We band of brothers

“We few, we happy few, we band of brothers.”  A great speech did Shakespeare write.
Here it is explained. The leadership in the real field of battle, against great odds.  You may find this interesting as well.
Here it is enacted. Kenneth Branagh. You may wish to go to about 2 mins 20 secs in.
A bit later King Henry speaks:
We are but warriors for the working-day;
Our gayness and our gilt are all besmirch’d
With rainy marching in the painful field;

And time hath worn us into slovenry:
But, by the mass, our hearts are in the trim;
You may perhaps recognize yourself in this situation: that time hath worn you down, yet still your heart is in the trim.
And may your Team have its heart half so much in the trim.
