The Great War, I was there - Part 5

HOMELESS, FOR THE GERMANS ARE AT THEIR HEELS It is of such pathetic scenes as this that Miss May Sinclair gives graphic word pictures in her vivid chapter on the llight of the people of Ghent to Antwerp. At the crossroad at Oudenarde a scene typifying the tragedy of a nation in retreat is shown. On the left is a village priest following his flock into exile. Red Cross men and a little party of soldiers march side by side with farm carts and wagons, filled with weeping women and terrified children, a few of their household goods around them, fleeing from the cruel tide of war which was yet to engulf them.
