Two days. It feels like a year.

CLAYTON:
And if you survive a year,

it will feel like a bloody lifetime.

(TIFFIN SOBS QUIETLY)

WOODWARD:
We nearly came a-gutser.

A Fritz machine gunner

got a bead on us.

Yeah, it's Boris. It's a farm

building.

They call it the Red House.

CLAYTON:
Solid as bloody Gibraltar.

Our artillery's been blasting

away at it for a week.

Well, a direct hit'd

make a bloody difference.

- (BOMBARDMENT CONTINUES)

- TIFFIN:
Arggh!

(CRIES LOUDLY)

They have their own dugouts, you

know.

A bit of air will see him right.

You got a home, son?

Wollongong, sir.

Coal miner?

- Gold, right?

- Silver, lead. Broken Hill.

- (LOUD EXPLOSION)

- (TIFFIN SOBS)

Sweetheart?

Wife.

Wife?

Sweetheart.

You got a photograph, Tiffin?

She's, um...

TIFFIN:
My mum, sir.

(McBRIDE LAUGHS)

(McBRIDE AND WOODWARD LAUGH)

You're not even real soldiers, are

you?

I mean, what in God's name

are you doing here?

Tunnelling under German lines.

Protecting your trenches.

- CLAYTON:
From?

- WOODWARD:
German tunnellers.

CLAYTON:
Who didn't show up

until you arrived

and who are now attempting to do

the exact same bloody thing.

Your point being?

That it was bad enough

my men being shelled from above

and shot at from in front.

Now they're being mined

from underneath.

(TIFFIN CRIES)

If the man is wounded, Woodward,

then for Christ's sake send him

to the dressing station.

If he's not, then he should be

back on duty.

Either way, he shouldn't be here.

If you want my opinion,

neither should you.

(TIFFIN CONTINUES CRYING)

Good to feel wanted, eh, Tiffin?

Wouldn't like to think we were over

here

putting our arses on the line

for nothing.

Clayton's alright. He's just got

the wind up him, that's all.

Hides it well.

People do.

Seems a shame to waste this.
