after the commencement of hostili

over in France, but it was not until
the early part of 1915 that he went
Into the trenches.
Ypres was his first engagement,
and it was there that the Germans
introduced gas warfare, and it's a
horrible picture that the young Ca
nadian paints of the suffering of
himself and his brave comrades as
they met the German onslaught with
out gas masks. Men lay on all sides
writhing with pain from the effects
of the cruel chemical, nauseated, and
many deathly sick. But dipping their
handkerchiefs in uiud, they applied
them to their noses, and were able
to frustrate, after much loss, the

Dr. Bremner was gassed at the
battle of Somme. He regained con
sciousness in a hospital, where be
laid for weeks, at times lingering on
the brink of death. Before he re
covered, however, the call for men
became so urgent that he was sent
back into the Hues with a tempera

Instantly. The three were at a lis
tening post, keeping brigade head
quarters in touch with the front lines
through the medium of a telephone.
Dr. Bremner was at the Instrument
when a call came to the effect that
the Germans had ceased firing. Turn
ing over the telephone to his chum,
he went down into the dug-out to cut
some wood with which to keep a fire
burning during the night, and he
was engaged in this task when the
shell fell through the opening, ex
ploding its shrapnel over his two
It was a few days later, as he
was going "over the top," that all
other shell fell at his feet, so close
that his life was spared, but his
nerves were so badly shocked that he
sank Into unconsciousness. He was
a full-fledged shell shocked soldier
now. Incapacitated for further duty.
He was sent back, a hopeless case.
"After all other methods had fail

practic, and so noticeable was my im
provement that I decided to go to
Davenport, Iowa, and not only take
the treatments but study the profes

now I believe I am fully recovered."
