Iron Men

These young men are meeting each other for the first time.  Their first day of official employment after 
finishing university studies.

They are waiting at the platform of an English railway station to take them to the Commando Training
Centre for the Royal Marines. Ironing boards are part of their kit.  

What to say when there is so much to say, when the words can't get past the lump in the throat . . . ?
