James Dickinson, a convalescent Canadian soldier, in a letter to a friend, tells this story of the great war: During a lull In the battle of the Marne one of the Canadian troopers took off his steel helmet, and, placing It on the end of his rifle, held It so that about half of it protruded above the top of the trench. A German sniper, observing it, at once shot at it, and the ball, striking it squarely, pierced the steel, going out the other side. The \Tommy\ laughingly showed it to his comrades and placed it back on his head. Fifteen minutes later the order came to \go over the top,\ and this same \Tommy\ was among the first. He was also among the first to fall, mortally wounded. It was discovered at the dressing station that he had been struck by a nearly spent hujlet that had gone through one of the holes that he had so recently shown his fellow soldiers in laughter.
