comrades, Bourne finds ‘himself looking at his companions as it were from a remote distance’ (MPF, 71), and analyzing his differences from them. He feels alienated, but is compelled to make the best of his circumstances. He discusses his feelings with the chaplain: I don’t suppose I have anyone, whom I can call a friend. I like the men, on the whole, and I think they like me.[…] I have one or two particular chums, of course; and in some ways, you know, good comradeship takes the place of friendship.

, customs, behaviours and values. This can have consequences for the ways in which others may or may not make migrants feel ‘at home’ on arrival in a new place. In Chapters 3 and 4 we looked in detail at the ways in which nationalist discourses attempt to construct ‘deep, horizontal comradeship’ by setting ‘norms and limits’ for the nation’s people.

-operative endeavours, carried on in the spirit of comradeship, are a wish of humanity that is old and ever new … The success of the Red Cross in its international work is undoubtedly due to the wise and steadfast resoluteness with which it has, from the very beginning of its existence, based its work upon the respect and the power of national endeavours. 50 In 1936 the DRK had come under direct control of the Nazi Party. By May 1936, Saxe-Coburg could announce that the ‘transformation of the German Red Cross according to National-Socialist principles has been carried out

Australian reportage emphasised the bonds formed among dominions by the undertaking, a demonstrable ‘comradeship in Empire’.55 It also stressed the 1911 games as the starting point for future collaboration that looked beyond – perhaps even dissolved – national boundaries.

War called forth the essentials demanded by manhood: loyalty and comradeship, command and obedience, and courage. Soldiers sacrificed themselves for their nation and for their fellow comrades. Liberal politicians in the First World War had stayed at home, immune from danger, chatting away in their feckless parliaments while the youth of their societies were consumed in distant battlefields. In so far as there was a common content to the doctrines
