In a letter Wilbert, now in his 70s, wrote: "Jerry Ahern, the only British soldier with us, died in my arms. He had been machine gunned. Both his legs and feet were riddled with bullet holes. Without medical attention Jerry was a doomed man. He died like a man, far away from his beloved England. He was among friend and we loved him like a brother."
