    Why no digging in daylight? Too hot or too many mosquitos?
    In daylight is hot like in Notrh Africa, I'm not from DAK We have big humidity and a lot of mosquitoes and angry flies.

    Thought shall be the harder , heart the keener,
    Courage the greater as our strength faileth.
    Here lies our leader ,in the dust of his greatness.
    Who leaves him now , be damned forever.
    We who are old now shall not leave this Battle,
    But lie at his feet , in the dust with our leader
