They shall grow not old, as we that are left to grow old.
Age shall not weary them, Nor the years condemn.
At the going down of the sun, And in the morning,
We will remember them.

The Ode" or "Act of Remembrance",
is the fourth stanza of a poem by Laurence Binyon

By now death had become a familiar, and they talked about it in a half derisive deprecating slang.  In the same way as the Chinese will laugh at other people’s pain it became a huge joke when the men bathing off the beach were caught in a burst of schrapnel, or when some poor devil had his head blown off while he was in the latrine.  There had to be some sort of expression which would help to rationalize the unbearable circumstances of their lives, and some way to obtaining relief from the shock of it all, and since tears were impossible this callous hard-boiled laughter became the thing.  They were not fatalists.  They believed that a mistake had been made in the landing at Gabatepe and that they might easily have to pay for it with their lives : but they very much wanted to go on living, they were all for the battle and they hoped and believed obscurely that in the end they would win.
