In this clip Tom speaks about his feelings during the week and recalls that there was a great sense of uncertainty about what would happen next but that he didn't think the situation would 'go bad'. When asked by the interviewer if he felt fear he reflects on one incident, while under mortar fire, when he was on his own and thought to himself that he needed to keep his head down now. He states that for the most part he was aware that he had soldiers under his command and that he 'had to keep his end up'.
