NELSON ON DEATH

wallpaper and found, like a gem in a Christmas cracker, an ancient inn. Bits of the "White Hart" thus discovered, strike old soldiers as new-fangled. The seventeenth century is all very well, but it is nothing like the good old days. Nevertheless, they drink there, because it is "Fat Fan's". If a cataclysm washed the place out, the naked site would still bear the name ... Fan's, Good Old Fan's, Old Fat Fan's. There is nothing to be done about it.
Sergeant Nelson is down on a visit. He was entitled to seven days' leave. He had nine pounds in credit, and has drawn the money. Beyond the Army, that one-eyed hero would be lonely. It is true that he has a relation here and there; but nothing that you might describe as a family: To him, Sergeant Crowne's handclasp is the touch of a vanished hand, and the faded echoes of the Pirbright bugles the sound of a voice that is still. The Black Huts are home sweet home. The ranges are the lost horizons of sweet youth. "Fat Fan's" is a tender memory of the springtime of things. Time is a swine that snuffles up everything; but some things Time can never swallow.
You can imagine with what grimly suppressed eagerness te made the roundabout journey. But he comes into "Fat Fan's" with perfect nonchalance. It might be his own mess. His heart bounds like a rabbit in a bag as he sees Crowne, Hands, and Dagwood at the bar. But his face remains rigid. Only his eye celebrates. He says :
" All-ha, Crowney. Ah-ha, Hands. Yah, Dag. Drink?"
" Ole Lipstick," says Sergeant Crowne.
