He explains his sadness at learning that those he lost were family men. In this clip, he describes how he’d leave a cross on the grave of friend and Colonel, Owen Dent, each time he visited the grave.
He also lost a Sergeant, Joseph, who he later found out also had four children. He said that the men rarely knew about each other’s personal lives.
