and the order not to fire was immediately given. Pte.

Jensen then marshalled his prisoners together, handed them

over to an escort of slightly wounded men, and rejoined his

  Never, perhaps, was the Victoria Cross more nobly 

won and more deservedly bestowed.

  It is such deeds as these, by men of friendly 

nations who have sacrificed everything in order to give

practical proof of their sympathies with the cause of the

Entente, that fill the hearts of both their countrymen and 

their adopted countrymen with pride. Such chivalrous

bravery in the face of an unscrupulous enemy provides not only

a bond between Danes and Englishmen, but a lesson that

every neutral man and woman may well take to heart.
