Fellering

July 22, 1918 – Full diary entry:

“Got up at 5 a.m.

Left Saulxures in trucks. Arrived Fellering after dinner.

Slept in an orchard.”


Well, it was just a few days ago that Robert was craving fruit, so that worked out well for him. Fellering certainly is a beautiful place:

Chaplain Edwards reports in From Doniphan to Verdun that the entire regiment was glad to be leaving:

Again time was beginning to drag. The men welcomed the order to move into the trenches… and with exultant hearts the regiment started its march back over the mountains into the front line trenches.
