even reading the poetry, because you could see it through his eyes after he experienced everything. we went to visit the grave of the youngest man to be killed, when he was 15, which is younger than me, which is awful. there is a lost generation, all these people who could have had families and the future. and those who died include five of your relatives? yes. the city's military hospital treated 1,800 officers, most had shell shock, wilfred owen among them. the treatments developed here contributed to our understanding of what we now know as ptsd. the first world war, really, was the first time that people started to understand perhaps that you can develop a psychological injury in the same way you can develop as physical injury. and for the first time, we started to understand that this is not about a character flaw or a weakness, but about something that can happen to anybody, and even to the bravest of the brave. so the medics encouraged

their patients to take part in ground—breaking talking therapy, and the so—called "work cure". for owen, that meant writing. owen's doctor encourages him to write both essays and poetry. and hopefully, if you were comfortable things, busy all day doing doing worthy things, then you would have some sense of peace and rest at night, and you would be able to recover. the job of the doctors here was, wilfred owen wrote, "to make the officers dangerously well, to return them to the front". owen died seven days before the war ended, his family told as the bells marking the armistice rang out. his poems, an epitaph for the horror of war. my friend, you would not tell with such high zest to children ardent for some desperate glory. the old lie: dulce et decorum est pro patria mori. the words of wilfred owen from a

10:35 pm
for the visitors in 61 seconds was all it took for psv to make themselves look right at home. an early setback from which tomlin struggle to recover, no shortage of chances, just a real shortage of luck. in the way a keeper in inspired form, time and time again, this was becoming agonising to watch. that has become the wembley way this season. but in harry kane spurs always had hope, that had been a long time coming. if they had the chances, they finally found the good fortune to go with it. harry kane again, this time the was a winner, better late than never, spurs hope of survival will, if onlyjust. well, also in that group, mauro icardi's late equaliser meant inter and barcelona finished one apiece — the catalan side topping the group on 10 points, the italians second with seven and then tottenham third with four points. inter visit wembley next on 28th november. what a game that promises to be.
