    Summary

    It wasn’t that he didn’t notice that there was something odd from the start... It was just that it was Christmas night, everyone was half-drunk and bored daft and Sir Henry Percy was a knight of the Garter, Warden of the east marches, Royal Lieutenant in Wales, not a peasant to be affrighted by bogles, wodwos and salvage men nor a florid Celt to speak credulously of trepidations, portents and freaks.

    (The dreams were another thing, another thing entirely, only a fool could fail to see the difference.)

    Of course it was a pleasantry. There was nothing else on earth it could have been.

    Summary

    The three of them have draped a tarpaulin over their bit of the trench--or what Archie calls a tarpaulin, although it's scarcely better than a thin cotton sheet worn translucent with cold sweat and the steady friction of night-tremors.
