Robert Crisp's gunner
On the 17th day of the Crusader Battle (3 December 1941?), when Robert Crisp spoke with his wounded gunner, his gunner asked Robert how he had done. Robert was sorry to lose his gunner, as he was a good man who had done well. Robert assured the gunner that he had done well. Robert says that "the good ones" want to know how they had performed, as they wanted to do well. This is based on the account in Robert Crisp's book Brazen Chariots.
