    Jerry begins smoking. Pg Bennett and Alec discuss what happened to Jerry. After all, the future whether here or there is equally unknown. Desmond is an ass. Autumn began to stroke the evening air with frost.

    She moved her head slightly away from him. Four score and ten, sir. Pg Jerry explains that he found out his father is dead. All-in-all a powerful and compelling read - and probably at sometime a re-read.

    Please review the types of cookies we use below. They hardly see any action for a long time and stay far off the trenches for a while. Major Glendinning says that Jerry will be found and a court martial will decide his fate. Glendinning has the impression that Alec feels he is better than everyone else. So for the waiting days I have only the past to play about with.
