THE TEMPERING

small snap of a big woman, saying: "If you're carrying on with anybody while I'm away..."
Soldiers, here, have responsibilities. They must "make themselves acquainted with the Detail". That is to say, nobody tells them what they are going to have to do. No Sergeant leads them from place to place. The blowing of the Quarter alone warns them that the hour of a Parade is drawing near. Baths and haircuts become, once again, the personal responsibility of the individual soldier. A hairy neck means trouble. "Dirty Flesh" is a serious offence. Men have got away with murder, but never with a rusty rifle. Beyond such matters as cleanliness, subordination, and punctuality, which are taken for granted, the Detail Boards are the Tablets of the Law. In the frames which hang on the walls outside the Company office, the Sergeant-Major pins the Roneoed will of the C.O., whose every word is an ultimatum. There one may read how it has come to the notice of the powers that Gambling is taking place, and the statement that this practice must cease forthwith; the game of Lotto, or Housie-Housie, being the only indoor game officially sanctioned in the huts.... And it was there that the N.C.O.s and men of the Guards learned that, in future, when rushing the enemy with bayonets, they must shout not "Hurray", but "Hurrah"; at which everybody danced round everybody else, making savage points with imaginary bayonets and mincing "Oh, HurrAH, Duckie, HurrAH, HurrAH !"
But the Detail is The Word. Your destiny is written, not on your forehead, but on the Detail. Man disposes : the Commanding Officer details him.
