"It's all right, sir," exclaimed the sergeant, who had clambered over the parados and run to the extended group of officers.
He struggled to his feet and leaned over the parados with me.
Later in the day this gallant soldier was killed whilst bombing a counter-attack from the parados of our trench.
The work was: repair of parapet and parados knocked in by recent shelling.
A 59 had burst on the parados of our trench, and caused—as 59's usually did—a bit of a mess.
Direct hits were very rare, but on one occasion I had the satisfaction of seeing a machine-gun hurled over the Turkish parados.
Private Hamilton (1st Battalion) on the 9th sat calmly on the parados, thereby getting fire to bear on the enemy.
We got to work at once shying the sandbags over from the old front of the trench to the parados.
Choosing a gap in the parados, Rifleman Carr cautiously slid on to the floor of the trench.
I gave orders for the men to dress and lie flat on the parados, ready for the word to move.
