THE FINISHED PRODUCT

German blockhouses, two, that is ! First of all, look, he rushes one blockhouse and kills the whole lot of the garrison, all alone. Then he takes the second one with his company. Then a party was detailed to clear up a line of blockhouses which had been passed, see. Bob Bye volunteers to take charge. He cleans them all up. He takes a third objective. That is a man, he was ! A Glamorgan boy, from Penrhiwceiber. Like me."
The Scot says, with a grim air of acrimony :
" Did you hear of Freddie McNess, in 'sixteen? He was wounded so that his neck and jaw were pretty well blown away, while organising a counter-attack. But he went through a bomb-barrage alone, to bring us fresh supplies of bombs; wounded and alone. He kept us going, shouting and swearing and cursing and laughing, throwing bomb after bomb like a mad machine. And then he fell down with hardly a drop of blood left within him. Hum. V.C."
" Tom Witham did pretty much the same," says Geordie. "A Burnley boy. Coldstream Guards, 1917. V.C."
" :And Johnnie Moyney?" says a giant Mick, an Irish Guardsman with a stiff leg, and a shrapnelpocked cheek. "Old Johnnie Mayney. Didn't he hold the post with us for ninety-six solid hours without water and with no food? And on the fifth day didn't he take us out and give Jerry hell with the Lewis and Mills bombs; and cut a way back far us; and cover our retirement, and bring every last damned one of us safely back? There was a V.C. for you, a real V.C. ! I wonder what happened to Johnnie Moyney..."
