Matthew Keane describes a night raid across the River Struma, which formed the Macedonian front line between Greece and Bulgaria.

Matthew (Matty) Keane describes crossing the Struma river on a winter night to raid a village. In the dark they stumbled upon the enemy who were only a matter of feet away. While charging in the dark this veteran recalls falling over the enemy a number of times.

The action described here probably took place in October 1916.
