The 'Breaker' was only human and made a few 'mistakes' just as anybody would do today (eg running a yellow light, doing more than the prescribed speed limit, having a few more beers than perhaps one should etc, etc.......). He ordered a few prisoners (and perhaps a German missionary) to be shot. But never let us lose sight of the circumstances that led Morant to make these decisions and to act in the way he did. And let us also not forget that 'The Breaker' also wrote some BLOODY GOOD POETRY! In a prison cell I sadly sit, a sad crest fallen chappy.........
