THE TEMPERING

side, a Jerry plane came swooping down. He reloaded, just like he was handling a short Lee-Enfield, and laid back, supporting the anti-tank on his foot, and fired at the plane. And so help me God he brought it down. I didn't learn till afterwards that the first shot broke Cocky's collarbone. The whole point was, he was annoyed."
" What 'appened to Cocky?" asks Crowne. "I put 'im inside, once, for insubordination."
" Oh, Cocky was always in and out of the moosh," says Bearsbreath. "He went absent once. The inside story of that was this : Cocky had a sister. See? She was all the relations he had. Cocky was sort of attached to this sister. Well, one day she got into trouble. Some bloke. This bloke treated her rough. She was a soppy sort of piece, and couldn't take care of herself. This bloke gave her a black eye one night when she asked him to sort of marry her. Cocky got to hear. He couldn't very well ask for a long week-end just to give a bloke a hiding. And Cocky never told a lie in his life. He couldn't. If he tried, he got tongue-tied and contradicted himself. So he just done a bunk, and went home. He borrowed the fare off of me. That's how I knew. He got hold of this feller, and gave him the biggest coating you ever saw in your life. Then he came back, reported himself, and paid off fourteen days' C.B. That was in peace-time. If he'd explained it to the C.O., I don't know, but I dare say the C.O. would have let him off light. He didn't like to. Said it made his sister out to be not respectable. The funny part is, this bloke married Cocky's sister, and has never raised a hand to her since."
