Roy C Newman served in the Supply Company of the 26th Division in France during World War I. He was assigned as driver for Co D kitchen. It was his job to haul food supplies to the company - which was mostly done at night to prevent detection by the Germans. His company served in the Toul sector of France and specifically at the town of Coneaville where the 26th Division suffered very heavy losses. Later they participated in engagements at St Michiel, Verdun and St Maurice. The Verdun battle was one of the hardest of the entire war and the weather at the time of the battle was fierce. In a letter that he wrote to his parents in February 1919 he says in part - "The worst night that I ever had was in the Chateau Therry front, we carried up rations and unloaded and started for a town that our boys had captured that day and the Germans still held half the town, we drove into town with ammunition and they opened up with artillery, dropped six big shells near us but none of us were hit. I got out of my wagon, held on to the reins and laid down in a shell hole and also drove my team into a dugout and saved them. After the bombardment let up we drove on up and while we were unloading, the Huns threw flare lights on us and opened up with machine gun fire, but we got back OK. I must say that was the worst night that I spent on the front."
