Ross is a member of 2 Para. He was home recently on R & R leave. His mother wrote about her feelings and concerns.
Her story includes this passage. I can think of many hours I spent confiding in a dog.
Ross never told us that he didn’t want to go back, but I overheard him, in the early hours, telling the dog. And to have him home and safe, and then to send him back to this utter madness, is the cruellest and most insane act that I will ever experience.
