Sergeant Quinn volunteered for this patrol, which crawled out through No Man's Land until it came upon an enemy outpost about twenty yards in front of the enemy front line. The patrol quickly over-powered the two Germans occupying the outpost and started back toward our own lines. But the noise of the struggling prisoners aroused the enemy and a heavy barrage of rifle grenades and rifle fire was directed at the patrol. It was largely due to the coolness of Sergeant Quinn that the patrol was able to makes its way through this fire and turn the prisoners over to the Battalion Commander.
