Statements that prove the soldiers' lives are in the hands of fate are as follows;

If it were simply a mistake in aim no one would say anything, but the truth is that the barrels are worn out. The shots are often so uncertain that they land within our own lines. To-night two of our men were wounded by them.

Men are killed by their own artillery.

We lie under the network of arching shells and live in a suspense of uncertainty. Over us Chance hovers. If a shot comes, we can duck, that is all; we neither know nor can determine where it will fall.

Shells fall where they may... life hangs in the balance.
