TROTTER:
Again?

HIBBERT:
Yeah.

TROTTER:
Are you sure?

HIBBERT:
Double sure.

Here we go.

Yeah. Done you again, Hibbert.

HIBBERT:
You're a bloody cheat.

Language.

One last kiss.

I might never see you again.

(SPEAKING FRENCH)

Hibbert. Time to parade.

(BOTH SPEAKING FRENCH)

Stanhope.

It's time.

TROTTER:
Here we go again.

(WHISTLES) That's for you, son.

Merci.

(CHUCKLES)

Au revoir, mademoiselle.

Bonne chance, monsieur.

Merci.

(CHICKENS CLUCKING)

SERGEANT MAJOR:
Company, right turn!

All present and correct, sir.

Thank you, Sergeant Major.

Sir.

Company, by the centre!

Quick march!

Left right, left right,

left right, left!

Left right, left right,

left right, left!

Left right, left right,

left right, left!

Left right, left right,

left right, left...

We're here because we're here because

We're here because we're here

We're here because we're here because

We're here because we're here

We're here because we're here because

We're here because we're here

OFFICER 1:
Here we go, lads.

Out you get.

(INDISTINCT CHATTER)

Transport office over there, sir.

Sir.

Lieutenant?

Second Lieutenant Raleigh, sir.

You're to report

to the officers' quarters,

down the bottom on the right.

And do you know

where I could find the General?

Yes, he's in the stable block,

but that's all off limits to you,

Lieutenant.

Sir.

(INDISTINCT CONVERSATIONS)

CORPORAL:
Left, right, left, right!

SERGEANT MAJOR:
Attention. Attention!

By the left! Quick march!

Left right, left right,

left right, left...

Yes, sir?

Is this the General's office?

It is, sir. Now's not a good time, sir.

Could you tell him his nephew's here

to say hello?

Yes, sir.

Follow me, sir.

Righto.

(TELEPHONE RINGING)

(TYPEWRITERS CLACKING)

GENERAL:
Draw to a close now. Carry on.

Sir.

GENERAL:
Your father put you up to this?

Sir?

What is it you're after?

An old school friend is out here, sir,

and when I'm posted to my unit,

I wondered if it'd be possible

for it to be his battalion, sir?

Anyone I know?

I don't think so.

A scholarship boy. Stanhope.

MC at Vimy Ridge.

Captain Stanhope?

Yes.

We used to spend a lot of time together.

He's been out here almost three years.

You don't want to join them,

not now of all times.

I do, sir.

They may have a hell of a time of it.

That's just what I'm hoping for, sir.

Here you are, sir.

I shouldn't make exceptions

just because I happen to be your uncle.

No, sir.

How are your father's crocuses?

Not up to much.

I told him he'd set them too deep.

(TELEPHONE RINGING)

Had some grub?

Yes, on the boat over, sir.

Well, then...

Evacuation, Lieutenant?

Just saving what we can, sir.

(MUD SQUELCHING)

Mr Osborne, go and find Captain Hardy.

OSBORNE:
Righto, sir.

Number Nine Platoon, to the right.

Come on.

Come on, lads. Quickly.

Come on. Keep coming.

Straight down to the right.

Keep going, boys.

Eleven Platoon, to the right.

Keep it moving. Come on.

(SIGHS)

Sir.

Sir.

Hardy!

Hardy.

All your fellas here then, Osborne?

Stanhope's just sorting out the mess

you've left these trenches in.

I wouldn't want to be

his second in command,

sober old thing like you.

If I wanted your sympathy, Hardy,

I'd ask for it.

You already have it, chum.

SOLDIER:
Excuse me, sir.

HARDY:
Big German attack

is expected any day now.

We're off in the nick of time.

Well, it's been expected

for more than a month.

Well, but there's more Boche transport

coming up than usual.

More trains puffing in
