12/09/2017 Pte. Robert George Lawson The weather here is getting very bad now, raining one time and snowing another. There were four inches of snow on the ground this morning and it was very cold. The ground is in an awful state now and takes one to the knees in mud. At night we lie on four feet of straw and sometimes a couple of bundles on top of us. Our division is far from what our enemies call us. They said when the _ Division went into action that their legs were shaking them but I can tell you upheld the… win us the war if we are supported by those at home. We don’t want supports of conscripts; we want volunteers if possible. You will be surprised to hear that there is a wad shop (as we term them) in the trenches where one can get cigarettes, a pint of beer and other small commodities, so let anyone who wants to aid in this struggle for liberty know that they can buy their fags as well under shot and shell as at home. I got the papers last night and the photos in the Tyrone Courier look well. I showed them to our lieutenant and he was delighted to see them.

07/09/2017 Capt Charles Newell From the Tyrone Courier dated 3rd June 1915: An Appeal to Shirkers – North Irishman’s Letter – Henry ‘Harry’ Newell (brother of Captain Charles Newell)
07/09/2017 Capt Charles Newell 01912
07/09/2017 Capt Charles Newell Mr Joseph Newell, Perry Street, Dungannon, has received the following letter from his son, Trooper Henry Newell, of the North Irish Horse, who is at present at the front with the Head Army staff, 1st Army Corps:-
07/09/2017 Capt Charles Newell The Tyrone Courier is very illuminating in the Petty Sessions and other corners as to men eligible for active service but who have quite made up their minds to live for their country and who doubtless feel to snug in their ‘fat job’ or ‘safe beat’ to venture into the Flanders to bear a hand in breaking up and destroying the great packs of ravenous German wolves which roam over France and Flanders and would raid also our Irish villages and make the days and nights hideous. There would be nothing fat left in Ireland, as now in Belgium, not even a fat national policeman. There would be Germans on that job! I wonder that eligible men are not ashamed to parade themselves in the limelight of the public press. About Dungannon, I am lead to believe that the eligible receive scant respect, and I can assure you that men who have only been here since Easter have no respect for such shirkers. And men who have endured the campaign since last August have quite made up their minds that they, or rather, what is left of them, have done their own bit, and are now doing the shirker’s bit into the bargain. The South African campaign has been called a picnic when compared with last winter’s campaign, but that winter’s contests are as nothing to this season’s struggles and Waterloos. The pace of the war has been greatly quickened these last few weeks and the pace is likely to further increase. The present ‘greater Waterloos’ are going to be succeeded by mightier and more numerous, and more frequent Waterloos. Those who are enlisting just now don’t deserve much credit for while they are being trained, war’s mightiest deed will have been wrought.

The Germans used poisonous gases on us but I only got a slight dose of it. It had terrible effects if you get a proper does of it. Adam Harbinson, of Dungannon, was wounded some time ago. The Canadians lost a terrible lot in the fight; they are a fine lot of chaps. It is terrible to see the dead lying everywhere.’ Private Abernethy mentions that he has received parcels of comforts from friends, and adds that at present, he is quite well.

The Germans used the gasses on us again for the second time; they gave us a better does this time but we have got respirations (respirators) for putting over our mouths. It is a terrible thing. We had a letter from J Lynn; he was only slightly wounded by shrapnel. They had a night attack and I am sorry to say they lost a good few. J Cunningham, P Corr, Young Patton from Pike’s Bridge and R J Frizelle were all killed. Another man we knew is missing but might turn up yet.

Since the 25th April up to the present we have had some heavy engagements but have come through safe so far. I hope to see the Ulster Volunteers out here soon. We are waiting for Kitchener’s army to come up to the fighting line till we get a week’s rest. We have done our share of fighting since we started. One thing we enjoy is the issue of rum; when we get it we are in proper fighting order. I would like the young men of Coalisland and surrounding districts to realise we are engaged in one of the greatest struggles the world has ever seen and the more men we have, we will beat them the sooner. We are not downhearted yet.’

It will be remembered that Lance Corporal McIntyre, who was wounded in heavy fighting at Festubert on that day, stating in a letter to his mother, which was published in last week’s Courier, that he saw Private Dickson being killed, and it is believed that it was at Festubert that Private Dickson fell., though no place is mentioned by the War Office. Private Dickson was a reservist, and had been at the front for some seven or eight months. He was a member of Dungannon Battalion of the U.V.F. and was very popular with all classes and creeds. The Dead March in Saul was rendered on the organ in St Anne's Parish Church, Dungannon, at the conclusion of the Sunday morning service as a mark of respect for the memory of two members of the congregation belonging to the 2nd Battalion Royal Inniskilling Fusiliers who had laid down their lives for the Empire in France on the 15th and 16th May.

06/09/2017 Pte. William Richard Dickson ‘I suppose you have heard that the Inniskillings gave the Germans a bit of the steel during the past few days. It was a grand sight to see our fellows leave what had been their winter home and drive the enemy out of theirs. Of course, it meant the loss of some brave men, but when the Germans saw the steel, it was enough for them. I was actually talking to young Dickson (Private W R Dickson, a Dungannon man) when he fell struck by a shell, which passed on and burst about 200 yards away, so you can see I had some narrow escapes. Or bishop told us the following Sunday that he had witnessed the battle, and he had never imagined that human beings could live through it, but God have mercy on me, and I did not get a scratch. We lost our machine gun officer and all our men, so that I am now a full corporal, having got the additional stripe on the battlefield.’
