Saint's Progress

Food was ridiculous to her. She sat there in the midst of a perfect hive of creatures eating hideously. The place was shaped like a modern prison, having tiers of gallery round an open space, and in the air was the smell of viands and the clatter of plates and the music of a band. Men in khaki were everywhere, and Noel glanced from form to form to see if by chance one might be that which represented, for her, Life and the British Army.

You stand quiet and keep a look-out, and you'll get a few minutes with him when he's done with 'is men. I wouldn't move, if I were you; he'll come to you, all right-can't miss you, there.' And, looking at her face, he thought: `Astonishin' what a lot o' brothers go. Wot oh! Poor little missy! A little lady, too. Wonderful collected she is. It's 'ard!' And trying to
