He had just arrived in his new home (or hole) when "heinie" duplicated the order, which hit on the edge of the first hole.
The boys started to fall and all that was heard was, "I'm hit," or "heinie got me."
Again, and up until the time I was hit, it was little or no sleep, for "heinie" insisted upon coming back into the town.
But that grinning, simple-looking heinie may not be as foolish as he appears.
Some of us were detailed to put "heinie" out and it was no easy job, for every "heinie" had a machine gun.
Thought yours could hop further than my little heinie, didn't you?
"heinie" started to send over everything he had, in the way of shells, high explosives, shrapnel and machine gun bullets.
Evidently some bold heinie had chucked them over to make sure of the job in case the machines hadn't.
I began to realize then what we were up against, for "heinie" must have had a million machine guns and they were all working.
Once I was out on patrol alone, having sent my man back with a message, when I encountered a heinie.
