Mary was terrified. The German machine guns seemed to be getting closer every day.
Suddenly Mary was called out to help a wounded soldier. She ran across No man’s land with her head down. Her side was roaring at her to not do it, but she was determined.
Amazingly everyone stopped firing bullets. Mary hurled the soldier on her back and scuttled to the trenches. When she got back everyone thanked her for saving their friend , however , she couldn’t believe what she had done.
When she returned home after the war she was awarded the VICTORIA CROSS [V C ] for saving the life of another person.
