This is part of a Diary entry from a Nurse.
Ella Cooke, Nurse
Many had been in the trenches for weeks, and several explained to me that they had not had their boots off four moths. You can imagine the state most of them are in. Many have swollen feet and frozen up to the ankles:most I am afraid will lose both feet and many legs up to the knees.
Some I questions I have for the Nurse:
1. Why did you join the army?
2.Why did they had to wear their boots for 4 months?
