my old pal Nicholls," says the Grenadier. "My old pal Harry was the first V,C. of this war, and that's aPl there is to be said about it."
Georclie says a naughty word, laughs heartily, and says: "A Coldstreamer was the first V.C. of all. A chap called Strong. Crimea. Shell comes over and drops in among a mob of our boys. All right, laugh.. A shell, I tell you. A sort of holler iron ball, crammed with gunpowder, and fizzling with a fuse. Like a firework. Only dangerous. This thing comes plonk at their feet. It's due to go off in a split second. It's too big to run away from, and too heavy to lob back over the parapet. So Strong, a Coldstreamer, picks up this shell, and hugs it to him, and runs and runs and runs, gets to the parapet and tosses the shell over, just as it bursts."
" He wasn't the first V.C.," says the Scot, and the argument that follows may be heard a hundred yards away through all the noises of the Camp.
Then somebody says: "What d'you mean, `first V.C. since 1935?' There wasn't a war on in 1935."
" Get out of it," says the long Grenadier. "There's always a war on. There's always something, anyway. Up on the Indian frontier, there's raids, and there's all manner of skirmishes all the time. Nobody hears anything about 'em. But there are. And I tell you that medals get won every day, war or no war."
" You're a liar," says Geordie. "I don't believe a word you say. You and your Harry Nicholls. Don't make me laugh."
" I tell you it's true."
" Was you there?"
