Excerpt from The Fledgling

WE were put on active duty at the front about the first of the year; in fact, I spent New Year's night in a dugout within pis tol-shot of the Germans. It was quite a celebration, as the French Government had provided champagne, cakes, and oranges for all, and every one was feeling in a cheery mood. When dinner was over, each of us chipped in his day's ration of army wine (about a pint), and with a little brandy, some oranges, sugar, and a packet of spices I had been commissioned to get, we brewed a magnificent bowl of hot punch, or mulled wine. First The Day of Victory was toasted, then, France; then, with typical French consideration.
