It's the detail that counts in history, the young guts in the battle, the grit, the stand, the tears, the desperation, the girl to get back to, the trudge to the end of the world, the ground water, the stench, the tea, the bully beef and the dream of blights. My granddad was a hard man. We all loved him. This is part of where he came from. We don't know we are born.
