MARTIN: 'Martin's mother lives at Chatswood, Sydney. He was rather short and slight, and slightly bald. Clements's name was Percy. He and I enlisted the same day in Sydney. His number was near mine. He was in the 104th Howitzer Batty., 4th Bgde. not 7th. The Battery was formed in Egypt, and he has been in it ever since. Clements and Martin were both at the Battery Position to the left of the Menin Road, near Burr [sic: Birr] Cross Roads. A 5.9 got a direct hit on the gun, and the whole crew were wiped out. This was about the middle of September. Martin was blown to pieces, and nothing was left to bury. Clements was the only man not killed outright. He died of wounds the next day. I saw his grave at Poperinghe in a Military Cemetery alongside No. 2 Canadian Casualty Clearing Station. There was a cross with his No. &c. on it.'
