18.LT. MELVILL, young, dapper, inspects the Martini Henry

rifles of a company of

REDCOATS who are lined up near the BASUTOS. A CSM (SOT.

WILLIAMS)

stalks behind MELVILL.

ONE REDCOAT, young, thin, gangling, turns his head slightly to

peek at the

Basutos, and the swift eye of SOT. WILLIAMS detects the

disaffection. The young

redcoat (PTE. WILLIAMS) turns, guilty at being caught out of

the 'Attention'

position. The CSM (SOT. WILLIAMS) leans forward until his face

is one inch

from that of his quavering prey.

SGT. WILLIAMS (Shouting)

You moved (With more restraint) You movedgo and tell the NCO

of that black shambles that you love 'im more than you love

me(Shouting) NOW'

19.PTE. WILLIAMS blinks, swallows then runs over to the

Basuto's NCO.

NCO (Addressing the Basutos)

You're not fit to be in the British army you different coloured

articles.

STRAIGHTEN UP! You're like a load of bloody herd boys! (He

suddenly becomes aware of PTE. WILLIAMS' presence).

PTE. WILLIAMS

I'm to tell you Corporal, that I love you more than my Colour

Sergeant

The Basuto's NCO walks up to PTE. WILLIAMS.

NCO:

That's frightening... Get out of my bloody sight lad. And put

your rifle

over your head and double round this field (shouting) until you

drop

bloody dead. Now move, get on with it, at the double.

The Basutos, laughing, raise their shields into the air in

general amusement as

PRIVATE WILLIAMS runs past.

NCO:

Shut up! Get back in the ranks you shower of animals.

20.CHELMSFORD, still on horseback, surveys the encampment. He

salutes to SOT.

WILLIAMS. CREALOCK, as always, is in attendance.

SGT. WILLIAMS

Facing the ranks:

Company Shoulder arms.... (LT. MELVILLjoins SOT.

WILLIAMS) Present arms.

LT. MELVILL turns standing to attention, saluting as CHELMSFORD

passes.
