09/06/2017 Pte. John McVeigh The morning of the 23rd March was again foggy and soon after dawn the enemy captured Ham and advanced on Brouchy, to the rear of the position held by the 1st Royal Irish Fusiliers. By 2.00pm it became necessary to draw back the left flank, but by 8.00pm the enemy had captured Cugny. Orders were issued that if a man was wounded and couldn稚 walk; he was to be left behind to fall into the hands of the enemy. It was considered better to lose a wounded man rather than lose three or four men who might be trying to save one.
