The Great War, I was there - Part 23

L.N.A. CHRIST MAS LEAVE WAS THE BEST LEAVE O F A L LIt was not until Christmas 1916, when a deadlock had been reached on the Western Front, that it was possible to give Christmas leave to many men. To those who got it, it was the best leave of all Aspell in the front line, where spending was impossible, often gave the soldier a nice balance of pay due when on leave, even on the private’s Is. aid. day. As Colonel FeiUing recalls in Chapter 165, they spent with lavish generosity. These lads on leave have escaped the harpies he mentions, and their first thought has been toy animals for their little friends. 897 z
