Flyers More weekly flyers. He jumps into their trenches and is met by a gun to the face where he begs in German. He is about to be shot when an artillery shell lands and the explosion throws him onto what is effectively a cross, created by walkway timbers from the trench. He is visually crucified by the explosion. This relates to Dunne's earlier story of the legendary report of the crucified soldier.
When Dunne sees this he takes his helmet off, throws his gun down and runs to David, in a reckless attempt to keep his promise to keep him alive, getting shot in the process. He crawls to the cross on his knees, looking up at it. The Germans stop firing and allow him to retrieve David, whom he carries back to his own lines.

Like many veterans, he was reticent about sharing his experiences with his family. In a rare conversation on a fishing trip,  Dunne told the story of bayonetting a young German soldier, who had eyes like water, through the head and killing him during a battle.
