  • Attestation Papers– Attestation papers 1915
  • Document– What follows is the actual account, written in France October 11, 1918 of how Gunner Joseph Sabatino’s was killed: ”I happened to be with poor Joe, when he met his death. He was going to help a wounded comrade when he was hit in the head by a rifle bullet. He never spoke. In fact, it was so sudden that I thought that he had dropped on the ground to escape shell fire. I spoke to him and received no answer. I lifted him up and saw, at once, that he was gone. It was impossible to get the body away at the time, but the next morning, September 28, 1918 we went up again and took the remains back out of the shell fire and buried him well behind the lines. We erected a neat wooden cross with his name and number on it”.
