A few weeks ago was the memorial of the Somme. It was a very moving service and one quote really stood out to me. It was from a reading of the diary of a commander who was responsible for a battalion of men. He was recalling his experience of utter terror sitting in the trenches waiting for their call to head over and into no-mans land. He said that when it came his time he found himself racing towards his destiny and reflected that “You sort of lose your sense of fear, thinking about other people”. How incredible, that in the face of all that fear, he overcame this with the welfare of his comrades and country at heart.
