  5. 5. He impressed me very favourably as a modest likeable fellow with no airs
  6. 6. He seems to me to be a simple-minded young Irishman frank and without much experience of the world So far as I saw there was nothing boastful
  7. 7. I got hold of a pamphlet about Saskatoon which makes it out to be an Earthly Paradise on a small scale, so I am quite looking forward to sharing in its delights. My people use to sympathise with me for having to go to the “Wild West” but this unfortunate pamphlet has put a stop to all that.

  17. 17. 12 July, 1915 There are many things about this life that I like and many things that are irksome. On the whole, I am looking forward to the conclusion of the whole matter and just making the best of things until then

  26. 26. Private Fraser’s Diary, 4 April 1916 When day broke, the sights that met our gaze were so horrible and ghastly that they beggar description. Heads, arms and legs were protruding from the mud at every yard and dear knows how many bodies the earth swallowed. Thirty corpses were at least showing [in] the crater and beneath its clayey waters other victims must be lying killed and drowned
  27. 27. June 22, 1916 PS By the way, I would suggest that Communications concerning the Company should in future be addressed to me
  28. 28. 15 October 1916 I can’t say that the prospect of returning to the front gives me any pleasure. All sense of romance has gone out of the business for me, and it is now a matter of grim necessity
  29. 29. October 1916
  30. 30. April 29, 1917
  31. 31. June 13, 1917 I confess I can’t see the point of keeping up the pretence that that battalion is still in existence, unless you are doing it for political reasons, and I certainly don’t think that men should be told that they are being sent to a batallion which exists only in your own imaginations
  32. 32. June, 1917
  33. 33. June, 1917 – November 1917
  34. 34. Passchendaele, November 1917 – Lieven Summer1918
  35. 35. July 9, 1918 nearly four years of army life have not improved my knowledge of literature
  36. 36. Amiens, August 1918
  37. 37. Dury, Hindenburg Line, 2-3 September 1918
  38. 38. October 22, 1918 Reg and other officers were killed by a big bursting shell which came down almost vertically on my dear son killing him on the spot
  39. 39. October 22, 1918 The remains of my son, owing to the heavy shellfire and the necessity of all available men as stretcher bearers could not be brought back to the cemetery, but on the evening of the 4th September the chaplain, Captain Buck, gathered a party who amid the roar of guns and the scream of shells paid their last respects to a ‘very gallant comrade and one of the best loved men in the battalion’
  40. 40. Reginald John Godfrey Bateman, 12 October 1883 – 3 September 1918
  41. 41. February 23, 1919 I would consider it a favour if you let me know what are the chances of his getting such in Canada or the United States.

  43. 43. Arthur Cyril Bateman 30 October 1890 – 28 March 1918
  44. 44. October 22, 1918 Godfrey Bateman to Walter Murray My eyes fill as they write, my beloved one in a foreign land, red with his blood which he shed for it, for me, for honour, for truth, for all that makes life worth living. Was his life wasted? No, a thousand times, No.
  45. 45. Leon Woolf In Flanders Fields It remains to be said, as usual, that the war ended on the eleventh hour of the eleventh day of the eleventh month of 1918. It had meant nothing, solved nothing, and proved nothing; and in so doing had killed 8,538,315 men and variously wounded 21,219,452.” Ezra Pound Hugh Selwyn Mauberley There died a myriad And of the best, among them, For an old bitch gone in the teeth, For a botched civilization.
  46. 46. August 4, 1915 Godfrey Bateman to Walter Murray He enjoyed himself thoroughly but had to leave too soon. His mother, sister and youngest brother who is devoted to him saw him off. As the mail boat went from her berth, getting up steam and very soon into her full stride, we ie John Victor and I ran along the pier to get a view as long as we could of him
