News Reporter Interviews New Zealand Soldier

On the 24th of June 1919 news reporter John Harvey Interviewed a young New Zealand soldier Albert Asher that had just returned from the war in Gallipoli. Albert says that it was one of the most frightening time of his life." I was scared even getting on to the boat," He tells us. " I thought it would be awesome otherwise I would have thought a bit more about it" He says. Asher says "Living in the trenches is worse than you can possibly imagine. When you listen all you hear are gunshots, screams and footsteps. When you smell you sent the dead bodies blood and mud. When you peek up from your trench you can only see men, guns, explosions, mud, barb wires, blood, dead bodies and all kinds of things.”

This is what a news article should look like.
