The horrors of gas attacks during the Great War are something that will forever haunt my memories. The choking, burning sensation as the deadly fumes seeped into our trenches, causing panic and chaos among us soldiers. It was a weapon unlike any other, leaving behind a trail of destruction and suffering in its wake.

I remember vividly the first time I encountered mustard gas on the battlefield. The yellowish cloud slowly creeping towards us as we scrambled for our masks, hoping and praying that they would protect us from this unseen enemy. Some were not so lucky, their screams echoing in my ears as they fell victim to the toxic effects of the gas.

The aftermath of a gas attack was just as devastating as the attack itself. The sight of comrades writhing in agony, their skin blistered and eyes watering from the pain is an image that still haunts me to this day. The smell lingered in the air long after the attack had passed, a constant reminder of how fragile life truly is during wartime.

Despite all odds against us, we soldiered on through these horrific experiences. We learned to adapt and overcome these new forms of warfare, finding ways to protect ourselves and each other from further harm. But no amount of training or preparation could fully prepare us for what awaited on those battlefields.

As I sit here reflecting on those dark days gone by, I can't help but feel grateful for having survived such atrocities. Many did not make it out alive or returned home forever scarred by their experiences. Their sacrifices will never be forgotten as we continue to honor their memory with every step we take towards peace.

War changes people in ways unimaginable until faced with such circumstances firsthand. It's difficult to put into words just how much impact these events have had on me personally. But one thing remains certain - I will never forget those who fought alongside me, And I will always carry their stories with me wherever life may lead.

May we never again witness such devastation wrought upon humanity, And may peace prevail over conflict now and always.

In memory,

WW1
