    Iedereen die me kent weet dat ik een zwak heb voor de Ieren. Vandaag is het 17 maart, een dag die in Ierland én de rest van de wereld bekend staat als St. Patricksday. Een goed moment om even stil te staan bij het grote offer dat de Ieren tijdens de Grote Oorlog gebracht hebben in Vlaanderens Velden…

     

    Op de link hieronder vindt u origineel Pathé filmmateriaal van St. Patricksday in 1917 met Ierse militairen die wellicht op herstelverlof waren in Dublin.

    Klik op de afbeelding om de link te volgen

    Vandaag in Zondag Frontpoëziedag het gedragen gedicht Counter-Attack van goeie ouwe  Siegfried Sassoon. Gewoon om het niet af te leren….

     

    We’d gained our first objective hours before

    While dawn broke like a face with blinking eyes,

    Pallid, unshaven and thirsty, blind with smoke.

    Things seemed all right at first. We held their line,

    With bombers posted, Lewis guns well placed,

    And clink of shovels deepening the shallow trench.

    The place was rotten with dead; green clumsy legs

    High-booted, sprawled and grovelled along the saps

    And trunks, face downward, in the sucking mud,

    Wallowed like trodden sand-bags loosely filled;

    And naked sodden buttocks, mats of hair,

    Bulged, clotted heads slept in the plastering slime.

    And then the rain began,—the jolly old rain!

     

    A yawning soldier knelt against the bank,

    Staring across the morning blear with fog;

    He wondered when the Allemands would get busy;

    And then, of course, they started with five-nines

    Traversing, sure as fate, and never a dud.

    Mute in the clamour of shells he watched them burst

    Spouting dark earth and wire with gusts from hell,

    While posturing giants dissolved in drifts of smoke.

    He crouched and flinched, dizzy with galloping fear,

    Sick for escape,—loathing the strangled horror

    And butchered, frantic gestures of the dead.

     

    An officer came blundering down the trench:

    “Stand-to and man the fire step!” On he went ...

    Gasping and bawling, “Fire-step ... counter-attack!”

    Then the haze lifted. Bombing on the right

    Down the old sap: machine-guns on the left;

    And stumbling figures looming out in front.

    “O Christ, they’re coming at us!” Bullets spat,

    And he remembered his rifle ... rapid fire ...

    And started blazing wildly ... then a bang

    Crumpled and spun him sideways, knocked him out

    To grunt and wriggle: none heeded him; he choked

    And fought the flapping veils of smothering gloom,

    Lost in a blurred confusion of yells and groans ...

    Down, and down, and down, he sank and drowned,

    Bleeding to death. The counter-attack had failed.
