That was alright and the next day I was in about the same position again but walking back a bit further and this bloody shell came over and burst and I dived into a slip trench or a hole or something.

It was a pit where the wireless was, you know, there was the receiver and I don't know whether I knocked myself out or what but I didn't wake up for about three days and I never tell anybody about it much.

I don't know who fed me or what. This was a bit of a shock to me after three days but I've never ever felt anything since. I never ever thought to ask anybody about it or even see a psychiatrist or what. It just, everything was gone, black. I don't remember anything.
