POEM FROM THE TRENCHES.

Enclosed with the letter referred to above is a poem by Private W. Tebay, Waterford, who belongs to " B ’’- Company, 2nd Batt. R.I. Regiment. It is headed "The Waterford K-nuts in the Trenches," and starts off this way-

" There is nothing to worry us out here,
Only bullets, bombs, and shells,
Bully beef and biscuits,
And nasty, horrid smells.


" Judging by the trend of the poem, the Waterford men in the Battalion are in good spirits. Amongst the Waterford soldiers mentioned in the verses are Paddy Keegan, who is well known in the city and was a fine exponent of Irish step-dancing--W. Coady, Jas. Sheehan, W. Tebay James Manahan, - Lyons. John Walsh, Private Maddox Michael Weldon, Nicholas Keeffe, and Patrick Dalton. These names will be familiar to many Waterford people, and they are but a handful of our fellow-citizens who fighting with the British Expeditionary Force.
