Quote #4

    A pulse in the eternal mind, no less
      Gives somewhere back the thoughts by England given (10-11)

The speaker imagines death as a return home. After death, the speaker re-experiences all of his English memories. The only way soldiers will ever know the life they knew before the war is by dying and going to heaven.
