Oh, and "How is the dear young boy? Drinking like a fish, as usual?"
Don't say that. " He's is a long way the best company comander we've got.
Yes, it's been expected for the last month.
I understand why Stanhope drinks that much and I don't think we must be disrespectful with him.
Yes, we were at school together , he was oe of the big fellows. "Of course, I wasn't in the same class as Dennis"
Stanhope is a hero, he looks splendid!
Captain Stanhope commands the company. Do you know him?
I asked my uncle if he could get me into this battalion, but told me that I should be treated like everybody else.
I know this isn't a coincidence and Stanhope won't like this.
Hardy and Osborne talk. Hardy reveals Stanhope reputation as a heavy drinker and the planned big attack.
Hello, Stanhope!"I was told to report to your company,Stanhope."
This is not a coincidence, I am ashamed, I don't want Raleigh to see me like this.
"Oh. I see. Rather a coincidence."
This neuralgia gets worse every day!
Raleigh arrives and speaks to Osborne. He reveals his childhood friendship with Stanhope.
"I wonder if he really is bad. He looks rotten."
"You've done pretty well. An M.C. and a company."
Ok, calm down
Raleigh will tell his sister about my drinking problems. Additionally I don't want the responsability of Raleigh.
I know, I will censor his letters until I die in the big attack.
"Another little worm trying to wriggle home"
Raleigh tells Osborne that he spoke with his uncle and asked if he could fight in the same regiment as Stanhope. Raleigh explains that his uncle shouted at him for asking him to do something like that and that Raleigh should: “…be treated like everybody else – “
"Kiss you be damned!" You go to sleep."
Are you comfortable?
Stanhope and Raleigh first meet in the play. Stanhope doesn't seem to be very impressed about Raleigh arrival, there is tension and awkwardness.Hibbert returns from duty, suffering neuralgia.
Stanhope talks with Osborne about Hibbert and how he is feeling about Raleigh arrival. He tells he will censore all his letters so Raleigh's sister doesn't get to know about his drinking problems.
This is not fair why did Raleigh had to come to my company.
Stanhope is drunk and Osborne puts him to sleep. He is concerned about Stanhope. Osborne stands besides him and watches him for a moment.
I'm concerned for him, he works too much and drinks too much.
