Moriaty Posted 24 October , 2013 Share Posted 24 October , 2013 A Welsh newspaper of October 1915 quoted a letter written home by a soldier in France in which he described his battalion's part in the Battle of Loos. He wrote "When we came out to rest we presented a queer sight - some without caps, tunics ripped and all of us plastered with mud. We looked like a lot of 'Tired Tims' and 'Weary Willies', but are quite all right, once more". Were these common descriptions in 1915?
