THE FOUNDRY

you've got to suffer to be beautiful. ... Ain't you, you de-licious little peach-blossom?" he says, to Thurstan.
Before Thurstan can unload the insults which rise and fill his mouth, a bugle sounds, a siren moans, and Brand says :
" Jerry in the sky. Get in the trench."
The Guards' Depot exploits air-raids, and makes prompt action a part of Guards' training. We run to cover, and it is then that Sergeant Nelson, who, for eight weeks, will never let us out of his sight, tells us about the Wogs, "light of ear, bloody of hand," the Arabs; and tells tall stories in short sentences, of discipline and training in the,Guards. "And if I make your blood run cold-don't worry, because I'll warm it for you when I get you on the Square to-morrow. Definitely."

The Square is vast and flat; black-grey asphalt tickled by mysterious eddies of pale-brown dust. We have to pass a half-finished building to get to it. Bricklayers pause and look at us with some pity. One old man, splitting a speckled pink brick with one flick of a trowel, says: "Now you're for it, my boys." He is a little old man, incongruously got up in soiled blue serge, with a stiff collar and a bright strip of medalribbons. "Ah well, I was at Mons." To this, Barker, who is hiding his nervousness under a great froth of funny talk, says: "No wonder they retreated. Are you sure you don't mean Water-bloody-loo?"
" Laugh, my cock-oh," says the old man, "you'll never see what I saw !"
