The tremendous stores of German ammunition troops found by the in the forests of Fere and Rlz lead officers to believe that the allied offensive nipped in the bud German plans for a momentous drive upon Eperuay. The forests and the surroundln. country north of the Marne were vir tually one great arsenal for German ammunition of all kinds, shells being particularly numerous. A' places on the edges of the woods then were large shells stacked like cord wood over large areas. Thousauds of these shells were in tended for the German guns, only a few of which have been captured. The Americans assume that the Germans withdrew many of thesi ;iins and that others intended for tin ,'reat drive had not yet arrived when he allied offensive began. All through the forests the Amerl tins came upon ammunition depots, it some p'aces more than an acre of ,'round being covered with shells of ill calibers.

Gordon Sanford joined the cavalry in the British Army, in London, on August $, 1914, the day Great Britain entered the war.

Anore, Viny Ridge, Arras, and the third battle of Ypres. On two occasions he was wounded; the first time in the battle of the Somme and the second time at Ypes in November, 1917. He was still in the hospital in April of this year when he was chosen as one of the officers to be sent to this country to take part in the Liberty Loans, Red Cross, and W. S. IS. drives. He was twice mentioned by Sir Douglas Haig in dispatches, and was decorated with the Military Cross by King George. During the last six months in France and Belgium he commanded the 48th Battery, Royal Field Artillery. Before the war he spent six years in British East Atrica and Uganda, where he did a good deal of elephant and other big game hunting, then ostrich farming, and finally coffee .planting.
