Agra, which operated with the Canadian Corps on the Adriatic front, began moving- into position on the south of Cassino sector about mid-April. It was an irW tensely secret move, which was not completed until a few days before the start of the offensive. Canadian mediums averaged 40 rounds a gun In the first 40 minutes of counter-battery fire and during the first two days of battle, averaged 300. For some crews this was more shells than they fired during their many weeks on the Adriatic coast. The men worked hard and got little sleep. But because of the accuracy of their shots they received comparatively light returns from the enemy.' The Germans knocked over one field gun without inflicting casualties but it was In action again within an hour. . i f - Bdr. Don Ruszell, of Port Arthur, Ont., a member of the crew in a battery recruited in his home city, said it was the busiest period he has had as a gunner. Other members of the crew, sitting , around stripped to the waist, seemed as happy as Russell. They hadn't liked the mud of Moro Valley In which they had been camped for weeks. Gun Crew. - Commanding this crew was Sgt Emerson Noyes, of Rldgeway, Ont, and other members were: L. Bdr. Herb Smith, of Fort Frances; Ont, and Gunners Ken Irving, of Allanwater, Ont; Doug Ferguson, Nelson, B.C.; Joe Kirschner, Kelowna, B.C.; Lloyd Jamieson, Star City, Sask.; Laveme Hlggs, Huntsville, Ont; Maurice Plante, Waterloo, Ont, and Bob Hunter, Stanbridge East, Que. 1 Another battery in the regiment was recruited In Quebec's Eastern Townships, and many of Its men were from that part of the country.- Some of them were Bdr. C. L. Willey, and his son, Sgt-MaJ. J. Howard Willey, of Granby; Sgt Charles Stowe, of Waterloo, and Gnrs. Roland Patenaud, Ron Dickenson, of Granby; Alexander Johnson, of Farnham,. as well as the survey officer, Lieut Lloyd Flaet, of Quebec City. HOUSING NEGOTIATIONS. TORONTO, May i 20. K. W.
