‘Conduct After Capture’ – IWML, SE1

A former soldier (Bosnia, Iraq et al…) addresses a young military group leaving the building. ‘Name, rank,  serial number’ he asks one of the party (no reply). Falling into conversation after their tactical withdrawal. The ex-serviceman talks candidly about his experiences and the legacy he lives (copes) with. Alcohol dependence, rehabilitation, identity, public perception. Saying more about the reality of post-war trauma in 5 minutes than any programme/publication could achieve in the course of an evening.
