“I am the enemy you killed, my friend.

I knew you in this dark: for so you frowned

Yesterday through me as you jabbed and killed.

I parried; but my hands were loath and cold.

Let us sleep now. . . ."

My other half's Gt Uncle was awarded the MC for his efforts at Ors that day. 

 

He was killed clearing munitions on Dec 3rd 1918...

More to the point:
 
Now men will go content with what we spoiled.
Or discontent boil bloody, and be spilled.
They will be swift with swiftness of the tigress. 
None will break ranks, though nations trek from progress.
Courage was mine, and I had mystery;
Wisdom was mine, and I had mastery: 
To miss the march of this retreating world
Into vain citadels that are not walled.
