He had been acting as cook for headquarters for some time, and was killed just as he was about to begin getting the lads' dinner ready. He went up to the trenches with a party of about fifteen, and they had just arrived at their destination when a shell dropped right in the middle of them. A piece of shell struck [him] in the head.
