The Unknown Soldier

GRIST TO THE MILL PRESENTS:

Jack stayed on when the guns fell silent, to search the battlefields for the boys that could not go home - for the dead and the missing, for both enemy and friend - and amongst the rusty wire and unexploded bombs Jack is looking for something - looking for someone. He has a promise to keep and a debt to repay, and now there is this strange request from the generals.
