Doing His Bit

“There is only one aim in these notes, and that is to set before you the soldier, an not the man or boy as he was before he was a soldier, not the man as he appears to-day, but the man you never saw and never knew, who lived like an animal and died like an angel; and to point out that no one can afford to judge him or condemn him, and that every-one – including his fellow soldiers – owes him a debt which cannot really be repaid”.

Between January and August 1920, Shetland Times reporter Robert M. Greig wrote a series of articles on his experiences on the Western Front in the First World War. These form a startling insight into a shell-torn, barbed wire world of terrible sacrifice and outstanding courage.
