Yon's tribute to a good soldier: Rob Bowman

#1  Rest in peace Sergeant Bowman.

I WOULD THAT all could look on death as a cheerful friend who takes us from a world of trial to our true home. All our sorrows come from a forgetfulness of this great truth. I desire to look on the departure of my friends as a promotion to another and a higher sphere, as I do believe that to be the case with all.

General Charles 'Chinese' Gordon (1833-1885), quoted in Paul Charrier, Gordon of Khartoum, 1965
