[letters of men in the Royal Irish Rifles]

Reading experience
Identifer:

Evidence

"Talking of the necessity for the censoring of letters ... I find quite a number of the men writing absolute lies about the danger they go through; and their extraordinary courage and all that sort of thing; the more illiterate the writer, the greater the lie is the rule, and not one letter in ten, printed in the papers, received from men in the ranks, gives anything like and accurate description of any action which they attempt to describe."
