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

went into the interior of Asia and tried to take more gold or more oil, he might be seriously injured at once. He must persuade poor men, who are numerous, to go there for him. And perhaps this is what Lloyd George, fertile in counsels, has decreed. He has tried to enter Asia by means of the Greeks. It was the Greeks who, seven years ago, failed to join England after they had promised to do so, and our graves in Gallipoli are the result of this. But Churchill the Fortunate, ever in office, ever magnanimous, bore the Greeks no grudge, and he and Lloyd George persuaded their young men to enter Asia. They have mostly been killed there, so English young men must be persuaded instead. A phrase must be thought of, and ' the Gallipoli graves ' is the handiest. The clergy must wave their Bibles, the old men their newspapers, the old women their knitting, the unmarried girls must wave white feathers, and all must shout ` Gallipoli graves, Gallipoli graves, Gallipoli, Gally Polly, Gally Polly,' until the young men are ashamed and think, What sound can that be but my country's call ? and Chanak receives them.
SECOND GRAVE : Chanak is to sanctify Gallipoli.
FIRST GRAVE : It will make our heap of stones for ever England, apparently.
SECOND GRAVE : It can scarcely do that to my portion of it. I was a Turk.
FIRST GRAVE : What ! a Turk ! You a Turk? And I have lain beside you for seven years and never known !
SECOND GRAVE : How should you have known? What is there to know except that I am your brother ?
FIRST GRAVE : I am yours ...
SECOND GRAVE : All is dead except that. All graves are one. It is their unity that sanctifies them, and some day even the living will learn this.
FIRST GRAVE : Ah, but why can they not learn it while they are still alive ?
His comrade cannot answer this question. Achi Baba passes beneath the sun, and so long as there is light warlike preparations can be seen on the opposite coast. Presently all objects enter into their own shadows, and through the general veil thus formed the stars become apparent.
