Ignoring the man in the corner for a moment, he looks over at their Corporal.

"We'll never find him in this."

He waves an arm at the window.

"Fog's too thick."

Blinking and scowling, he eased over to the door and, still keeping watch down the hallway, eased his head back into the opening and said.

"Somebody tell me what's going on?"

Aaron (Morley)

"I'm not sure he survived the fall. But even if he did, what can he tell someone. He seemed positively mad."

He turned to Phil.

"He jumped out the damned window."

He looked around at the others in the room then moved to the man who was bleeding.

"Lie down man. Someone get the medic up here." he said in Phil's direction.

He applied pressure to the wound.

"Any idea what set him off?"

“Medic!” shouts Corporal Slade as he grabs the gun from the floor “get one here now!

He looks over to Millbrook with a deep frown

“Dammit we have to at least try - go find some rope and torches I want that lunatic found before he does any more damage”



Morley is assisting the injured orderly on the floor. The wound looks nasty multiple stabs to the same area, a genuine frenzied attack with something long and sharp.

“Dunno” gasps the injured orderly in reply to Morley “ he was morphine’d up and out cold in the cot when I left. I came back about 10 minutes later to treat the others and he was standing in front of that picture - just staring at it. I spoke to him and he just went berserk and ....”


Almost immediately there are sounds of a second commotion downstairs

“To arms!” yelps a voice from the bottom of the stairs and then in a slightly more muffled tone as if being called from just outside “stand and be identified! Friend or foe?!”

“Now what?” growls Slade “you stay here until the orderly gets here (he points to Morley), you two (he points at Summers and Millbrook) bring those Lee-Enfield's and come with me. And make sure they are loaded."

"Yes Corporal."

And as Slade turns away, he shrugs helplessly at Aaron, not the best idea to split up but not much choice. His eyes and head nod towards the picture that the orderly pointed out. Aaron would have the opportunity to check it out, assuming he picks up on it.

"Come on Summers."

He follows Slade from the room.

Scowling, he gave his eyes another quick rub and readied his rifle.

"Lead on, Macduff."

Morley (Aaron)

He waited with the orderly until another medic showed up. He'd keep pressure on the wound if that's what was needed.

"Any idea why he was so interested in that painting? Let me guess, he swore it was watching him?" he said scoffingly out loud, but wondering if that's exactly what the guy thought. He'd definitely check it out once the other orderly came to take care of this guy.

The group heading downstairs passes a lone medic heading up in the opposite direction. Slade shouts out the direction and room number as he passes but doesn’t slow until he reaches the bottom of the Stairs.

Downstairs

The main front door surrounded up to ¾ of its normal height by a sandbag dog leg wall is open. Two of the uninjured Tommie’s , sentries to that entrance are busy grabbing .303 ammunition from an open box on the interior side of the sandbag wall. Their haste is such that rounds are being shoved into pockets rather than clipped up in an orderly fashion. A third man, just past the open door is bobbing up and down in front of the secondary exterior sandbag wall on the outside of the door. Thick soupy fog rolls in round the frame of the door and seems to persistently stick to the nearby floor like so much spilt milk.

“Whats going on here?”
Slade sternly asks


“Got people outside, at least 12 that I can see headin’ our way” answers one of the soldiers in flurry of motion “they aint saying the password or anything else for that matter. Recon it’s a Jerry sneak attack”

Slade frowns

“Walking towards us? That doesn’t sound right.”


He glances over at Millbook and Summers as he picks up a spare rifle resting against the inner sandbag wall

“Time to earn your pay lads. Get on that firing point outside the door and pop a round or two over the heads of whatever you see. If they don’t heel too - you know what comes next. No one gets past otherwise.”

He snaps a clip into his rifle with a slight smile

“We’ve had worse than this – don’t worry, just look out for eachother”


Upstairs


The orderly skids to a stop outside the door pulling a large kaki green bag from his side. Getting an immediate first impression from what Morley was doing he begins to unpack basic gauze and cotton padding to put over the wound. He glances over at the missing window and back to his casualty.

“What the hell happened, someone get thrown out the window?” he grunts as he sets to work

The injured man lets out a yelp as the orderly treating him unceremoniously begins to pack the wounds as best he can then looks back at Morley as he asks his question

“He had shell shock, out cold and shot up with morphine” he answers “He shouldn't even be moving. His mind was gone – only he knows what he saw. He just kept hacking at the thing saying the same thing over and over, like a man possessed.”



.......The large free standing wardrobe in the far corner of the room wobbles slightly on its sturdy short legs

"With me."

He says quietly to Phil, thinking that sticking together is a good thing right now. He has no concerns about firing a warning shot, he'll deal with what happens after as he sees fit. He grabs a handful of ammo on his way past, keeping his head low until he finds a position behind the sandbag wall that offers a place of cover to shoot from.

Keeping as much of himself in cover as possible, he aims high and squeezes the trigger.

Following his friend's example, he grabbed ammo and stuffed it in his pockets and then kneeled beside Nic.

"What are we shooting at..." he started asking but then saw and followed Nic's example of shooting high.

Morley (Aaron)

"Yeah, lost it and jumped out the damned window."

Once the man was being taken care of by the medic, Aaron stood and looked at the now moving wardrobe.

He stepped up to it and pulled hard on one handle, stepping to the side.
