Remembered Today:

Strange occurence


Recommended Posts

Anyone ever heard of anything like this before. It was with the Inniskillings in 1915 and the soldier who decribes it was from Westmeath and survived the war.

A Miraculous Escape.

He related an incident, subsequent to the battle of Loos, where several comrades and himself were miraculously preserved. They were trying to make themselves comfortable in a barn somewhere in France, and were standing in the middle of the floor considering ways and means, when a dazzling sheet filled the place, extending like a white sheet from end to end. They were completely dazzled, and then the light advanced like a white wall, pressing them towards the door, through which they scrambled as speedily as possible. They had scarcely proceeded a safe distance from the barn, when, strange to say, a shell burst and demolished the entire structure. A narrow squeak.

Thanks centurion, I thought it might have been a secret weapon so I bumped it up to see if anyone ever heard of such an occurrence.

Kind regards.
