I don't know but I suspect that his decision was made there on the spot regardless of his own life, he was willing to give, so others may be successful in war
Did you know there is a memorial stone on the wall of the cemetry in the town of ICHEGEELA where he came.
I didn't but it is nice to know that that he is remembered by his birth place and thank you for your interesting comment.
