CHAPTER XI
BRITISH EXPEDITIONARY FORCE

THE barracks of the Seven-Four in Rouen had acquired a warlike air. In the courtyard, behind a long table made of three boards supported by trestles, the quartermaster-sergeants were seated running through mobilization papers. Huge figures at the end of each table identified the companies. Men in civilian clothes - bourgeois, workmen and peasants - stood in queues in front of the quartermasters waiting to check in. I took my place among them. When my turn came, an officer standing beside the table looked at my papers:

`Don't get excited,' they said to me. `It is not even certain that the English will come. They haven't declared war yet.'
I went to see a commandant whom I had known well since the last manoeuvres.
'Mon Commandant,' I said to him, `I do not know what this Mission H may be, but if it really is a matter of being an interpreter with the English, it seems to me absurd. I do not speak English at all well, whereas I think' I would make a good section leader.'
`You are right,' he said, `but there is nothing I can do about it. This mission was assembled independently of the regiment. It is in charge of General Huguet; he alone has authority over the men.'
I learned later that Mission H had been got together very secretly. One
