With the coming of May 1915 and Grandpa Dolan’s fourth month in France and Belgium the 10th Battalion was totally refitted and reorganized. She was brought up to full strength when replacements joined the few survivors from the original contingent. After rest and further training they were sent back to the front at Festubert, which became the next major battle they participated in from May 19th to the 25th. The official history of the battalion described this battle as “the most unsatisfactory engagement” involving Canadian troops in the war. One participant called it “simply the gates of hell opened and everything let loose at once.” The casualties were again heavy, but again Grandpa survived it all. A week’s rest followed, and then the 10th marched to their next assignment, a place called Givenchy. This was June 1and was the beginning of Grandpa’s last week at the front.
