    “I was in the action near Polygon Wood (Ypres) around 25-27th September. We attacked about 9 a.m. We gained our objective and stayed there until relieved. I was gassed. Sgt. G Smart was in a shell hole very badly wounded as we were going forward. I stayed a little time with him and did what I could and then I told Coy. Sgt.Major Williams and he went to him and he afterwards told me Smart had died. I know nothing more.
