9780646416960: New Guinea Narrative, the Round Trip 1942-1943: Incorporating the Wartime Diary of a Cipher Operator

Along the trail, there was little conversation between us. You neither had the time nor the inclination. Talking required energy and energy was a scarce resource.

When passing a mate you sometimes glanced at his face. A face dull from fatigue and dripping with perspiration. You saw his sticking clothes, his muddy boots and trousers.

You noticed the heavy pack and could hear his heaving breath as he struggled past. Then, as you pitied him and felt sorry for his plight, you realised that you looked the same as the others.

Even though no words were spoken the silent glance conveyed sympathy and understanding.
