recruits were a splendid lot of men.
To my mind they were the pick of the Battalion and up to June 1916 all the honours which fell to the lot of the 6th. viz:- 3 D.C.M’s and one Military Cross were awarded to three men and one officer of this draft.
My number was 2235 and I assigned to F Company and as Ben and Bob were in the same lot we were very glad things had fallen as they had done.
