I'll just write out the points I have in my anthology:
- "Suddenly": In medias res, potential to link to any theory you have
- "Bayonet Charge" It's a simple title, little idealisation, a reflection he sees little good in the misery of battle and has lost the initial patriotism he had going in.
- "Green hedge" Contrast between the death and destruction of war and the blossoming and growth of greenery
- "bewilderment...almost": Reactions of surprise, but they have little effect in stopping him, reflecting how he has become desensitised
- "shot-slashed" Sibilance of weaponry
- "cold clockwork": Trividises war, reflects a cold and unemotional reality which encourages apathy in the reader
- "smacking": onomatopoeic, personifying the bullets which juxtaposes the dehumanisation of the soldiers.
- "Threw up a yellow hare" Ambiguous metaphor of a landmine, reflecting a bitter reality where the lives of the soldiers are only a spectacle
- ",...,...,..., etcetra" commas emphasise while the etcetra diminishes, as if their journey into war seems like a heroic plot until a simple landmine turns it to a full stop.

Hope that helps!
