A Privilege to serve the Serbs






"But—if you know any of them—ask them about the Serbs they worked for, in mud and snow, rain and sun. A bunch of grapes on a dusty day, a glass of milkless tea on a cold winter’s dawn, a smile in the wet—these are only little things. But they are little things that count; the little things that reveal a people’s soul. It is what the pauper gives away that touches every heart. "

"It has been a privilege to serve them."


Douglas Walshe


A Briton, who served with Serbians in WWI
