widavies Posted 24 December , 2011 Share Posted 24 December , 2011 Hi All, What happened on any Christamas Eve during the 1914-1918 war for the regiment that you are interested in. On Christmas Eve 1914 the Germans in the trenches opposite "A" Company, 2nd Battalion Royal Welch Fusiliers, had been shouting across, but on the morning of Christmas Day everything was quiet. One of the Fusiliers, Pioneer Sergeant J.J. "Nobby" Hall, stuck up a board with "A Merry Christmas" on it and the enemy stuck up a similar one. Then, around noon, a German was seen coming out of the fog along the tow-path, his hands in the air. Private Ike Sawyer went out to meet him. The two shook hands, and Sawyer was offered a box of cigars. Regards Will Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
