The Britons have a sense of self pride and patriotism which can be seen in the beginning of the strip where there is a poster of, “Briton wants you” and also when writing to his father shows his sense of pride by boldly writing, “I felt proper proud the day we landed in France. You should have seen the soldiers Dad. Jerry won’t stand a hope against us Tommies in France.” Not only this but the soldiers are shown walking in a march chanting a song, boosting their morale. These soldiers all had to sacrifice their lives from before the war and put their lives on the line for their country. Another time sacrifice is displayed in the strip is when Charley goes over for the first time to save the messenger soldier and his butt is hit with debris. The debris is taken out and he is fine afterwards. Sacrifice is already seen since the beginning of the book, ever since we see Charley writing to his family, Charley has no job and sacrifices his life from before for the country. Charley is seen risking his life many times, though a very weak tolerance for death, he is seen leading his comrades into a tunnel which he had found. Charley also learns about sacrifice when he has to administer an execution for cowardice. Here he realizes what must be done in order to keep justice.
