THE TEMPERING

rain might cancel, then the sky clears and a calm falls, the Dipper hangs empty in a lucid heaven, and a fatfaced moon sneers down at the men who wallow in the mire that the day's rain has left behind it. The feet of innumerable Guardsmen have kicked the ground to powder. The earth, when wet, is of the consistency of clotted cream. When dry it flies about. It is Passchendaele in the winter, and Oklahoma in the summer. One makes fantastic detours as the Quarter blows for C.O.'s Parade, to avoid puddles of unknown depth. But when the sun comes out, the very dandelions seem to blink in the dust. So say the old soldiers. From October to July, they groan, the place is like the countryside beyond the Malamute Saloon in "Dangerous Dan M'Grew" ... it takes an Amundsen to get from the Post Office to the Y.M.C.A. From July to October, well, you might as well be in the Foreign Legion. And the flies, they say, are unnatural. The military policeman from Gloucester says that the flies are caused by the dust. "Dust creates flies, the experts reckon," he says, "just as earth creates wurrrums or shirts create fleas if you're not careful. It's a proof that thur's a God, the experts reckon. .."
It is true that there are too many flies here in the warm weather; flies of exceptional intelligence, that might have come out of a Silly Symphony ... flies that tickle and flies that drone; flies that bite, and flies that simply look threatening; dragon-flies, hover-flies, greenflies, even butterflies. On every side there stretches the decent, amiable Surrey countryside, full of gracious gardens behind trimmed green slabs of hedge. But the Camp itself is a shanty-town of huts.
