Argyle Making Up Its List of Casualties After an Attack
"Yet under heavy shell fire it was curious to look into their eyes-some of them little fellows from shops, civilians before, now, and after; you perceived a wide, rather frightened, piteous wonder in their eyes, a patient look turned towards you, saying not 'What the blankety, blankety hell is this?' but 'Is this quite fair? We cannot move, we are but little animals. Is it quite necessary to make such infernally large explosive shells to kill such infernally small and feeble animals as ourselves?' I quite agreed with them, but had to put my eye-glass firmly in my eye and make jokes; and looking back, I blush to think to the damnably bad jokes I did make. - the late Ivar Campbell, Captain, Argyle and Sutherland Highlanders."
