Excerpt from The Human Touch

It was about the size of an ordinary tennis lawn at the top, and it was deep enough to contain a work-man's cottage. It was a crater - a mine crater. Suddenly one morning the ground near by had shaken as if there was an earthquake; dugouts had rocked, candles and bottles had crashed wildly on to the cursing occupants lying on the floor, and It had appeared. Up above, a great mass of earth and debris had gone towards heaven, and in the fullness of time descended again; a sap head with its wooden frames had disappeared into small pieces; the sentry group of three men occupying it had done likewise. And when the half-stunned occupants of adjacent dugouts and saps, and oddments from the support line had removed various obstacles from their eyes and pulled themselves firmly together in order to go and investigate, they found that the old front line trench had been cut in two and blocked by the explosion.
