“This collection of letters is inscribed to
The staff of the Natal Government Railway whose careful and courageous discharge of their every-day duties amid the perils of war has made them honourably conspicuous even among their fellow colonists.”
-Winston Churchill’s dedication of the book, London to Ladysmith Via Pretoria
Even everyday duties are raised to honourable, conspicuous levels with care and courage. A person speaks through their work no matter what that work is. A person can be forged amid the “unfair “, the ” stacked against “, and the ” outmanned and outgunned “… if… they can respond with care and courage.
