Statement, 2878 Corporal R.E. POULTER, B Company, 60th Bn, 5 February 1917: 'With the exception of Rooney who was in C. Co., I knew them all [WEBB and 10 others]. They all went over the top on 19th July at Fromelles. We had 440 yards to cross under heavy fire and a creek to get over into the bargain. None of these men answered roll call. In my own mind they were all killed. We could not get any bodies in, most of which lay 100 yards out in No Man's Land.'
