. FOUNDED BY A FRENCH COLONEL AND PUBLISHED REGULARLY EVERY WEEK AT THE FRONT: THE FRONT PAGE OF “LE PETIT ECHO.” 3. FRENCH VIVACITY UNDER VERY DEPRESSING CIRCUMSTANCES: AN “ADVERTISEMENT” PAGE IN “LE HERAUT,” BROUGHT OUT BY FRENCH PRISONERS AT ZOSSEN


a. FRENCH POETIC AND ARTISTIC ABILITY IN THE TRENCHES: A PAGE OF LE PETIT ECHO” CONTAINING A POEM CALLED ” THE OGRE AND THE DWARFS. 4 SAID TO BE THE ONLY EXTANT COPY OF THE FIRST AND LAST NUMBER: THE FRONT PAGE OF “LE HERAUT,” THE WHOLE ISSUE OF WHICH WAS CONFISCATED.


These reproductions illustrate well the wit and buoyancy of the French character under the ,rim conditions of war. With regard to the first two, Lieut.-Colonel Rat, of the 18th French Territorial Regiment of Infantry, writes, in excellent English, an interesting and inspiring letter. “I have pleasure in enclosing,” he says, “two copies of ‘Le Petit Echo’ Our paper is brought out regularly every week, though sometimes under diffi- Culties, our Regiment having been on the march and at the front since August 17. 1


thought these Numbers might interest you, as a proof of the spirit existing in the French Army, including ‘ Territorial ‘ Regiments, composed of men with strong family ties. WV are all here great admirers of England, and are glad to be striving for the same ideal as the men of Britain, whose fighting qualities, cool courage, and ‘grip ‘ are being shown once more to the world.” The other paper, ” Le HIraut,” was brought out by some French prisoners in the hands of the Germans at Zossen. near Dresden.
