Perfect lets see if they are capable of getting a German.
We are going to send Osborne and Raleigh for the mission
After the attack, it is known that Osborne is killed by a hand-grenade and six men are killed by gunshots.
The two attack with about ten men, shells go off all around, and after a couple of minutes a German is hurried out by the Sergeant Major. He is interrogated by the colonel in poor German.
Wie heißen Sie?
"Get out of here, for God’s sake.”
Later in the evening, they all celebrate the attack with a lot of laughter. As Stanhope gets more drunk, he becomes very angry, especially when the war is brought up. When Hibbert jokingly tells Stanhope to go to bed, Stanhope shouts.
He gets angry at Raleigh next as he didn’t turn up to the celebration. This is furthered when Raleigh becomes upset because of Osborne’s death. Stanhope sends Raleigh to his dug-out because he is also upset and has been hiding his feelings.
“For God’s sake forget that bloody raid.”
it is dark and there are no candles burning. Hibbert’s fears resurface and he is unwilling to leave the dugout but with encouragement from Stanhope and Mason, he leaves to fight.
