PART I - THE PRESENT
CHAPTER VII - OUR GRAVES IN GALLIPOLI

Scene : the summit of Achi Baba, an exposed spot, looking out across the Dardanelles towards Asia and the East. In a crevice between the rocks lie two graves covered by a single heap of stones. No monument marks them, for they escaped notice during the official survey, and the heap of stones has blended into the desolate and austere outline of the hill. The peninsula is turning towards the sun, and as the rays strike Achi Baba the graves begin to speak.
FIRST GRAVE : We are important again upon earth. Each morning men mention us.
SECOND GRAVE : Yes, after seven years' silence.
FIRST GRAVE : Every day some eminent public man now refers to the ` sanctity of our graves in Gallipoli.'
SECOND GRAVE : Why do the eminent men speak of 'our' graves, as if they were themselves dead ? It is we, not they, who lie on Achi Baba.
FIRST GRAVE : They say ` our ' out of geniality and in order to touch the great heart of the nation more quickly. Punch, the great-hearted jester, showed a picture lately in which the Prime Minister of England, Lloyd George, fertile in counsels, is urged to go to war to protect ` the sanctity of our graves in Gallipoli.' The elderly artist who designed that picture is not dead and does not mean to die. He hopes to illustrate this war as he did the last, foi- a sufficient salary. Nevertheless he writes ' our ' graves, as if he was inside one, and all persons of position now say the same.
SECOND GRAVE : If they go to war, there will be more graves.
FIRST GRAVE : That is what they desire. That is what Lloyd George, prudent in counsels, and lion-hearted Churchill, intend.
SECOND GRAVE : But where will they dig them?
FIRST GRAVE : There is still room over in Chanak. Also, it is well for a nation that would be great to scatter its graves all over
