Firstly, in Journey’s End, Sherriff uses the character of Stanhope as a device to portray how dependant men were on alcohol during wartime, as it helped take their mind off things. In Journey’s End, Stanhope is seen as a very hard-working and loyal officer, however Osborne warns Raleigh to not “expect to find him – quite the same” which hints at the fact Stanhope has changed since his drinking problem. Sherriff has intentionally used alcohol as a motif; at home, Stanhope is a hero which is shown through Raleigh’s character who looks up to Stanhope. Stanhope is very flattered by this, and it is evident that he enjoys being an inspiration to others. However, as the play continues the audience begin to realise that Stanhope’s personality changes when he is drunk and Raleigh is left in disbelief.

Every time Chief witnessed his father drinking, he did not see his father “suck out of it, it sucked out of him” (Kesey 189). This made him lose faith not only in the power of his father, but himself as well.

Wesley lives under the shadow of his brother Frank and as the story progresses he is slowly escaping it. However, despite Wesley’s wilted physique and lack of superiority in the Hayden family hierarchy, he possesses a great deal of moral virtue and mental strengths. First of all, Wesley’s leg injury leads to other factors to develop Wesley as a better and stronger man. In his life he goes through many obstacles, such as his failure to go to war, and thus becoming the underdog of the Hayden family. This is discovered when the patriarch, Julian Hayden, says to his son Wesley “Ever since the war…Ever since Frank came home in a uniform and you stayed home, you’ve been jealous” (118).
