Then they All leave and another Bunch comes along who also done to know what the word a Drill Quot Means. A paly work makes a vicious Circle look like a straight Road. A i find that As a Rule most Johns can learn a Forward March without any mental Strain and every now and then an especially Bright group comes along who can do a Light or left flank without making me wish i had signed up for foreign duty. A but it takes a Man of great bravery and exceptional morale to give the order a rear March to some rookies. A you never know How Many will be dead or maimed when the dust clears away. A Many times i have rushed in and at great personal risk dragged some Little Chap from beneath the heels of a big lug. It is a very dangerous Man Euver and it is Only sheer Luck that my casualty rate Hasni to been higher. Ostrich style a some times i put my face in my hands and moan a Little but it Don t help much. They Are still there when i look up. A also i Ani developing a vast personal aversion to any number below five and if another John asks me if i really have marbles in my Mouth there is going to be less soldiers to carry on with the War.
