1916 – November 14

Enemy keeps gathering and dispersing – they can make no plan of attack with this wire arrangement. Caught the first victim last night, I was glad to get a victim to show it worked properly, – a fine, brave fellow. His companions made no effort to rescue him as they had learnt that anyone who touches the corpse gets killed himself. The whole thing varies with different people, some can stand more electricity than others. The other day a man was caught on the wire by accident, the one who went to rescue him was killed by the current passing through the first man, who was not killed, but lost one arm. The Division came out to-day and the Chief Commissioner.
