Digging Season, Western Front, 2015

As it is the digging season we are posting this gem from The Leadswinger, the journal of the 1/3 West Riding Field Ambulance, dated 27 November 1915 (we should have been quicker off the mark to hit the centenary, but the alternative was putting it off for 98 years). Further to earlier discussions on Wipers and other names for Ypres/Ieper, it’s noticeable that this early soldiers were discussing the range of names in circulation.
