Captain Blair certainly seems to have been a bit of a trench raid specialist.
He could be said to have been foremost in the attempts to dominate No Mans Land and make it
not no mans land, but "ours".

You have to salute the bravery that makes a man risk his life on a regular basis in the black and
dangerous areas between the lines at night. Especially in the run up to the Big Push of 1916.
Unfortunately his luck did not hold out......
