Trench Club

I chose a trench club to have with me. The reasons why I chose the trench club are because it is quiet, can be used as a weapon and can be used as a tool to dig(Hancock). This is why I chose a trench club.

Gas Mask

A gas mask is a very important resource to wear while you are in the war. Gas masks will protect you from deadly gases used by your enemies in the war. This is why I would have a gas mask.

I feel that soliders would need boots because of trench foot. Trench foot is a disease that if your foot was trenched in mud too often, you got an infection in your foot. The infection in your foot may spread and you may have to have your foot amputated. This is why I recommend a pair of boots.

A rifle is a very important weapon to carry with you while you are in the war. A rifle is used for protection of your comrades and yourself from your enemies on the battlefield. A rifle can be used to help eliminate your enemies. This is why you would need a rifle.

A helmet will help you in battle and can save your life. People are going to be shooting at you when you are on the battlefield. When a person is trying to shoot at your head, the bullet may bounce off of the helmet instead of going into your head. This is why you should have a helmet.
