    Just heard that on the way home.

    Bob Wilson gave a brief interview because Trautmann was his idol. Wilson lost two brothers in the RAF in WW2 and his father who also fought in WW1 couldn't understand Wilson's 'hero worship' for a prisoner of war.

    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
