I'm not too happy with our little friend Henry. He scorns the other soldiers for fleeing in the manner that they did, but is satisfied with theway he fled with "dignity and discretion." Not a good sign, but it could just be his immaturity showing through. As the SN said he also feels superior to Wilson because of his actions of returning the envelope to Wilson. That looks like to me that Henry is pitying someone who is already low.

I am sure that Henry's behavior is just his immature way of coping, but it is definitly frustrating to read how superior he thinks he is, almost as if he learned nothing during the battle.
