Excerpt from Sir Charles Wyndham It is not a pretty job to be an army surgeon in time of war, and anything less like his dreams of an artistic career can scarcely be imagined. It was a grim and painful experience. Speaking in 1899, at a banquet given by the London Eccentric Club, Wyndham made an eloquent appeal on behalf of the soldiers then fighting in South Africa, and in the course of his speech said Some stray records may have reached your ears of a time when, not with bayonet and rifle, but with bandages, probes and chloroform, I served with the Federal forces during the longest and most bitter conflict of modern days. Then I learned for the first time, and at first hand, what war really means, war - which if it does not make life worth the living, at least makes death worth the dying Whose sunlight is fame and glory whose clouds are suffering and death in the fields - sorrow and want in the home - the home abandoned by the soldier at his country's call. I had opportunities of watching the soldier under every kind of Circum stance, in fair weather and in foul - now flushed with victory, now grimly patient under reverse. I have heard his wild shout in the fury of onset, and watched him set his teeth in the stern quietude of desperate resistance.
