Newfoundland At Armageddon

“It's strange to be back here. Everything is so calm, so green. Nature has taken back the land. On such a beautiful day as this, it's hard to believe what it was like when I was last here – the trenches, the mud, the bullets…. Hard for my pretty Scottish lass to imagine the horror. But I just have to close my eyes and it all comes back. It's in my head and it never goes away.”

“The caribou is a good symbol: like us – they're proud, they're swift, they're survivors. Do you remember Charles? The bombing… the sound of the Emma Gee? The horrible smell of rotting flesh?… I will never forget.”

“They're playing the ode… It's very moving. Will, dear Will, it's for you and all the others that we gather today. Dear God, let them rest in peace. Keep my own boys from such horror. Let this really be the war to end all wars.”
