THE RAW MATERIALS

curl his lip at his medal and call it a bit of tin .., and secretly polish it for hours.
He says he volunteered out of spite, because of the shortage of bananas.

He admires above all things the quality of toughness. I don't mean toughness in the current sense of the term -not the toughness one associates with naughty little hats, tight lips, scowls, criminality, and offensive manners. I mean the quality of resistance : the quality that makes man survive. Galileo would have been a Tough Guy to Barker because he couldn't find it in himself to deny that the earth revolved round the sun. He would regard as tough the gangster who never squealed; also, Scott at the Antarctic or Sir Richard Grenville sailing into the guns of the armada of fifty-three, or Tom Sayers fighting with bare knuckles against Heenan, or Van Tromp hoisting at his masthead the broom with which he was going to sweep England off the seas, or Blake battering Van Tromp; or Ney fighting Wellington, or Wellington fighting Ney. Barker loves cold courage-in effect, the triumph of the soul over the nerves.
Thus, it is safe to prophesy a friendship between Bob Barker the Cockney and Harry Bullock of Bedfordshire.
Barker flips Bullock a Woodbine. Bullock gives Barker a light. He is a dark man, with a dour expression, a knotted forehead, a sombre glow in his eyes, and a swollen upper lip. Bullock is a bruiser. He is one of those boxers of whom nobody ever heard. His greatest fight was against one Nippy Oliver. Nobody
