Well Christmas was a blast. First the Germans put up some Christmas decorations and started singing, so we started singing too. And you know Freddie? Well, he went on to No Mans Land and shook hands with the Germans. Then a bunch of other people from each side came up and shook hands.
It was just amazing how people who were trying to kill each other just went on to No mans Land and shook hands. They did it all for Christmas.
What was so funny was that they put a chair on the half way line and somebody from the Germans started giving people hair cuts. He gave me one. It was brilliant. So they all went back to the trenches nad had supper. We also had some beer.
We said “See you tomorrow” and went to bed, but in the morning the Germans were bombing like mad, because they got some new men that didn’t know anything about the hair cuts or Christmas decorations.
