an area, 
roughly, of one square mile. In front of them was 
patch after patch of turnips and a farmhouse usually 
occupied a corner of each patch. The turnips, at that 
time of the year, were luxuriantly green and about the 
height of a doughboy's knees. Numerous straw stacks 
dotted the landscape like buff-colored ships on an 
ocean of green. Under peace-time conditions, we 
could have appreciated the rare beauty of Belgium's 
rural scenery-^the rolling, turnip-green fields, the 
white, thatch-roofed cottages, the buff-colored straw 
stacks, the dense thickets of Spitaals Bosschen, and the 
network of roads and trails which had been cut through 
these woods were most picturesque. Our esthetic 
sense, sadly enough, was dulled by the knowledge that 
the luxuriant foliage of the turnips, the ship-like straw 
stacks, the interior of the little cottages, those im- 
penetrable thickets, all concealed machine guns and 
gunners, which, like coiled rattlesnakes, were waiting, 
ready to sink their leaden fangs into those who would 
disturb their hiding-places. 

Companies "C" and " D," commanded by Major 
Lester W. Humphreys, and the Machine Gun Com- 
pany, under command of Captain Walter Brinkop, 
had moved into position, the morning of October 
30th, south of the town of Waereghem and opposite 
the Spitaals Bosschen woods, relieving two infantry 
companies and the machine guns of the 133d French 
Infantry, which were holding a line approximately 
one thousand yards long. They became a part of the 
force, commanded by Major William A. Aird, 348th 
M. G, Battalion, to which had been awarded the 
difficult task of cleaning out these woods. It was then 


supposed to be a mopping-up job, since the 363d 
Infantry, on the left, and the 181 st Brigade, on the 
right, were scheduled to attack one hour and forty 
minutes earlier, a smoke screen to be used in protect- 
ing their flanks against fire from the woods. This 
screen was also designed to conceal from the Germans 
the fact that the flanking organizations were cutting 
them off. Once encircled, they were trapped. The 
First Battalion would advance through the woods, 
taking what prisoners they could and driving the rest 
into the hands of the organizations holding the 
"sack." This was to be the mopping-up job. It 
turned out to be one of the stiffest bits of fighting any 
unit of the regiment has ever experienced. 

Company " C" took over the left of the line, extend- 
ing ultimately one thousand yards along the Vive 
St. Eloi-Waereghem road. Company "D" held the 
right on a half-mile line west of and paralleling 
the road. The Machine Gun Company supported 
the infantrymen along the whole line. This line was 
nearly twice as long as the line originally held by the 
French units relieved by the First Battalion. More- 
over, the extension of the line was not made until four 
hours before the attack was to take place on October 
31st. During the twenty-four hours Companies "C" 
and "D" and the Machine Gun Company held the 
line, preceding their advance, they did not suffer a 
single casualty although under heavy machine gun 
and artillery fire — a tribute to the knowledge of taking 
cover, acquired in the Argonne. 

In the meantime, the balance of the regiment had 
moved to the chateau near Wielsbeke. 

After night had shrouded the roads and country 
with a mantle of black, the Second and Third Battal- 






ions, Companies "A" and " B," of the First Battalion, 
Headquarters and Supply Companies, began their 

march toward the front. Companies "A" and "B" 
proceeded directly to the position near Spitaals 
Bosschen, already occupied by Companies "C" and 
"D," to support them in their advance through the 
woods the next morning at ten minutes past seven 
o'clock. The balance of the regiment, which had been 
designated as Division Reserve, marched to an area 
about two and one-half miles west of the line held by 
the First Battalion. During the afternoon. Colonel 
Bennett and Majors Rasch and Rase had recon- 
noitered an area about one kilometer nearer Wielsbeke 
than the area afterwards occupied, but the disposition 
was changed, later, by Division order. 

While marching to its position, the Third Battalion 
suffered one of the most deadly shellings which the 
regiment sustained. The Battalion was moving 
southward along a farm road north of Nieuwenhove, 
in column of twos with distances between companies, 
about ten o'clock in the evening. The head of the 
column had arrived at the junction of the farm road 
with the Courtrai railroad when out of the blackness 
came a salvo of screeching, large, caliber shells several 
of which struck the column directly. Seven men were 
killed outright and forty-six men wounded of whom 
four later died from the wounds they received. The 
casualties were divided almost equally between Com- 
panies "L" and "M," the two leading companies of 
the Battalion. 

Much speculation has been made as to the means 
used by the Germans in directing this fire. It is im- 
probable that the shelling was just a part of their 
artillery program of covering the roads in the hope of 


harassing or accidentally hitting ammunition and 
supply trains or troops which might chance to be on 
the road. Previous to the shelling aeroplanes were 
heard overhead, and shortly afterward caterpillar 
signals were seen in the air, apparently dropped from 
the 'planes, which might have given the information 
to the German guns. Belgium, we learned, was a 
stronghold of German agents; numerous soldiers, 
disguised as Belgians, had been left behind by the 
retreating Germans and possibly one of these agents, 
seeing our troops on the road, communicated the fact 
to a Hun battery. The firing was too well-timed to be 
undirected. After this occurrence we took greater 
precautions about secrecy and orders were given to 
clear out all civilians in the area of operations. The 
huge windmills, which were suspected of being used 
for signaling, were ordered to be placed with the 
wings horizontal and vertical. 

A couple of incidents happened in connection with 
the shelling of the Third Battalion which shows the 
stamina of the men under fire. Private John Supler, 
a carrier of an automatic rifle team, of Company 
" L, " was marching along carrying his Enfield and the 
ammunition and clips for the Chauchat when the 
shells dropped on the road. One shattered his rifle 
and inflicted a painful gash in his shoulder. Despite 
the wound, he clung tenaciously to his musette ba:g 
which contained loaded Chauchat clips. The team 
would otherwise be crippled by the loss of this ammu- 
nition. Against the advice of his comrades to report 
at once to the First Aid Station, he remained with the 
team and did not report to the Battalion Surgeon 
until the next morning and then because he had been 
ordered to do so by his Captain. Several weeks after- 




ward a report was received from an evacuation hospi- 
tal that Supler had been declared physically disabled 
for further active service. He earned the D. S. C. 
which was awarded him for his admirable conduct. 

That same night, Private Basil A. Kitsch, of 
Company "L," an automatic gunner, was fatally 
wounded by shell fragments. Strict orders had been 
given that all Chauchat rifles were to be carried by 
companies at all times. Although suffering terrible 
agony, he would not allow himself to be taken to the 
First Aid Station, hastily established in a near-by 
farmhouse, until his automatic rifle was found and 
placed by his side. These are two of many instances 
which demonstrate that everyone played the game; 
played it with a spirit which wounds would not crush; 
played it, moreover, when the game was being played 
in the shadow of Eternity. 

There was the humorous side also. 

Lieut. Colonel Voorhies tells this story about two 
recent replacements of Company " M" who had be- 
come separated from their organization during the 
shelling that night and had turned up at Brigade P. C, 
at which Colonel Voorhies was then Brigade Adjutant. 

"What are you doing here?" the Adjutant asked. 

"We are trying to find our company. Company 

" Follow this road, " directed the Adjutant, pointing 
down the road, which being in the direction of the 
Germans' frequent star-shells and occasional shelling, 
was obviously toward the front. 

"But, sir," one of the men inquired anxiously, 
"do you think it is safe up there?" 


The Division Reserve, commanded by Colonel 


Bennett, consisted of the 364th Infantry (less the 
First Battalion and Machine Gun Company), 346th 
M. G. Battalion, 3 i6th Engineers (less two companies), 
and two companies of the 348th M. G. Battalion. 
The reserve remained in the area south of Wielsbeke 
until November ist, when it moved forward to 
Spitaals Bosschen. While south of Wielsbeke, it 
was subjected to desultory shelling, some gas being 

Companies "A" and "B" while moving up to 
join Companies "C" and " D" suffered four casualties 
from shell-fire. Our Machine Gun Company was 
relieved by two companies of the 348th M. G. Battal- 
ion in the morning but remained in the line until the 
attack was launched — 10.30 — and was sent back to 
rejoin the Division Reserve. Before it withdrew, it 
left its stamp on the battle by shooting up a German 
reconnoitering patrol of five men, which ventured too 
close to a gun manned by Privates Masson and Ficken, 
of the second platoon, with the result that two of the 
Germans never went on another patrol and the three 
who remained speedily retired. 

At five-thirty on the morning of October 31st. the 
363d Infantry, on the left of the division line and 
north of Spitaals Bosschen, and the 181 st Brigade, 
south of Spitaals Bosschen, went over after the Ger- 
man defenders. This attack was not a surprise to the 
Germans. A German officer was captured by the 
107th U. S. Field Artillery, then attached to our 
Division and supporting our advance. The following 
document, dated October 30th, and signed by the 
German General, von Below, was found on this 

" I . Early to-morrow, we must be ready to meet a 


hostile attack. It is therefore ordered that from six 
o'clock on companies will be alerted for action. 

"2. Munitions may be got at the K. T. K. [dis- 
tributing point?] at any time. Empty light machine- 
gun feed boxes must be exchanged for full ones. 

"3. Opposite our sector lies the Ninety-first 
American Division. For each prisoner brought in, 
the division will give eighteen days extra leave." 

The 364th Infantry did not furnish any German 
soldier with the wherewithal for an eighteen days' 
extra leave! 

At ten minutes past seven o'clock, one hour and 
forty minutes after the 363d Infantry and i8ist 
Brigade had started their advance, the First Battalion, 
with Companies "C" and "D" in the first line and 
"A" and " B" in the second line, started out to "mop 
up" Spitaals Bosschen. Immediately, the Germans 
opened with their machine guns and resisted savagely 
our efforts to dislodge them from their hold on the 
Waereghem-St. Vive Eloi Road, iVlachine guns in 
the turnip fields, behind straw stacks, and in farm 
buildings showered the advancing lines with a leaden 
rain. Handicapped by a lack of rifle grenades, our 
men went after them with rifles and Chauchats, 
supported by the machine guns of the 348th M. G. 
Battalion. I ndian tactics were resorted to in reducing 
the enemy's guns. Filtering through his line singly or 
in small groups, while the Germans were kept down 
by supporting rifle and machine gun fire, our men out- 
flanked the guns, capturing guns and gunners or 
causing them to withdraw. This process continued 
until about twelve o'clock, when the enemy's resist- 
ance weakened and our advancing men tore through 
the turnip fields and into the thickets of Spitaals 


Bosschen. By three in the afternoon, the line had 
cleared the woods and was abreast of the flanking 
organizations which had started an hour and forty 
minutes earlier. And ours was a mopping-up job- 
in the original plan! It was a flght from start to 

The smoke screen which had been sent over to 
protect the flanks of the organizations on our right 
and left against fire from the woods was not dense 
enough and they were subjected to considerable en- 
filade fire which retarded their advance. Also, the 
screen did not prevent the Germans in the woods from 
seeing that they were being surrounded. Conse- 
quently, they withdrew and we failed to capture as 
many prisoners as we had contemplated. 

Lieutenant Howard H. Van Voris, First Battalion 
Intelligence Officer, was killed in the morning while 
leading a patrol several hundred yards in advance of 
our front lines. With admirable fearlessness, he 
undertook this mission of reconnoitering the enemy's 
position, hazardous at night, but doubly so during the 
daylight. He was killed instantly by machine-gun 

According to Major Humphreys, the force attacking 
the Spitaals Bosschen took sixteen prisoners. The 
whole Division took but thirty prisoners during the 
Ypres-Lys offensive, four of whom were taken later 
by the First Battalion in the vicinity of Hoorebeke 
St. Marie, the day after the armistice was signed. 
Thus the First Battalion took twenty of the thirty 
prisoners captured during the Division's operations 
in Belgium. Material captured by the Ninety-first 
in Belgium was: twenty-six machine guns; one 77 mm. 
gun; one 150 mm. gun; twenty-three rifles; seven 




^H thousand rounds of small arms ammunition; and one 
H motor truck. 

H When the German resistance began weakening, and 
H our line was advancing more rapidly, some "C" 
V Company men caught a glimpse of a man disappear- 
' ing near a woodpile directly ahead. Thinking him 
to be a German seeking cover, the doughboys carefully 
stalked their prey. No sign of a Boche! But one 
sharp-eyed soldier noticed a slight movement in a 
pile of straw against the woodpile. The Americans 
prepared to receive the Hun with fixed bayonets, but 
lo, from the straw, a young girl crawled slowly out 
with a rosary in her hand and a beseeching request 
for mercy written on her face. As she arose, the rifles 
dropped from the "on guard" position. Then another 
maiden and a man crawled forth from their hiding- 
place under the woodpile. Finally the old mother 
appeared at the opening of their little dugout, her 
eyes filled with tears of gladness, and clasping her 
rosary to her breast. Two doughboys jumped for- 
ward to assist her to her feet. Those who have never 
helped liberate an oppressed people will never know 
the emotions that welled up in these soldier hearts. 
It was a dramatic turn of affairs, that men, who a 
moment before were steeled to kill if necessary, should 
now be struggling with strange lumps in their throats. 
Words and gestures failed to express the joy and 
gratitude of the liberated people, and it was not until 
each soldier had been treated to a cup of milk (all 
they had to offer) that he was allowed to continue his 
pursuit of the Huns. 

After the First Battalion had achieved its objective 
in the afternoon, it was relieved on the front line by 
the Second Battalion, commanded by Major Hal H. 




Rasch, which had been sent up during the morning 
from the Division Reserve, to support the advance. 
The Second Battalion held the front line that night 
without sustaining a single casualty. The one- 
pounders and Stokes Mortar platoon were also sent 
up to the lines during the day. 

Routing the Boche from Spitaals Bosschen cost the 
regiment, in killed, two oificers and eighteen men, and 
in wounded, three officers and ninety-six men, of 
which all, except two men, wounded, belonged to the 
First and Third Battalions. 

One of the most striking circumstances connected 
with this advance was the failure of the civilian popu- 
lation to seek safety in the rear while the fighting was 
in progress. Frequently, they remained in their homes 
subjected to the fire of both sides. In several cases, 
men on the front line entered buildings in search of 
concealed Germans and instead found the inhabi- 
tants going about their daily indoor tasks almost as if 
nothing were happening. In a few instances, they 
found the occupants dead, victims of bullets or shells. 
At one home, the burial officer discovered an old Bel- 
gian farmer making a coffin from various articles of 
furniture, making it for an American soldier who had 
been killed nearby. These Belgian people greeted us 
with unfeigned appreciation, an appreciation which 
had been fostered four years by the assistance ren- 
dered by America through the Relief Commission. 
The Belgians complained of irregularities on the part 
of the Germans connected with the distribution of the 
food furnished by the Commission. 

After our advance had gained headway, about noon 
on the thirty-first, the enemy's artillery became less 
active. Fearful lest his guns would be captured, he 



^H moved them across the Scheldt. This involved a 
^M considerable delay in his artillery retaliation and 
^M compelled him to resort to long-range firing which 
^B lacked accuracy. While the Hun batteries were active 
^^ during the morning, a man from Company " D" was 
advancing through a field of turnips when a shell 
screeched through the atmosphere in his direction. 
Instinctively, he dropped to the ground. The shell 
landed near, followed by a terrific explosion. Some- 
thing struck him on the head, dazing him for an instant. 
When he collected his senses, he discovered that he 
had been hit by a turnip which had been catapulted by 
the explosion of the shell. He was not nearly so con- 

Icerned about his narrow escape from the shell as he 
was about the ingloriousness which would have been 
his had he been put out of action by a turnip. He got 
up muttering, " It's bad enough to be killed, but I'll be 
darned if I want to be killed by a turnip!" 
Even while advancing through the turnip fields 
under fire, the men snatched up and munched the 
turnips, which they called " Belgian pineapples." 
Something, after all, quite characteristic of their 
attitude in battle. In regimental parlance, the 
Spitaals Bosschen fight is known as the " First Turnip 

Private Bravos of Company "F" taught his com- 
rades a good lesson in the art of camouflaging. This 
soldier was utilizing a huge pile of turnips for conceal- 
ment, and he asked his platoon sergeant if he might 
eat some of the turnips as he was very hungry. He 
was told that he could eat to his heart's content. But 
the sergeant was surprised upon his return to find 
that Bravos had not touched a single turnip. When 
asked, why he had eaten none, he replied, " Well, you 


see, Cholly, when I get start to eat those turnip I 
remember little story 1 read when I was little boy in 
Greece. A hunter was chasin' a deer and got close to 
take a shot when the deer ran behind some leafy 
bushes and hide himself. By and by he get hungry 
and forget the hunter and he eat the leaves from in 
front of him. Then the hunter sees him and kills him. 
When I think of that story, I no eat the turnips. " 

November i st, the Division Reserve moved forward 
and occupied a position in Spitaals Bosschen. The 
First and Second Battalions, under division orders, 
reverted to and became a part of the Division Reserve. 
The 363d Infantry, two companies of the 348th M. G. 
Battalion and the 181 st Brigade took over the entire 
front and pushed forward that day against slight 
resistance. Our one-pounder platoon, under Lieuten- 
ant Johnston, Headquarters Company, participated 
in the advance. It was relieved in the afternoon of 
November 2d and rejoined the regiment. By night- 
fall, the attacking troops had taken the town of 
Wortegem and had established a line on the railroad 
embankment on the outskirts of the famous city of 

The regiment waited in reserve two days, Novem- 
ber ist-2d, enjoying a lack of artillery fire on the part 
of the Huns; watching with interest the big French 
observation balloons, which, inflated, were moved 
forward on trucks as our lines advanced; forming 
acquaintances with the friendly Belgians; getting 
rifles and equipment in shape for another advance 
which we were quite certain would soon take place. 
During the daytime, we took cover in the heavy 
underbrush so as to prevent Boche observation 'planes 
from locating our whereabouts. The German aviators 



were not so daring as in the Argonne. The British 
and French 'planes kept them over their own territory 
most of the time. At night, however, they would 
become more bold and venture forth on bombing 
expeditions. During the night of November ist, they 
dropped a few bombs, or " eggs" as they are popularly 
called, in Waereghem, not far from our position. 

Civilians living near the Spitaals Bosschen ac- 
quainted us with an interesting German ruse. We 
had noticed that wire had been strung rather uni- 
formly throughout the woods and there were some 
indications that electric lights had been installed. 
Upon inquiry, we learned that the Germans had 
installed a lighting system in the woods, closely corre- 
sponding to that employed in street lighting in cities. 
By illuminating the woods and keeping the neighbor- 
ing towns of Wortegem and Waereghem in darkness, 
the woods would receive the eggs dropped by Allied 
airmen on night-bombing raids rather than the cities. 
With true German attention to detail, the lights had 
been partially screened, so that the deception would 
not be too obvious. Enough light still shone through 
the screen to make the woods resemble a town. 

The expected advance was taken up by the regiment 
that evening. Verbal instructions were given Colonel 
Bennett at the Division P. C. Returning to the 
regiment at 9:40 p.m., he gave his orders to the 
Battalion and separate organization commanders who 
had previously assembled at Regimental P. C. 
Within a remarkably short time, the regiment was 
on the road, moving toward Wortegem. 

The written Division field orders came at midnight 
while we were on the march. The regiment was 
directed to proceed to the temporary footbridges which 



had been thrown across the Scheldt, by the Thirty- 
seventh Division, two and one-half miles north of 
Audenarde between the villages of Eyne and Heurne. 
These bridges were over ten miles by road from our 
position at Spitaals Bosschen. The plan was to have 
our regiment cross the river three miles north of the 
heights located one-half mile southeast of Audenarde. 
Upon these heights had been placed batteries and 
machine guns which formed a strong defensive posi- 
tion. We were to attack this hill from the north — a 
flanking movement. Upon the hill was located the 
former Belgian stronghold. Fort Kezel. 

Since our proposed line would run east and west, this 
movement would place us at right angles to the Ger- 
man lines which faced west and ran north and south. 
Attacking toward the south, as was planned, would 
expose our left flank to the enemy. To take the hill, 
it would be necessary for us to march ten miles from 
our position in Spitaals Bosschen to the footbridges, 
cross the river, form for attack on the eastern bank, 
and then advance two and one-half miles southward 
before we could begin to launch our attack. To 
accomplish this, two things were essential: first, that 
we should cross the river, form for attack, and advance 
the two and one-half miles under cover of darkness 
and, second, that the attack should be a surprise to 
the enemy. To make it a surprise would necessitate 
our being in position close to Fort Kezel while it was 
still dark. It was a daring operation, for during our 
advance southward on the eastern side of the river, 
we would be moving parallel to the enemy's front, 
subject to enfilade fire. His guns were located on 
higher ground and had an unobstructed field of fire 
of the area over which we would advance. After 


arriving at the point from which we would launch our 
attack against the hill, signal rockets, calling for a 
barrage on Fort Kezel, were to be sent up by our front 
line. Only then would our artillery begin its prepara- 
tion for our attack. This was a part of the plan to 
surprise the Germans — a premature bombardment 
would have disclosed the fact that an attack was to 
take place and would have undoubtedly drawn fire 
on the river crossings. 

Within the regiment, the Third Battalion, with 
Companies "1" and "K" in the line and "L" and 
"M" in support, and the Machine Gun Company on 
the left flank, was to make the assault. The Second 
Battalion, echeloned to the rear and to the east, was 
to form the second line. The First Battalion was to 
follow the Second, with its line echeloned to the east 
beyond the left flank of the Second. The purpose of 
echeloning the First and Second Battalions to the 
east, beyond the left flank of the Third, was not only 
to keep down the enemy's enfilade fire but to afford 
protection against a possible attack directed at the 
leading battalion. 

The Thirty-seventh had managed, October 31st, 
to erect a pontoon footbridge and a log footbridge 
across the river one mile northeast of Eyne, and had 
established a small force of between 275 and 300 men 
on the opposite bank. The great majority of them 
crossed under the cover of darkness. During the day- 
time, the bridges were under direct observation of the 
enemy and any crossing in force would have attracted 
heavy sniping, machine gun and artillery fire from the 
Germans on the high ground east of the river to which 
the short range would have given deadly accuracy. 

We had been informed that our own engineers had 


also built a bridge in this locality. Later, however, 
we learned that it had not been constructed. 

We marched through the town of Wortegem which 
had been somewhat smashed up by our own and 
enemy fire. We then turned northeast, passing 
through the town of Oycke and thence to a road 
junction at a place called Sebastapol. Here, about 
4 A.M., we met the guides, who, we had been informed, 
would conduct the regiment to the river crossings. 
Instead, they brought the message that Colonel 
Bennett was directed to report to the Brigade P. C. 
of the Seventy-third Field Artillery, Thirty-seventh 
Division. Colonel Bennett reported and learned that 
the Brigade Commander desired to have a consulta- 
tion about the artillery which would support our 
advance the following day. Hastily rejoining the 
regiment, which was halted on the road. Colonel 
Bennett ordered the march to be resumed. 

We arrived at the small village of Ruybroek, one 
mile west of Eyne at 4.45 a.m. The Machine Gun 
Company which had become temporarily separated 
from the column, due to the difficult farm roads and 
the intense darkness, caught up with the regiment at 
this point. Seven men of the company were wounded 
by shell-fire, the only losses sustained by the regiment 
on this march. 

By this time it was getting light. To cross the 
stream in daylight would have been too costly in lives 
even had it been possible to get the entire regiment 
over; so costly that we would undoubtedly have failed 
in our mission. And by crossing in daylight we would 
have forfeited the element most important to the 
success of the operation — surprise. And, as a matter 
of fact, it would have been impossible for the entire 



regiment to cross on the pontoon footbridge and the 

log footbridge. The Thirty-seventh, using the bridges 
for several nights, had managed to get across less than 
half of a battalion. 

Appreciating the situation, Colonel Bennett ordered 
the battalions to march to assigned areas east of 
Oycke and dig in. The Germans were already pound- 
ing at us with their artillery. We dug in for the day, 
awaiting the darkness of night when we would make 
the crossing after one additional bridge had been 
constructed. This was to be done immediately after 
nightfall by a company of the 316th Engineers, which 
had accompanied us. 

As soon as the battalions had left Ruybroek for 
their allotted areas. Colonel Bennett, Captain William 
M. Simmons, Operations Officer, and First Lieutenant 
Charles H. Lembke, Intelligence Officer, of our regi- 
ment, and Captain Keene, of the 316th Engineers, 
made a reconnaissance of the river for the purpose of 
determining the possibilities of the two footbridges 
already built and a location for the additional bridge. 
Among other things, they learned that the men of the 
Thirty-seventh Division who had already crossed 
had been subjected to harassing fire from enemy 
aviators and that the enemy had made fruitless 
attempts to destroy the bridges with his guns. 

It was upon this reconnaissance that Lieutenant 
Lembke was severely wounded. A Boche aviator 
spotted the reconnoitering party. Diving towards 
them, he turned loose his machine gun and dropped 
several bombs. One of these bombs exploded near 
Lieutenant Lembke and fragments struck him in the 
head and shoulder. He was the last member of the 
regiment to be wounded by enemy fire. 


We remained in our fox holes all day, Boche aero- 
planes keeping the time from hanging heavily on our 
hands. With impunity they flew over our positions 
and several times opened fire upon us with their 
machine guns, but to no avail. 

Preparations were completed for the crossing that 
night. Being so close to the river, we could cross on 
the two bridges which had already been built and 
upon the third which was to be constructed by the 
engineers as soon as darkness fell. Darkness would 
also enable us to take up our formation for attack and 
move to the point near Fort Kezel from which we 
would launch our drive. 

But we never had the opportunity to carry the plan 
into execution. Orders from Division, received at 
4.10 in the afternoon, contained the information that 
the Corps Commander had directed the Division to 
withdraw from its position. Our regiment was to 
remain in the area then occupied until after darkness, 
when it could move back to the old area in Spitaals 
Bosschen. Meanwhile, the regiment was authorized 
to filter back in small detachments to Oycke where 
Brigade P. C. was then located. Our rolling kitchens 
and hot food were there, having been brought up by 
the Supply Company. This news was all that was 
needed to get us started back " toot sweet. " Although 
under artillery fire, we reached Oycke without any 
losses and were placed under cover in the buildings 
there. After dark a hot meal was served and shortly 
thereafter the battalions moved out independently, 
the Third across country, to Spitaals Bosschen. All 
organizations were back in their old bailiwicks by 
midnight. The march was made without a solitary 



While bringing up the Supply train to Oycke that 
morning, the Supply Company had been vigorously 
shelled by the German batteries located on the 
heights beyond the Scheldt. The train, a half-mile 
long, was moving on the Wortegem-Oycke road, 
about one mile from Oycke under direct enemy ob- 
servation both from the high ground across the river 
and from 'planes overhead. Salvos of shells came 
over and Captain Rolling directed that the wagons 
turn off the road. To carry out this order. Lieutenants 
Brittan and Grant, Sergeant Brock and Corporal 
Fries galloped along the train, reassuring and directing 
the drivers. A shell exploded close to Sergeant Brock, 
killing his horse and wounding him in the shoulder. 
Notwithstanding his wound, he refused to leave his 
post until the train was off the road and, in fact, until 
the Division was relieved that night, when he reported 
for medical attention. He received the Belgian War 
Cross and the Distinguished Service Cross. To Lieu- 
tenants Brittan and Grant and Corporal Fries were 
awarded Belgian War Crosses. 

The next morning, November 4th, we left Spitaals 
Bosschen at ten o'clock and marched six miles via 
Waereghem to the small village of Abeele, north of 
Oostroosebeke, in accordance with Corps orders 

The Spitaals Bosschen operation revealed in an 
outstanding way the fact that the regiment had 
profited well by its eight days in the Argonne. In 
comparing the two operations, the casualties were 
much lighter, relatively, in the Flanders battle. 
One reason was that the men had learned to take full 
advantage of cover. Another was that they recog- 
nized that filtering through the enemy's line, a few 


men at a time, rather than a frontal attack in numbers, 
was the only successful and life-saving means of 
taking machine-gun nests. Again, they had become 
acquainted with likely looking places for these nests — 
they knew where to look for them. And knowing 
these locations, they did not wait, as in the Argonne, 
to actually see the enemy but opened fire immediately 
on them. They had achieved fire action. 

Again, the regiment was able to move more quickly. 
This was attested by the speed with which it took up 
the march the night of November 2d. Furthermore, 
the different specialties were coordinating better, 
one with the other, than they had ever done before. 
It was a more efficient 364th Infantry which went 
to battle in Flanders than the regiment which went 
over the top in the Meuse-Argonne. But since prac- 
tice makes perfect, our "rest," we soon discovered, 
was to be a resumption of our training. 

And properly so. 



AFTER being relieved from the line, we marched 
back to the small village of Abeele, northwest 
of Wielsbeke, and were billeted in surrounding 
farms. Here we remained four days — "resting." 
As one doughboy defined a rest camp, " it is the place 
where we do all the ' rest' of the work after coming out 
of the lines. " 

Whenever we came out of the line, our training was 
immediately resumed. We profited by the experience 
gained in the lines, perfecting ourselves in the art of 
taking cover, the use of the automatic rifle, infiltration, 
throwing hand grenades, and all the various tactics 
used in modern warfare. Ours was never a rest. 
Just as soon as we had established ourselves in billets, 
had taken baths, and cleaned our clothing and equip- 
ment, our training began anew. At Abeele, as was 
often the case, there were no facilities for bathing, 
so we had to march to Oostroosebeke to perform our 
ablutions. The Germans had converted a factory 
there into a bathhouse and delousing plant and we 
made full use of it. This marked our first experience 
in a delousing plant; we had acquired "cooties" while 
occupying billets formerly used by the Germans, and 
these little souvenirs from our enemies, together with 
the elaborate delousing plants constructed by them, 




belied the contention of the German High Command 
that the imperial Army was cootieless. We soon 
came to believe that with the Germans it was a case 
of "Coot Mit Uns." 

All the time the guns kept up their bombardment 
of the lines to the east. Overhead, on clear nights, 
aeroplanes droned on their way to bomb vital points. 
So huge were the explosions that we could note the 
flashes made by distant bombs a considerable time 
before the sounds arrived. 

On November 5 th, we heard some great news — 
Austria had capitulated! This, together with the 
word, that the American army in the Meuse-Argonne 
had broken the enemy's resistance and was plunging 
forward in great bounds was very cheering. The 
further news came, November 7th, that a delegation 
of German emissaries had crossed the lines under a 
flag of truce to sue for an armistice. At first the news 
was mistakenly circulated that the armistice had 
actually been signed but the erroneous impression 
was soon corrected by the arrival of orders to move 
toward the front the next day. 

At nine o'clock the next morning, November 8th, 
the regiment was once again strung out in column of 
squads, headed for the battle line. In order to co- 
ordinate troop movements, a long stop was made at 
noon on the banks of the winding Lys River. There 
was much speculation as to whether we would ever 
reach the line before the guns were ordered to cease 
firing. But the pounding continued and on we 
marched through the mud and the rain across tem- 
porary bridges and through shell-wrecked villages 
towards the heights of the Scheldt River. As dark- 
ness approached, the sky became lit with fitful flashes. 



Especially brilliant were the star shells which ap- 
peared to throw our marching column into relief on 
the heights, though we were over a mile back of the 
line. At about six o'clock we arrived in the vicinity 
of our old P. C, the village of Oycke, after having 
trudged eleven miles. We found billets in the sur- 
rounding farms and slept the sleep of the just until 

The morning dawned, fair and beautiful. It was 
a strange sight which was presented to one's eyes 
from the top of the huge Flanders windmill crowning 
the heights. A Sabbath-like peace seemed to rest 
upon the countryside thickly dotted with farmhouses 
and villages. But the quiet was broken by desultory 
artillery fire. The sky was bespecked by numerous 
aeroplanes and several observation balloons. One 
half mile to the left could be seen a battery of our 
guns firing from an open field. The flashes from the 
muzzles were plainly visible in the daytime and the 
shells were passing directly over some peasants 
peacefully at work in the fields. Answering shots 
from the German guns on the opposite heights whined 
through the air but fell, for the most part, among the 
buildings along the river, throwing up clouds of dust 
and smoke. The large town of Audenarde suffered 
severely from enemy fire. Some four thousand casual- 
ties had been caused by German gas shells among the 
poor civilians who had not escaped soon enough. 
Later, November 1 1 th, our band did its bit by playing 
cheering music for the returning townspeople, it being 
the first band to play in the city following the exit of 
the Germans. 

Here is Private Sagalowsky's description of a 
rather common sight in Belgium: 


"7. 30 A.M. Whiz! Thud! It was a German 'dud' 
but it pierced the wall around the artillery horses 
which were our neighbors across the way. 

"8 A.M. Investigation of damages done by the 
'dud' revealed one horse killed. 

" 1 1 . 00 A.M. Two Belgians, one wheelbarrow, one 
saw, and two sharp knives. 

" 12. 00 NooNo A fresh supply of meat in the Bel- 
gian butcher shop. 

"12.30 P.M. Company 'A' ration detail eating 
their usual meal of 'Corned Willy' and wondering 
how the Belgians were enjoying their steaks." 

A horse could not be killed by the roadside without 
affording a supply of fresh steaks which would be 
carved from the horse as it lay where it fell. 

In the afternoon, orders were received for a bat- 
talion to relieve the French in the line near Eyne. A 
reconnoissance was accordingly made with the idea 
of sending forward the Third Battalion and the 
Machine Gun Company at dusk. But plans were 
suddenly changed. 

We received orders at 9. 30 in the evening for the 
entire regiment to be ready at 3 a.m. to move forward 
to the town of Audenarde, prepared to cross the river 
at 6 A.M. So a hasty breakfast was snatched at two 
o'clock in the morning and we were off. Down the 
cobblestone road in the chilly hours before dawn we 
made our way to the western outskirts of the city. 
Here the detailed order for the attack was received 
and the officers passed an hour planning their dis- 
positions. Up ahead some machine guns sputtered 
and cannon were firing vigorously on our left. But 
the enemy was not replying with any spirit. Just at 
this time came the welcome news from somewhere 



that at last the Kaiser had seen a great light and had 
abdicated ! 

During the few days we had passed at Abeele, the 
French had made no advance until a short time before 
we contemplated crossing when they had succeeded 
in gaining a foothold on the opposite bank but had 
been held there by hostile fire. We were to pass 
through the French line, relieving them. Then we 
were to attack, drive the enemy from his positions, and 
pursue him. 

The order to move forward came at six o'clock. 
Through the wrecked city we made our way, broken 
window glass crunching beneath our feet. Past the 
damaged Cathedral and the beautiful Hotel de Ville, 
we hurried on to the river crossings. There were three 
of them, for the stream is divided as it flows through 
the eastern part of the city. Temporary footbridges 
had been hastily thrown across the stream by our 
divisional engineers early that morning. Fat German 
beer casks were fastened together and strung across 
the water with planking to provide footing for hob- 
nailed shoes. 

With the exception of the Machine Gun Company, 
the regiment had crossed the river and had completed 
its dispositions for attack by lo a.m. Due to the mule- 
drawn carts, the Machine Gun Company was delayed 
somewhat, but with characteristic ingenuity, they 
swam the animals, carried the guns and equipment 
across on foot, and ferried the gun carts over on a raft. 
The company then caught up with the regiment soon 
after it had deployed in attack formation. 

The order of advance was: Third Battalion and 
364th M. G. Company, in the front line; Second Bat- 
talion in support; First Battalion and Company 



" D," 348th Machine Gun Battalion, in reserve. Two 
platoons from Company "E" and one half platoon 
from Company "D," 348th M. G. Bn., acted as 
liaison of combat with the 41st Division (French) on 
the right. One platoon from Company "M" acted 
as liaison of combat with the 363d Infantry on the 
left. The iSist Brigade was in Division Reserve. 

Regimental P. C. remained a short time in the 
eastern outskirts of Audenarde. The house occupied 
had been hastily vacated by its owners when some 
shells struck it and clothing lay scattered about the 
rooms. But a homelike touch was a stove bearing 
the name, "Jewel," Detroit, Michigan! 

After having begun our forward movement, our 
advance was held up by the Colonel commanding the 
French regiment which we were to relieve. I n moving 
forward past his P. C. which was located about three 
kilometers in rear of his front line, he issued an order 
for our leading battalion, the Third, to withdraw, 
stating that the French were not to be relieved at this 
time. But General V. A, Caldwell, commanding our 
brigade, Colonel Bennett and Major Rase immedi- 
ately went into conference with him and arranged 
for the relief of his regiment in accordance with the 
original attack order. The advance was then resumed 
in the face of long-range, hostile artillery fire, consist- 
ing mostly of gas shells. Even with the shells falling 
near, the natives could be seen going quietly to 
church, apparently oblivious to the fire. 

By six-thirty o'clock in the evening, we had com- 
pleted the relief of part of the French Forty-first 
Division in the front line and planned to attack at six 
o'clock the following morning. The Third Battalion, 
supported by the Machine Gun Company, was in 


line on ihe high ground east of Hoorebeke St. Corneille 
having encountered both machine-gun and artillery 
fire in moving up. The Second Battalion was in 
support at Hoorebeke St. Marie and the First Bat- 
talion, in reserve, at Jagery. Regimental P. C. was 
located in Hoorebeke St. Marie. 

As dusk fell, one could not but be impressed with 
the strangeness of the battle conditions. Cannon 
roared, machine guns stuttered, star-shells ascended 
skyward illuminating everything with their pure, 
white light. But civilians still clung to their villages 
and the sound of distant, Sabbath-evening church 
bells made a strange contrast to the music of war. 

Rolling kitchens had been held up awaiting the 
more solid bridging of the Scheldt but the Machine 
Gun Company looked after its culinary wants even 
in the front line. First, five rabbits were secured 
which, in some way, the Germans had overlooked. 
Then, by prowling around in the fields at dusk, a 
great variety of vegetables were gathered. Rabbits 
and vegetables were placed together in a huge pot 
under which a fire was kept from 9 p.m. until 4 a.m. — 
all this in a sheltered nook with the Germans only a 
few hundred yards away. What a stew that was for 
armistice celebrations! 

Morning of the most eventful day in modern history 
dawned on the 364th Infantry in position for attack. 
Most careful plans had been laid, every disposition 
made, and for once those in charge were resting easy 
because every detail had been attended to in preparing 
for what must prove to be a successful offensive. 
With adequate artillery support and no barbed wire 
to hinder, we were prepared to charge across the tur- 
nip fields in an irresistible onslaught. But at midnight 



had come the order to postpone the attack from six 
until ten o'clock. Then at 8. 15 a.m. came the order, 
"There will be no offensive this morning." Soon the 
great news which sent a world into a delirium of joy 
arrived officially. A suspension of hostilities all along 
the line had been ordered. Firing in our own vicinity 
practically ceased but desultory cannonading could 
be heard to the north till eleven o'clock when every 
gun became silent. From Holland to Switzerland 
the mighty chorus of death died away and millions of 
human beings breathed easier. The eleventh hour 
of the eleventh day of the eleventh month had arrived. 

It took some time to appreciate what had happened. 
We had our minds all set on that drive and even as 
we crouched for the assault, the hand of Peace stayed 
us, and lives that would have been inevitably snuffed 
out were dramatically snatched from death. But 
with our minds somewhat stupefied by the sudden 
transition from War to Peace, we scarcely raised a 
man-sized cheer. Surface exhibitions were not con- 
sonant with our feelings. The silence was more 
demonstrative than noise-making could have been. 

One of the captains called his men together and 
told them he had three announcements to make. 
The first was that there would be no attack that 
morning. The relieving of nerve tension was evinced 
by smiles but no cheers. The second was that the 
armistice had been signed. This announcement was 
worthy of a few cheers but, rumor having passed this 
around on several previous occasions, skepticism 
prevented a full-throated yell. But when the third 
announcement was made, namely that the rolling 
kitchens had arrived, such a mighty cheer went up as 
could possibly be heard in Brussels! 

^f The 




The Germans in ftont of us appeared to be cele- 
brating by beating a hasty retreat for home before 
those bad Yanks would suddenly change their minds 
about "no more hostilities." No cheering could 
be heard but the rattle of homeward-bound rolling 
kitchens was significant. At 1 1 o'clock a patrol 
went forward two and one-half miies without en- 
countering any Huns. 

Our total casualties for the Lys-Scheldt operations 
had been two officers and thirty-two men killed or 
died from wounds, two officers and forty men severely 
wounded, two officers and fifty-six men slightly 
wounded, six men slightly gassed, and one man 
missing. There were no casualties in our regiment 
during the advance and relief of November loth-i ith. 

Twelve hours revealed some of the great reliefs that 
the end of hostilities brought. One was that the 
heavy tin hat might be discarded for as much as a 
moment at a time. Another was that the old gas 
mask might be released from its place as a chest- 
protector and allowed to hang indolently at one's 
side, its duty well done. But the two things that 
brought most pleasure to us were the opportunity 
to talk or yell as loudly as we cared to without bring- 
ing down a shower of shells or bullets, and the ex- 
quisite satisfaction of being able to light a cigarette 
or a cookstove or bonfire any time of the day or 
night we pleased. How blessed to be able to flash a 
pocket lamp on a mean bit of road that one night 
before we would have stumbled along blindly! 

Songs could be heard for the first time in many 
weeks. And why should we not sing? For the long 
night had ended. The Dawn of Justice had broken 
triumphantly upon a struggling and agonizing world. 


We had seen the great cause for which we had left 
home and loved ones far behind, brought to a victori- 
ous issue. All the more grateful were we when we 
remembered that five months previously we would 
have deemed such a speedy victory impossible. And 
so we sang and our hearts were lighter than for many 



WITH the signing of the armistice up popped 
the old question, "Where do we go from 
here?" We had a good running start to- 
wards Germany and many thought that we would 
soon be marching toward the land of sauerkraut and 
erstwhile War Lords. And if peace prevented a dash 
to Brussels in the chariot of Mars, we at least should 
be allowed to don Victory's sandals and make a 
triumphal entry into the city. 

But we must first steady ourselves in patience for 
seven days. So we settled down to routine and 
entered into the spirit of the local celebration. From 
every house floated a fine, large Belgian flag after 
years of enforced retirement. Groups of French and 
Belgian soldiers went singing through the streets or 
gathered in some "estaminet" to celebrate. Groups 
of happy-faced refugees came trudging along with 
their loaded furniture carts adorned with small Bel- 
gian and American flags. Most of these carts were 
drawn by faithful dogs. Unfortunately, all the inhabit- 
ants could not join in the celebration because some 
innocent civilians had just been killed or wounded 
by Hun shells and others were dying from an epidemic 
of influenza. 
The regiment was reviewed, Friday, November 



15th, by Major General Johnston. In an address to 
us, he stated, among other things, that our Division 
had been one of two American divisions to have been 
honored by being sent to Belgium, and had the war 
continued, Belgium would have been cleared of every 
German in another month. I n this connection we were 
later proud to receive General Order No. 31, Sixth 
French Army, reading as follows : 

"In addressing the divisions of the United States 
of America which were covered with glory at the 
offensive of Chateau-Thierry, I said that the order of 
the commander was always executed no matter what 
the difficulties to overcome or the sacrifices to be 

"I have found the same spirit of duty and that 
willing discipline which makes soldiers valiant and 
armies victorious, in the Thirty-seventh and Ninety- 
first divisions. 

"The enemy was ordered to hold 'to the death' 
on the heights between the Lys and the Escaut 
(Scheldt). The American troops of these divisions, 
acting in concert with French divisions of the Army 
of Flanders, routed them on October 31, 1918, and 
after hard fighting, threw them back upon the Escaut. 

" Daring afterward a military operation of unheard- 
of audacity, the American units crossed the flooded 
Escaut under enemy fire and held their positions on the 
opposite bank in spite of counter-attacks. 

"Glory to such troops and their leaders. They 
have valiantly contributed to the liberation of Belgian 
territory and to the final victory. 

Their great nation can be proud of them. 

The General commanding the Army 

" Degoutte." 




French cavalry, infantry, and artillery could be 
seen pouring eastward toward Brussels and possibly 
Germany. And on November iSth, we were sure we 
had joined the procession. At 7 a.m., we were moving 
istward in what appeared to be a triumphal march, 
ags flying and band playing. A cold snap had 
developed and as snow began to fall, we recalled the 
statement made on the Olympic, July 14th, that the 
one thing for which the Allies were praying was for 
the fall of snow to stop the Germans. " It will take 
more than the fall of snow to stop the Huns the way 
they are going now," we thought to ourselves. 

It was only a short march to Audenhove-St. Marie 
where we remained for four days, side-tracked while 
the French pushed on into Brussels. The regiment 
was not to march into the Belgian capital to our dis- 
gust and to the disappointment of the Belgian people. 
The Americans were represented in the triumphal 
entry by a small group and a few flags. But that was 
all. We could sympathize with those ancient dough- 
boys of the King of France who were marched up a 
hill only to be marched down again. 

But the hospitality of the Flemish people reconciled 
us somewhat to our sudden stop after having de- 
veloped "full speed ahead." The villages were in 
festive attire with signs "welkoming" the Allies and 
with flag-draped pictures of the gallant King and 
Queen who were about to be restored to their throne. 
A captain asked at a convent if he might borrow a 
key to the barn for a few minutes. The good Sisters 
cleared a large room of its desks, carried in straw for 
bedding and set up a stove, and then invited him to 
bring his men in there when all he had asked for was a 
key to the barn! The Kaiser had been in the same 


town ten days previously but the welcome he got was 
a welcome to get out. He addressed his soldiers in this 
town, urging them to hold fast but they did not even 
salute him in return for his words, according to what 
the Belgians told us. 

We took our departure Friday, November 22d, and 
turning northward marched to a town called Hillegem. 
This was for the purpose of joining another French 
Army Corps which was all of great delight and interest 
to us since it necessitated jotting another number 
down in our notebooks — about all that a French 
Army Corps meant to us. But having reached Hille- 
gem, we were both "farthest north" and "farthest 
east" that most of us would ever be again. Our 
program now called for a little hike of nearly seventy- 
five miles back to the Dunkirk area. 

In the town of Hillegem we found further evidences 
of an altogether too common experience in Belgium — 
the robbing of the townspeople by the Germans of all 
blankets and cloth containing wool. While we were 
in the village, the Sisters of the convent were busy 
unearthing a quantity of wool which they had buried 
to conceal from the Huns. 

On Saturday, November 23d, the regiment marched 
westward over the cobblestone roads and through 
shell-pierced villages finally recrossing the Scheldt 
River and settling down in the farming area near 
Goedleven. Such marches of twelve miles or so were 
always made in the forenoon, leaving the afternoon for 
billeting purposes. Midday meals were not on the 
schedule. Stops of a longer or shorter duration in 
villages made the trip easier in one respect but in 
another respect these halts aggravated matters, for 
we would no sooner get billeted in a village and get 



the regiment functioning properly when we would 
have to break up housekeeping and move. 

In the Goedleven area, we had the pleasure of 
joining another French Army Corps — so we were 
told — but the thing we shall remember a great deal 
longer was the finding of a portion of the area assigned 
to us filled up with French artillerymen. Conse- 
quently, we were short of billets. And some officers 
found themselves bedded down on the stone floor of a 
kitchen^a room twelve by fourteen feet and used as a 
kitchen and dining-room by a family of six. This 
room was always filled with soldiers drawn to it by 
the odor of hot waffles which the good lady of the 
house was almost continuously engaged in cooking. 
She charged a flat price, the payment of which entitled 
the soldier to eat waffles to the limit of his capacity. 
Had she known fully of the average American dough- 
boy's appetite she would not have entered into such 
an unprofitable contract. This family had possessed a 
horse and wagon which had not only been used for 
farming purposes but had been rented out at intervals 
to provide an income. A cow had supplied the small 
children with a good deal of their food, but the hard- 
hearted Huns had taken both the horse and cow along 
with them and the family was in a condition of 
anxiety. This was but one instance of many which we 
observed. All livestock that had not been hidden in 
cellars or similar places was taken from the Belgian 
people. The men of certain ages were also compelled 
to accompany the Germans toward the Rhineland. 
We were shown a hole under a woodpile where the 
man of the house lay in hiding for ten days and nights 
while his women-folk fed him. 

A memorial service was held in this region in com- 


memoration of comrades who fell upon Flanders 
fields. A Thanksgiving service was also held on 
Sunday in gratitude for the great victory. 

We resumed our march on November 26th, cover- 
ing fifteen miles. The cobblestone roads, because of 
constant war-usage, were rough and hard on our feet. 
Everywhere the railways had been systematically 
dynamited, charges having been placed every few 
rods, the twisted rails sticking up in fantastic curves 
and shapes. But the plodding Flemish people were 
methodically mending the shell-holes in their houses, 
gathering their turnip crops, and facing the future 
with optimism. 

We were privileged to pass eight days in what we 
called our first real town — a town where we could 
actually buy things — Meulebeke. It was a center for 
exquisite Belgian laces and many a piece of finery was 
purchased for the girl back home. We saw the women 
making lace in their homes. They worked for hours 
at a time, operating the bobbins as dexterously as a 
typist handles the keys of her typewriter. Needle- 
lace, which was also made there, was too intricate a 
process for us to appreciate. 

Thanksgiving Day the Companies did the best 
they could in securing something special for dinner, 
but many pined with an empty heart (and emptier 
stomach) for good old days in the States. Here are 
the two menus enjoyed by Company "A" on two 
successive Thanksgiving Days as outlined by Sergeant 
Harry R. Under: 



















COFFEE, BLACK ENCORE! Work the pump handle 

BREAD encore: Eat the sawdust on the 

JAM Saved for three weeks for this 

Special Occasion. 


On the evening of Thanksgiving Day, an enter- 
tainment was given in an old woolen mill. The 
principal obstacle was lack of illumination but the 
commander of a French motor truck train kindly 
loaned the lights from his machines. A stage was 
built, a piano secured, and a program was given con- 
sisting of music, monologues, boxing, and "stunts," 
with two Frenchmen taking part in songs. One item 
we thanked the Germans for at Meulebeke was an 
excellent bathing and delousing plant. Full use was 
made of it. 

Numbers of ex-prisoners began to drift in from 
Germany. They were of various nationalities, Russian, 
British, Belgian, French, and Italian, and even one 
American, an aviator. Most of them appeared to be 
in need of new clothing but few gave evidence of 

We made a short march, December 4th, to the 
vicinity of Coolscamp. Here we came upon an atro- 
cious piece of Hun barbarity. A mine had been 
exploded under the large church tower in such a way 
as to cause it to fall squarely down upon the middle of 
the church its entire le^ngth, completely demolishing 
it. Other beautiful churches in this area met a similar 
fate. There was absolutely not the slightest pretext 
except venomous German hatred, riled by defeat. 
Knowing the religious zeal of the Flemish people, 
the brutal Huns had struck at their most cherished 
institution. There the church lay in fragments, its 
beautiful mural paintings in a thousand pieces, a 
ghastly reminder of the frightfulness with which the 
Germans planned to win the war but which was in 
reality one of the strongest contributing causes of 
their downfall. 


The notary public told us of being bound to a tree 
together with the other town officials, and threatened 
with death when the Germans invaded the country 
in 1914. He was later compelled to be the virtual 
slave of German officers who were billeted in his house. 
Later they changed their tactics and tried to curry 
favor with him for "after-the-war" purposes, They 
helped themselves to $200,000 worth of canned goods 
stored in his cannery. Then they turned to him and 
said, " Now after the war, we — you and we Germans — , 
will run this plant together and we shall sell all 
the products to Berlin. England shall have none!" 
He also showed us photographs of relatives who 
had been shot down in cold blood by the Huns — 
civilians, they were, who never had the semblance of 
a trial. 

An order came, December 5 th, for the Commanding 
Officer, one other officer, two squads of men and the 
two color sergeants, bearing the colors, to proceed 
through Brussels and Louvain to Germany where 
they, together with representatives from other regi- 
ments, would represent the division in a triumphal 
ceremony before the tomb of Charlemagne in Aix- 
la-Chapelle. The trip was duly made by Colonel 
Bennett, Lieutenant George J. Ranes, and the 
enlisted men, and the shade of the ruler of the an- 
cestors of the modern French heard the hobnailed 
shoes of American soldiers clattering about his ancient 

We continued our march on December 6th, reach- 
ing the village of Hooglede, eight and one half miles 
away. On the way some huge German graveyards 
were observed, — cemeteries to which the enemy had 
brought his dead from the Ypres fighting. 


Hooglede was so badly shot up that we had diffi- 
culty in billeting the regiment. The former inhabit- 
ants had had more than a month in which to return, 
but only eleven were back and these were working 
hard to make their battered domiciles fit for human 
habitation. As an indication of the religious zeal of 
the Flemish, we noticed that they had begun to repair 
the church before the town. The Germans had 
planted a mine of Minnenwerfer shells in front of the 
tower to blow it down and destroy the entire edifice 
as they had done at Coolscamp. But fortunately the 
Allies had swept ahead, captured the village, and 
unearthed the mine before the Huns had a chance to 
explode it. However, the artillery had done consider- 
able damage to the structure; shells had also ploughed 
up some of the bones in the once peaceful churchyard. 
The Germans had evidently maintained a railhead at 
this place and huge supplies of cement, barbed wire, 
steel doors for pill-boxes, and other war material had 
been left behind. Concrete pill-boxes were built both 
in the village itself, screened by buildings, and in the 
open space in front of the town. 

As the echoes of the Star Spangled Banner floated 
through the roofless houses of the village that evening, 
they aroused a train of meditation. One thought of 
the changing population of this place, of the happy 
families that had once peopled these buildings, then 
of the German soldiers (for it had been used as a 
billeting town by the German army) who slunk into 
the placarded cellars when the whine of a righteous 
foe's bombing 'plane approached; then of the French 
poilus who gained the village by hard fighting and 
remained long enough to leave considerable evidence 
of their occupation, and now of the doughboys, far 



from home, standing at attention with thousands of 
their comrades on the far-flung battle line, their feet 

1 Europe but their hearts at home. And the notes of 
the anthem awakened another train of thought — 
reminiscences of all the different and strange places 
we had stood to attention at its martial music: Camp 
Lewis, hot, cold, dusty or rainy; Camp Merritt, and 

1 many a field and village of France and Flanders — 
wherever we went, Retreat went along — except into 
battle — never there! 

Saturday, December 7th, was a day of fatiguing 
march. We covered nearly eighteen miles but that 
does not tell the complete story. It was across the 
old Ypres battlefield with the roads rough and the 
scenery uninspiring. Our route this time lay along 
the northern edge of the Houthulst Forest which had 
long been a German stronghold filled with intrenched 
fortifications. Over the country where the enemy 
first used poison gas and where the brave British, 
French, and Belgian soldiers stayed his mighty thrusts 
towards the Channel ports, we wended our way. 
Desolation everywhere. But suddenly the blasted, 
swampy, land gave way to green fields and villages 
and cattle and all that goes to make up a Flemish 
countryside. We had passed beyond the land 
scorched by the flame of war and we rested our packs 
that night in the village of Oostvleteren where happy 
children played in the streets. 

The following day, December 8th, we pressed on to 
the area where ostensibly we were to await transpor- 
tation to the Le Mans, or Embarkation Area. This 
march carried us out of Belgium, after a fifty-day stay 
in that martyred country. Now we could sing {and 
enjoy it) Private Ray W. Hays's song: 


Bring the good old bugle, boys, we'll sing another 

Jazz 'em up a melody, a thousand kilos long. 
We'll sing it as we used to sing it, fifty thousand 

While we were marching through Belgium. 


Hurrah ! Hurrah ! We sing the Jubilee; 
Hurrah ! Hurrah ! We set the Belgians free 
Just as we sang the chorus from Brussels to the sea 
While we were marching through Belgium. 

How the Huns did scatter when they heard that 

fearful blast; 
How the joyful natives bade us eat their small repast. 
And how the juicy turnips even started from the

And we went marching through Belgium. 

Being now behind the old Allied line, it was in- 
teresting to compare the country with the German 
back areas. The two most noticeable features (both 
temporary) were the absence of severed telephone and 
telegraph lines, and the presence of livestock. But 





it seems that the British had given more attention to 
the erection of barracks (Nisson huts) than the Ger- 
mans. Also the inhabitants behind the old German 
lines, having felt the heavy hand of the Hun, and 
knowing from what thralldom they had been released, 
were more eager to do for us than those behind the old 
Allied lines. At least so testifies Captain Filmer of 
the First Battalion, who was compelled to make peace 
with a madame and the poker she bore uplifted and 
menacing, before he could establish his Battalion Aid 
station in her home in our new town of Herzeele. But 
more than four years of billeting motley armies would 
grow stale for anyone. 

The companies occupied here the worst civilized 
billeting area of their career, due to the indescribable 
mud. Each farm where Nisson huts were occupied 
was a quagmire. To add to our woe, word came that 
the French General desired us to march halfway across 
France to the Le Mans area! 

But our stay in this area was enlivened by a few 
bright spots. Dunkirk was only twenty-four miles 
away and both passes and trucks were made available 
for us to visit that interesting city. Some also went 
to the historic hill. Mount Kemmel, where in the 
spring of 1918 one valorous French regiment was 

And then Christmas came, No available building 
was large enough to accommodate a company, so a 
stage for an entertainment was built in the village 
square and we prayed for a bright day. 1 1 came. The 
boxing and wrestling and other entertainment features 
were greatly enjoyed. But the most unique part of 
the program was the distribution of oranges and 
presents to the three hundred kiddies of the village 




by a Santa Claus in whiskers and full regalia! Perhaps 
he was the first Santa the children had ever seen. 
At least they were happy. 

The following evening, a moving picture machine, 
installed on a trailer, projected pictures onto a screen 
suspended from a building in the public square. 
These were the first movies the regiment had wit- 
nessed in France. 

One of the peculiar customs of these people living 
in the French section of old Flanders was their use of 
language. French is the official language and must 
be learned by the children in schools, but in their own 
homes, Flemish is spoken although the people cannot 
read it. 

It was while in this area that we were issued the 
official insignia, a miniature fir tree. We immediately 
stitched these trees on to the left shoulder of our 
blouses and overcoats. 

Beginning December 22d, our regiment furnished 
a guard detail to patrol the Franco- Belgian border. 
We were not compelled to devote many days to this 
for on December 30th we began moving by train to the 
longed-for embarkation area. 

We marched to the railhead at Rexpoede and en- 
joyed another encore of the "40 Hommes, 8 Chev- 
aux," "hit" of the A. E. F. But we had learned a 
few tricks by this time such as using a blanket sus- 
pended from the car sides as a hammock. And, be- 
sides, we were headed in the direction of home. So 
who cared if it was eighty Hommes and sixteen 
Chevaux — if the engine stopped, we would ride the 
Chevaux through to Brest! 

The route for the majority of the regimental trains 
was through familiar country — Calais, Boulogne, 

rWITH THE 364th INFANTRY 147 1 

Abbeville, to Amiens and then through Rouen and I 

Chartres. It was interesting to note the cosmo- J 

politan character of the box cars forming the freight I 

trains. There was rolling stock labeled French, J 

British, Belgian, Italian, German, and American. 
These were matched by the conglomeration of la- 
borers and soldiers to be seen along the way. Besides 
the ever-present poilu and Tommy there were Bel- 
gians, Italians, Portuguese, Moroccans, Chinese, and 

We passed many trains loaded with ex-prisoners 
just getting back from Germany. Some of them told 
us, while we were stopped at a siding, that they had 
been in Germany ever since 1914. En route, we were 
informed of a slightly different destination from the 
one we had presumed would be ours. We detrained 
at La Ferte-Bernard and began scattering out over 
the countryside like an army deploying for battle. 
We found that our regimental area covered a region 
nearly as large as the entire divisional area in our old 
training region. We proceeded to occupy nine vil- 
lages as follows: Regimental Headquarters, Third 
Battalion Headquarters, Headquarters Company, a,nd 
Companies "I," "K," and "L" in Nogent-le-Ber- 
nard; Company "M" in Rouperroux; Headquarters, 
First Battalion, Companies "A" and "B" in St.- 
Aubin-des-Coudrais; Companies "C" and "D" in 
St.-Georges-du-Rosay; Headquarters, Second Battal- 
ion in Souvigne-sur-Meme (afterwards changed to 
St. Germain-de-la-Coudre); Companies "E" and "F" 
in Aveze {later moved to St.-Germain-de-la-Coudre); 
Company "G" in Preval; Company "H" in the 
Castle of Preval; Machine Gun Company in Dehault; 
and the Supply Company in La Chapelle-du-Bois. 


The inhabitants came running out to view our ap- 
proach and we afterwards learned that we were the 
first organized body of troops to be quartered in this 
area since the time of Napoleon. 



HERE we were at last in that dreamed-of, hoped- 
for embarkation area with nothing to look 
forward to but going home ! On looking about, 
we found ourselves in a beautiful section of France — 
rich, rolling farm lands demarcated by hedges and 
wooded in spots. But the longing for home, made 
more acute by the absence of fighting or prospects of 
fighting, was quite evident throughout the regiment. 
A man, of Company "B," whose home is in Fresno, 
made the remark, " This is a very beautiful country." 
Another from the oil fields of Central California 
answered quickly, "Beautiful! Well, it may be, but 
the Mojave Desert would look a darn sight more 
beautiful to me." 

This area differed from our former area near Chau- 
mont. Here were to be found many farmhouses 
separate from the villages. The villages themselves 
appeared cleaner and were without that odor emanat- 
ing from the prized fertilizer which, in the old area, 
graced the immediate surroundings of each little home. 
The villages dated back to the Royalist days of France 
and even to earlier periods. The churches, particu- 
larly, suggested centuries of age. 

Our military program in this area had in view the 
bringing of the regiment to the highest state of effi- 



ciency and drill. We were to be polished up, cleaned 
up, re-outfitted, and sent home! 

A pleasant concession to officers and men was the 
granting of leaves of absence and furloughs. Some 
enlisted men had enjoyed this privilege after coming 
out of the Argonne battle. But now those who had 
not were issued the coveted passes as rapidly as 
possible. Paris was the Mecca to which all turned 
longing eyes but travel in that direction was dis- 
couraged by military authorities. Leave centers had 
been established for the men of the A. E. F. in various 
sections of France but the one most visited by men 
of our regiment was St. Malo, on the Brittany Coast. 
At this famous resort, the men had a chance to eat 
and sleep to their hearts' content — there was no 
Reveille or Mess Call. Nice was the city which 
beckoned the majority of the officers. Le Mans 
was near and many passes were granted for this 

Every effort was made to provide reading rooms 
and recreation centers. Local schoolhouses were 
utilized in the evenings and in two towns Y. M, C. A. 
tents were erected where regular entertainments were 
given. Athletics were promoted among all the com- 
panies of the regiment. Educational classes were 
established in such subjects as History, English, 
French, Civics, and Business Arithmetic. Instructors 
were secured from among the men and classes held 
in the afternoon, the men being excused from drill. 
A number of officers and men received permission to 
attend universities in Europe. 

Cold weather developed toward the latter part of 
January. Snow fell and we hugged the fire. But fires 
were few and far between. Wood and coal were scarce 

Seugeant U-ovd M. Seibert, Company F, 364TH 1 

The President, in the name o£ Congress, under date of 1 
11 January, igig, awarded the medal of honor to Serjeant ■ 
Lloyd M. Seibert, Company F, 364th Inf'., for conspicuous ■ 
gallantry and intrepidity, above and beyond the call of duty ■ 
in action with the enemy near Epinonville, France, 26 Sep- ■ 
tember, 1918. Suffering from illness, Sei^eant Seibert re- 1 
mained with his platoon and led his men with the h^faest 1 
courage and leadership under heavy shell and machine-gun 1 
fire. With two other soldiers, Sergeant Seibert charged a J 
machine gun emplacement in advance of his company he, ■ 
himself, killing one of tlic enemy with a ahotgiin and capturing 1 
two others. In this encounter, he was wounded but he, 1 
nevertheless, continued in action and when a withdrawal was V 
ordered, he returned with the last unit, assisting a wounded M 
comrade. Later in the evening he volunteered and carried 1 
in wounded until he fainted from exhaustion. 1 


rand stoves scarcer, but an active life kept us from 
falling victims to a winter epidemic. 
In this area, the merry little game called "chasing 
the coolie" was indulged in with more vim and vigor 
than ever. The reason was not difficult to explain. 
We not only did not bear great affection for the mascot 
of the army but his presence would prevent our 
boarding that longed-for transport. So by means of 
improvised shower baths and Serbian barrels, we led 
him a merry chase until we became known as the 

I cleanest regiment in the Ninety-first. Locating the 
"coot" on light-colored undershirts required some 
skill. The champion "shirt reader" of the regiment 
was Private Woelke, of the Medical Detachment, 
who could pick out a cootie from an undershirt with 
the same certainty that quick-silver extracts bits of 
gold from the ore. 

Cooties are scrappers; it is not astonishing that they 
played such a vigorous part in the war. Company 
"A" staged one of the most hotly contested pugilistic 
encounters of the regiment's athletic program; a free- 
for-all fight between six cooties. They weighed in at 
I the ringside at one-hundredth of a gram each. There 
were such champions as John L., Fitzsimmons, Cor- 
bett, Jeffries, Jack Johnson, and Jess Willard, The 
ring was a mirror; the fans a cordon of doughboys. 
The contestants sparred, side-stepped, and blocked, 
each intent on a K. O. on jaw or solar plexus. After 
forty rounds, the gong rang and amid great applause. 
Lieutenant Bud Sawyer awarded the championship 
shirt to John L., the greatest come-back in the history 
of the ring. 

The regiment had touched the shores of England, 
July 19th, so that six months had been passed in 


Europe by January 19th. This entitled us to wear 
gold service chevrons. An order was issued and we 
proudly stitched this insignia on the left forearm of 
blouse and overcoat. We were now veterans of the 
A. E. F. 

We received word in January that the Commander- 
in-Chief of the A. E. F., General John J. Pershing, 
was coming to inspect the Division. On the morning 
of January 27th we were off in motor trucks, at seven 
o'clock, bound for a field near Ige. After leaving the 
trucks and waiting at the village until 10 a.m., we 
moved off to the appointed place. Here we waited 
till shortly after i p.m. in the snow, eating some sand- 
wiches we carried along for the occasion and stamp- 
ing our feet to keep warm. 

Suddenly, several swift U. S. A. automobiles drew 
up and the Chief and his staff stepped out. Mounting 
a horse and accompanied by one other officer, he 
quickly made the rounds of the Division, drawn up in 
line of regiments, mass formation, with the bands 
playing Hail to the Chief/ He then dismounted and 
began a careful rank to rank inspection, passing along 
each rank of every company of the Division. Ques- 
tions such as, "Where are you from?" or "Where 
were you wounded?" were asked of doughboys as the 
General hurried on his rounds. Next, those to be 
decorated were drawn up in front of the Division, 
accompanied by the colors. There had been a previous 
distributing of honors in the Division — the presenta- 
tion of Belgian War Crosses by a Belgian General, 
representing King Albert, at the Lovie Chateau, near 

The whole Division stood at attention while the 
citations were read and General Pershing himself 



pinned on the medals and crosses and congratulated 
the recipients. His manly hand-grasp was in keeping 
with the big stalwart soldier that he is. Sergeant 
Lloyd M. Siebert, of Company "F," our regiment, 
was one of two members of our Division to receive 
the Congressional Medal of Honor, the highest award 
for gallantry given by the United States. Company 
"K," of our regiment, received more Distinguished 
Service Crosses than any other company of the Divi- 
sion. The Division was awarded 133 D. S. C.'s. 

The Division next marched past the reviewing 
stand. As the column swung past the General, each 
man proudly squared his shoulders, for the appraising 
eyes of his Chief were upon him. After the last pla- 
toon had passed, the officers assembled before the 
reviewing stand to receive the General's message to 
the Division. He spoke with pride of the accomplish- 
ments and the clean record of the Ninety-first and 
urged us to carry the same high ideals back with us 
into civil life. " May you have a safe journey home. 

After vigorous handclapping, we were off, — not for 
home as yet. But each felt that one more milestone 
had been passed on the way home and, arriving back 
at our billets late, in a drizzling rain, we comforted 
ourselves as we thought of a day well spent. 

Some time later the following communication was 
received by the Commanding General of our Division 
from Commander-in-Chief General John J. Pershing: 

"It gives me great pleasure to extend to you and 
the officers and men of the Ninety-first Division my 
compliments upon their splendid record in France. 

"Arriving on July 12th, the Division was thrown 
into the active fighting in the Meuse-Argonne offen- 



sive, without previous training on the line. From 
September 26th to October 3d it was actively engaged 
in this offensive, making an advance of thirteen kilo- 
meters against strong opposition, capturing the towns 
of Very, Gesnes, and Epinonville. When the Division 
was withdrawn on October 3d, the 181st Brigade 
remained in the battle line until October 12th, its 
units operating with the 32d and ist Divisions. In 
the middle of October the Division was attached 
to the 7th French Army Corps of the 6th French 
Army in Flanders. Between October 31st and No- 
vember 2d, the Division made an advance of eleven 
kilometers, capturing the town of Audenarde. Cross- 
ing the Scheldt River on November loth and nth, 
the Division was in pursuit of the enemy when the 
armistice ended hostilities. 

" It was gratifying to see your troops in such good 
physical shape but still more so to know that the moral 
tone of all ranks is so high, which it is hoped will 
continue even after their return to civil life." 

In commenting upon this communication Major 
General Johnston said: 

"This letter is a fitting climax to the various com- 
mendatory letters and orders received from American 
and French Commanders under whom the Division 
has served, as it comes from the officer who organized 
and ably commanded the greatest army that has ever 
fought for the United States." 

The news had come to us, in January, of the death 
of Colonel Theodore Roosevelt. iVIemorial services 
were conducted throughout the regiment, February 
gth, paying tribute to the distinguished ex-President 
whose thorough Americanism has always appealed 
to the American soldier. 


"Whoofs," Company "C's" pronounciation of 
oeufs (eggs), were more plentiful in this area than in 
our first training area. But it was just as difficult as 
ever to coax a pullet into the "slum" pot. The " Vin 
Blanc Squad," of Company "B," experiencing the 
chronic financial embarrassment of the A. E. F., 
decided to select by lot one of their tried and true, to 
procure a likely hen. "Heavy" pulled the short 
straw and started out in the darkness. Fortune smiled 
on him and soon he was returning with a big fat hen 
under his blouse. Unfortunately, he ran into the 
Officer of the Guard. 

"What have you under your coat, Corporal?" 

"Nothing, sir." 

"What makes it stick out like that?" 

With a loud squawk, the hen joined the conversa- 
tion. " Heavy," coughing desperately, slapped at his 
chest to drown the noise. 

"Corporal, where did you get that chicken?" 

" 1 bought it, sir." 


The Corporal was at a loss, and admitted that he 
had secretly enticed the struggling hen from the coop. 
Ordered to take it back, he departed with a cheery, 
"Very well, sir." 

The "Vin Blanc Squad" had chicken that night. 

The following morning, "Heavy" went on sick re- 
port. In examining him. Doctor Filmer ordered him 
to pull up his shirt. A shower of white feathers floated 
to the floor. And "Heavy" was marked "Duty," 

The Band did its part in this area to keep us cheered 
up while waiting to go home, by playing concerts in the 
different towns. Members of the First Battalion tell 
this story in this connection: 



" The Band was always introducing something new 
in the line of melodious strains, but the best thing it 
ever introduced was through no fault of its own. It 
happened at St. Aubin, where the members of Com- 
panies "A" and "B" were being entertained with a 
concert. Two or three numbers had been rendered 
and applauded. Then the Band started to play The 
Whistler and His Dog. No sooner were the first notes 
sounded than a diminutive mule hitched to a cart 
nearby, and entirely unnoticed by those present, 
joined in with a melodious sort of bray. And he kept 
it up until the piece was finished. Either that was his 
favorite piece or his repertoire was very limited, for it 
was the only one in which he joined. But, judging 
from the applause, he would be a big asset as a regular 
member. (No reflections on the Band, please.) " 

Many of our old comrades who had been in the 
hospital suffering from wounds or sickness during our 
activities in Belgium, rejoined the regiment in this 
area. We gave them a royal welcome. But we 
thought also of those whom we were not to welcome 
back. They had paid the full price. And they will 
never be forgotten. 

The ties of friendship formed in army life are among 
the strongest in the world. A few men spent their 
furloughs in returning to the old battlefields to find a 
"buddy's" grave. And when men passed away in 
the Embarkation area, the extent to which American 
soldiers will go in expressing their tribute of esteem and 
comradeship was clearly revealed. For example, 
thirty-five men from Company "D" went twenty- 
five miles to attend the funeral of a private, and 
nearly one hundred men from Company " G" marched 
a round-trip distance of fourteen miles to pay their 


last respects to a dead comrade — a private. Friend- 
ships made in the army bear the stamp of eternity. 

Fortunately the Paris editions of the New York 
Herald, the Chicago Tribune and the Daily Mail were 
available in this area. These, together with the 
doughboys' friend — The Stars and Stripes, kept us 
informed of world events. We watched closely the 
deliberations of the Peace Conference, realizing that a 
world was in the remaking, and that this Conference 
was responsible for preserving the fruits of Victory 
we had won, whether by the formation of a League of 
Nations or otherwise. 

It was quite the style in the Embarkation area to 
burn the midnight oil over paper work. Every type- 
writer was pressed into service, for the paper work 
must be completed before the regiment could step 
aboard a transport. The Personnel Office, under 
Captain C. J. Sheppard, worked day and night in 
tabulating the officers and men according to the camps 
in the United States in which they were to be mustered 
out. It was discovered that, due to replacements, the 
regiment had become an "All-American" organiza- 
tion, for every state in the Union, as well as Alaska 
and the District of Columbia, were represented. De- 
tachments were to be sent to twelve camps in addi- 
tion to Camp Kearny for purposes of demobilization. 

In looking back over our experiences in France and 
Belgium, we found that the regimental P. C. had 
changed locations during the active months on an 
average of once every two days. The regiment had 
marched under heavy pack some three hundred and 
twenty-five miles. This refers only to marches be- 
tween stations. Ask any doughboy how much farther 
we marched. 




The Ninety-first Division was designated to sail 
in March from the Port of St. Nazaire. The regiment 
began marching to and entraining at La Ferte-Bernard 
on March 18, 1919. We were surprised to find that 
our old "Hommes 40, Chevaux 8" friends had given 
place to good U. S. A. freight cars, fitted for the pur- 
pose of carrying troops. The engines were American, 
and so were the crews. A night run in the " Hommes 
60" (the standard load for the American box cars) 
carried us to the coast. 

Here we were assigned first to Camp No. 2, where 
we were given a physical inspection. We were then 
passed on to Camp No. i , where we supposed we would 
be detained for some days, but, due to the splendid 
physical condition of the men, which was freely com- 
mented upon by the camp officials as establishing a 
record, we were placed on the first transport available. 
This meant that our stay in camp was limited to 
two days. Our famous regimental theatrical cast 
which had been touring the S. O. S. area, presented its 
performance to the unbounded delight of a vast 
audience the first evening we spent in Camp No. 1 . 

Satisfactory inspections were made, records ex- 
amined and approved, heaucoup francs changed into 
good American dollars, and we were off for the docks 
on the way to America by 7.30 o'clock the morning 
of March 22d. Regimental and 3d Battalion Head- 
quarters together with Companies "A." "B," "1," 
"K," "L," "M," Headquarters Machine Gun and 
Supply, and the Medical Detachment were scheduled 
to sail on the naval transport Siboney, the other com- 
panies to follow on the next boat. 

After partaking of refreshments served by the 
Y. M. C. A. at the docks, we began one of the greatest 




ascents of our lives — up the gangplank bound for 
Home! And when, in the afternoon at 4. 45 o'clock, 
the tugs began pulling and pushing the vessel around 
in position to head into the locks and thence out to 
sea, it seemed too good to be true. " Pinch me to see 
if I am awake or dreaming." yelled one doughboy to 
his buddy. He was not dreaming, for the gathering 
dusk found us out on the ocean waving farewell to 
the pilot's boat and to the fast-disappearing French 
coast. At last we were sure we were headed for 
"God's Country!" 

We were somewhat surprised to be ordered to wear 
life-preservers throughout the trip, and to see the 
ship's paravanes in position. Though the hostile 
submarine had been banished from the sea, the deadly 
derelict mine still remained a menace to navigation. 

The Siboney displaced 11,250 tons with a ship's 
company of 476 men. There were 3293 troops aboard, 
of which 21 19 belonged to the 364th Infantry. Dough- 
boys and gobs got on famously together. Instead of 
hammocks, such as were used aboard the Olympic, 
standees were provided for the troops, much to their 
relief. The ship was thoroughly modern, and was kept 
in a good clean condition. Besides our own regimental 
band, there was a naval orchestra to furnish music. 
Movies were a feature of the daily program, boxing 
and wrestling matches were staged, and a daily paper 
made a great hit. And when grapefruit and scrambled 
eggs appeared in the mess kits, the vote in favor of a 
U. S. transport was unanimous! 

A very important step was taken on board ship in 
the tentative formation of a 364th Infantry Associa- 
tion to perpetuate the ideals fought for in the Great 
War, to foster the fellowship which had its inception 



in the service, and to furnish a means whereby the 
members might in civil life mutually assist one another 
and especially the families of those comrades who had 
fallen or been disabled in service. This was planned 
to be the family group in the two larger groups — that 
of the Ninety-first Division Association, and the 
American Legion. 

The following General Order issued by our Regi- 
mental Commander on April 14, 1919, two days prior 
to the departure from Camp Mills of the majority of 
the regiment to parade in Los Angeles, California, and 
to be demobilized at Camp Kearney, brings this 
history to a fitting close. 

"It is with a feeling of pride and appreciation that 
the Commanding Officer records in General Orders the 
accomplishments and meritorious service of the officers 
and men of the regiment. 

"Organized at Camp Lewis, Washington, September 
4, 1917, under the able leadership of Colonel Elmer 
W. Clark, and trained for ten months under stringent 
requirements, the regiment met the supreme test in 
the Meuse-Argonne, September 26, 1918, with coura- 
geous and admirable fortitude. In that memorable 
offensive the regiment acquitted itself with glory, 
and, after an advance of nearly thirteen kilometers 
against devastating fire of enemy machine guns and 
artillery, only the orders from superior authority 
checked the heroic advance. 

"With the same splendid zeal and courage, in the 
off'ensive against the strongly fortified positions of the 
enemy in the Spitaals Bosschen Wood, Belgium, on 
the night of October 3ist-November 1, 1918, all 
resistance was broken and our gallant units pressed 


closely the rapidly retreating enemy until the Scheldt 
River had been successfully crossed. The signing of 
the Armistice closed a glorious and victorious cam- 
paign — the never faltering lines facing the ultimate 
goal with the same determination and confidence. 

"On the eve of relinquishing my command, I ex- 
tend to each officer and man my sincere expressions 
of appreciation and thanks for their loyalty, their 
bravery, and their unwavering devotion to the Nation's 
highest duty. 

"This order will be read to each organization and 
detachment at the first formation after its receipt. 

"Colonel, 3641}) Infantry,
