“I'm not bitter, I just fainted, that's how it was and I think I was very lucky.  'Cos in those days we weren't afraid to use the word sweetheart, well I had one, I knew her since she was 16 and I was 20, that's her up there and I eventually married her and that little photograph on there is what she sent me and I received that on the day the Somme battle started.  On my birthday, no, before my birthday, that's right.  No I'm not bitter I think matter of fact I'm pretty lucky aren't I?, if you work it out.  You see because those that survived the Somme in my regiment then pushed down to Passchendaele where it was almost as bad wasn't it?”
