THE TEMPERING

a man like the great Charlie Yardley of the Training Battalion, or Britton; whose voice still paralyses men at eight hundred and fifty yards. Wars may come and go. Widnes will perform his duty, and take world calamity in his stride. It is feared, in certain quarters, that he may turn out to be heartless; but Sergeant Dagwood says that this kind of thing passes, like the gloom of adolescence; severity in aYoung Corporal, he says, like wildness in a Recruit,is not necessarily a bad sign.
But John Johnson changed. He, fundamentally, is the Brummagem Fly Boy. But the Army has dealt with Fly Boys, since time immemorial. When dogs bring forth cats, then Fly Boys will get away with things in the Guards. There was one incident which, I think, undermined Johnson's confidence in the fly technique. There is a shambling, big-boned man from the wildest moors of Yorkshire, a sort of peasant who falls down rather than sits, and has to get words up out of himself with a conscious effort. This man is called Old Jeddup, because Sergeants are always saying to him: "Hold yer head up. C'mon ! Old Jeddup !" He weighs sixteen stone. A young subaltern, on a night stunt, tried to teach him how to move silently. Old Jeddup melted into the heather like a weasel and came back with a buck rabbit : he used to be a poacher. We have thousands of such healthily lawbreaking sons of the soil in this army. Old Jeddup, bar by bar, bought five shillingsworth of chocolate to send to his little son. I-Ie packed it in a small box. He fumbled and tangled himself with the string in the presence of the Fly Boy, and ultimately got the box
