THE TEMPERING

moind to join the Foreign Legion. Then, on the Sunday, war was declared. Oi was on the doorstep o' the Recruiting Office two hours before it opened. Oi loike War. War is noice : it gives yow a chance to 'ave a little peace."
" And what's all this got to do with Brummy Joe?" asks Sergeant Hands.
" Give me a chance to get a word in," says Bates. "Oi 'aven't started yet."
But Cookhouse sounds. We snatch up our knives and forks and go to tea.

In the course of this meal-mug of tea, slice-and-ahalf of bread, two-thirds of an ounce of margarine, and a Cornish Pasty which Barker describes as "all pasty and no Cornish"-Dale, of all men on God's earth, does something silly.
He is at the foot of the table. He wants to attract the attention of Hodge, who is pouring tea out of a three-gallon bucket. He shouts. Hodge doesn't hear, for a couple of hundred men are eating at the tops of their voices. There is an odd crust of bread lying ready to hand. Dale takes careful aim and throws it at Hodge. The crust misses our gigantic friend and-it is one of those things that luck alone can achieve; a thing beyond human skill, like the falling on its edge of a tossed coin-drops very neatly into the hand of the Company Quartermaster-Sergeant, who happens to be passing at the moment.
The Quartermaster swells. His chin comes up; his eyebrows go down. "Who done that?" he asks.
Dale, white as paper, gulps and says: "I did, sir."
