Mark VII in Somme - November, 1916
from A Subaltern on the Somme, page 155:
Lord! What a march! The men are still straggling in. About three-quarters of the company arrived with the column this morning, and I honestly believe half my platoon would have dropped out if it hadn’t been for Jackson, who simply wouldn’t let them stop singing. That little man is a marvel. I have never seen such pluck.

Max (Mark) Plowman served with the 10th Yorkshire regiment. Invalided home in 1917, he was the only serving soldier to be court-martialled for refusing to return to fight. He later became a pacifist.
