The first story published revealing the events leading up to the moment William Colclough received the Queen’s award during the height of the Second Boer War in South Africa.
“In silence, as they walked, they tried to focus on the honour of carrying a fallen soldier back to their regiment. Only one of the friends was successful, the other two could only think of the fear that was rising inside them for what lay ahead.”
William enlists in the British Military with his childhood friends and they become the Queen’s soldiers with exuberance and enthusiasm that is only felt by their youth.
But the harsh wars they fight take their toll on the young Brits, and their enthusiasm begins to break under the war in the trenches.
Through the years of the hardships of wars and the feeling of lost hope, William vows to not lose sight of honour among soldiers and the dignity in doing what’s right . . . if only he can come out of the war alive.
