Erich Maria Remarque about us. One of us will say: "Well, boys .... " Or "It . was a near thing that time .... " And for a mo- ment we fall silent. There is in each of us a feel- ing of constraint. We are all sensible of it· it ' needs no words to communicate it. It might eas- . ily have happened that we should not be sitting here on our boxes to-day; it came damn near to that. And so everything is new and brave, red poppies and good food, cigarettes and summer breeze.
