Place of incident: Manhay

His story: As the I Company moved forward in the snowy field towards Manhay another salvo came after the artillery barrage which prepared the movement. This ‘friendly fire’ was not only late but it was also too short. This killed Lieutenant Stott and 11 men of his platoon which led the attack. Nearly 20 other soldiers of the platoon were seriously injured by the salvo. Without discouragement, we continued the attack with speed, passing through the carnage and leaving the medics who took care of the wounded.
