THE TEMPERING

The adjacent villages are made up of skimpy little Edwardian villas, and look like little bits of Lewisham or Shepherd's Bush.

The villagers are familiar with the bugle-calls, which sound from dawn to dark and are audible for miles around : they hear Lights Out and adjust their clocks. All day long, manceuvring squads march out and back : Coldstreamers, singing You'll Be Far Better Og in the Moosh, or Scots Guards preceded by skirling bagpipes. They go out on Stunts, sometimes in the dead of night behind dim and sinister lamps; sometimes in column of route through spitting rain; sometimes armed with picks and shovels in the wake of a lorry-load of revetting hurdles and barbed wire. There is a coming and going of dispatch-riders, travelling like projectiles. All roads lead to the Camp. You get to it over a bridge that is all ready for blowing up. You pass a languid canal, brilliantly scummed with green algae.
To the right of the road, going into Camp, lie the huts and the squares. To the left, the Messes of the gods and demigods; officers and sergeants. The road runs on, past the Y.M.C.A., past the Camp Theatre and the bright new huts that the Scots Guards live in ... into a woodland of silver birch trees, and away to
