A Cambrai Veteran

Pte. Herb. W. Woods, another 160th boy, got home Saturday night and was met by a large crowd at the station. Herb looks the same as ever but has not quite recovered from a severe wound he got at Cambrai. When the 160ths was broken up in England, Pte. Woods along with outers went to the 18th Battn. On October 11th in front of Cambrai he got a bullet through his side which pierced the right lung. It was the same day that Earl Pinkney, also of the 18th, was wounded. Herb arrived at Halifax on the Cassandra after eleven days on the water.
