Hi All,

Thanks to all who offered historical commentary and personal stories regarding the horrors of chemical warfare. I wasn't surprised by the prevailing aversion to this cowardly weapon, but I was by the impact it still has on the families of those who endured these attacks a century ago.

Lest we forget...

Score and fold,

Thumb Dog

Double what TD just said. I never knew my Uncle Frank but everyone said he was a very kind and gentle man. My Aunt Ida never even bothered trying to replace him.

The best account of a gas attack is the poem by Wilfred Owen called "Dulce et Decorum Est".It says everything.

Hi All,

Thank you, Dartlynx, I had not seen that poem before. For those interested, here is a link to the work by Wilfred Owen.

Hang on, this is not an easy read.



Score and fold,

A bitter poem, all the more so for its truth.

Well, all of these is really a prequel to your wonderful: Bandages and Baguettes, The Care and Feeding of the Great War Soldier.
Part of the history and experience of the War to end all Wars!!
