Iain wouldn’t move over Tailor’s Stitch until it was completely dark. He was right, of course: even in the dimmest light we risked our silhouettes being seen by anyone who happened to be looking in the right direction. But it was frustrating, sitting there waiting, every minute thinking, ‘OK, it’s dark enough now, let’s go’, then thinking, ‘Oh no, there’s still a streak of grey in the sky, right across the ranges, better wait a few more minutes’.

Trying to remember that every bush, every tree, could contain death. ’ Ploughing on hour after hour, day after day sometimes, just so at the end of it you could kill someone or be killed. Well, we ploughed on, until by 9 am we were standing on the top of Tailor’s Stitch.

After last night I felt too guilty to want to discuss the war. Plus sometimes it was just all too scary. There was so much to be afraid of that I didn’t know where to start.
