Some say that this recording cost Will Gaisberg his life.

He was severely gassed whilst making the recording, and when he returned to London he succumbed to the 1918 influenza pandemic. Less than a month later he died. If he had not been weakened by the gas attack he might have survived.


It seems to be so. Fred's Brother Will was inadvertently gassed while taping the track. The recording equipment was placed inside the kitchen of a bombed out house. Apparently several wagons were needed to move this equipment. However, in order to capture the sounds.....the "horns" had to be placed very close to the action.
The irony in all this....was Will gassed by "friendly" fire....??.

gass or flue???
well the gass make your lungs secreed alot of liquit if you got too much of it you would quite literally drown!
the thing is spanish flue afected the lungs the one of the many symtoms was watery secretions in the lungs again you would drown
my opinion is that will was gassed

Regardless, without this recording....WW1 would have never been captured for posterity.

Pretty sure that the "GAS Shell Attack" recording was staged... It sounds kind of obvious when you listen to the recording... It even sounds "Staged"... Believe that this has been covered before... and I think that they told a big "fib" as to its authenticity just to sell some records....IMHO...

I , more than anyone want it to be genuine instead of "staged"....but just listen to the recording and make your own judgements about it...
