Who's Who

BYRON MANSON


Source: Crawfordsville Daily Journal 27 Nov 1918


Mr. and Mrs. Fred Manson Tuesday received word from their son, Lt. Byron Manson who has been on duty overseas since last January stating that he is now in Base Hospital No. 30, Royat, France and is recovering rapidly. The parents of Lt. Manson received a cablegram some time ago stating that he had been gassed on Oct 21 and that a letter would follow soon. Tuesday, however was the first that they had heard concerning his injuries. In telling about how it all happened he said that his battery had been sent up to the front with the infantry in liason duty, and while there he was struck with phosgene gas. This is a slow paralytic gas and he was rushed immediately to the field emergency hospital. From there he was sent to a permanent field hospital a long way behind the lines, but after only a few hours there he was taken to the base hospital at Royat. In describing his journey he said that the men were laid on spring cots and lay in the coaches three deep. ALl the hospitals near the front had to be evacuated for emergency purposes and the journey to Royat was two days and three nights long. Lt. Manson assured his parents that he was getting along very nicely and was able to walk around a little at the time he wrote. He has been active in every battle from the Contigny to the Argonne and said his only regret was that he couldn't be at the front for the wind-up. kbz
