Look, courage to me is, for everyone, a little bit different. There is physical courage and there is also the courage to come forward when something is not going quite right and to stand up when everyone else may be going the opposite way and say "No, hang on, that's not quite right".

So there are two forms of courage I suppose and for me being in Defence, I suppose, the physical courage or that aspect of it is easier to explain because it's pretty straightforward. When you do something on the battlefield, it can be observed and people recognise when that goes down.
