"Do you think there's a life after death Harry?"
" For Christ sake Mikky go to sleep."
" Yeah sorry mate... I just reckon it's all a bit pointless really."
" Just bloody stop thinking about it, it does ya no good."
" Here one minute, eatin', breathin' talkin' , then BANG! Just like that you're bloody gone."
"I'll bloody clobber ya over the head in a minute, before the Turks ever get a chance to shoot ya"
"
But don't you think it's all a bit pointless, Harry? We kill them, they kill us."
"They're the enemy Mikky!"
"
Yeah I know that mate. I just reckon if there is a God then he ain't one I wanna meet. How can there be
a God who allows all this?"

"God didn't do this cobber, the greed of men did. Men started this bloody war and now it's blokes like us, who are
gonna finish it."
"If we don't bloody die first."
" You watch my back and I'll watch yours. That's all you need to worry about. Now shut up and go to sleep."
"Harry?"
"
What!"
I don't wanna die here. I don't want to die."
"
 Me either mate, me either."


"OH CHRIST, STAY WITH ME MIKKY! COME ON KEEP YOUR EYES OPEN!
MEDIC! I NEED A MEDIC!"
"H...a..rry"
"Right here mate, just keep your eyes open come on.
I NEED A BLODDY MEDIC!"
" Am... I gon...na die?"
​" You're fine everything's gonna be fine. HEY! Keep your eyes open, come on mate."
" Har...ry?"
"Shhh, right here mate."
" I thin...k the...re is."
"Is what?"
"Li...fe aft...er death."
" Me too mate, me too."
