Letters home: The Somme

“I never saw anything so tragic,” he wrote as he marched back over the battlefield to Englebelmer. “It was a shambles, any amount of our brave fellows being all round in shell holes and with terrible wounds – some of them with half a head blown off, others without legs and arms, and others with numerous bullet wounds.”

Trevor's Company entered the battle of the Somme with 150 men, and returned with only 80 left.

"When we got back to Englebelmer, we were cinematographed. I am marching alone as the second in command of my Coy but I suppose my steel helmet and unshaven appearance will make me hard to recognise."
