CHAPTER XV

Here's to good old porter,
The stuff to make you shorter,
Here's to good old porter, drink it down.
Rolling home, rolling home, rolling home, rolling home,
By the light of the sil-ver y moo-oo-oo-oon, ah ha ha ha ha
Ah ha ha ha ha. Here's to good old porter, drink it down.

One after the other they led off a new verse with a new drink :

Here's to good old gin,
The stuff to make you thin.

or
Here's to good old sherry,
The stuff to make you merry.

Soon the drinks and their rhymes grew more spicy. Port, cider, beer, whisky, rum, fiz, brandy, and cherry brandy were toasted with wild enthusiasm, and the light of the sil-ver-y moon became louder and louder in its setting. One file in the middle of Y company took no notice of their singing. A packet of cigarettes had been handed round and small clouds of smoke floated away among the forest of rifles, that crossed and clattered against each other at every step.
Then Huntley's section started the tune of"' The Church's One Foundation," and the chorus was quickly taken up. A shepherd on the hillside shaded his eyes as the column passed. The words came strange to him :

We are the ragtime army,
The E.C.O.T.C.
We cannot shoot, we cannot march,
No bloody use are we.
But when we get to Berlin,
The Kaiser he will say,
Hoch, hoch, mein Gott, what a damn fine lot
Are the E.C.O. T. C.
