    • QUOTES (4)

      • CSM Henwood: You've got him, all it takes is one last effort. The last two minutes of your boxing career, make them the best two minutes. You hurt him, he's gone. His legs are gone, now go on out there and hurt him some more. For yourself, for the family, for the regiment. Go for it!

      • Juliet Grant: How do the officers react if their team loses?
        Laura Cadman: Impeccably, of course. Sportsmanship, fair play. It's not whether you win that counts, but how you play the game.

      • Maj Cadman: Boxing is a great leveller. Gets you in with the men.
        Laura Cadman: Oh yes, all ranks yelling together, 'Go on kill him, knock his teeth down his throat'.

      • Fusilier Black: All alone and no one to love?
        Cpl Nancy Thorpe: Are you? My heart bleeds.
