THE FOUNDRY

"It's a sort of general kind of word meaning punishment. You'll get to know the call: Defaulters-You can be a Defaulter as long as you like. As long as you answer your name. It might be Show Boots Clean. It might be Extra Drill. It might be C.B."
" What is C.B., Trained Soldier?"
" Confined to Barracks."
" But we're confined to barracks now."
" Yes, but only while you're Recruits. After you're done here, you're Guardsmen, and have the right to go out every night, duty permitting. You get a Permanent Pass, allowing you out of barracks from After Duty to Midnight. But if you get C.B., you can't go out. Defaulters sounds five minutes after Reveille. You've got to hustle to the Square and answer your name double time. During the day, Defaulters blows about Dinner Time, and every hour after about five, till ten-thirty. You've got to answer your name every time. If you don't, you're for it. Then there's extra drills, in Fighting Order-small pack, with groundsheet and mess-tins, pouches, braces, belt, rifle, bayonet, full water-bottle. And you've got to be spickand-span, or you might get another few days. The drills, usually,, are pretty tough, too. The game ain't worth the candle. For instance, you're very likely to get seven days or so for a dirty rifle. Well, a dust over and a pull-through 'll save you all that. Or being late for a parade : two minutes can land you seven days. Or over-staying your furlough, or being in possession of playing-cards, or answering back, or not answering back (answering back is Insubordination; not answering back is Dumb Insolence), or not being properly
