regiment. When Drake says ‘it is like…coming home’ Millington replies with ‘isn’t it, though?’ We then find out that Millington’s father was in fact the colonel of the regiment until 1881. Drake obviously is in awe of the regiment and couldn’t be happier that he’s there. He tells Millington ‘You will find only military honours here.

Later on in the funeral, the image of Sabas is negatively distorted when he tries to start a conversation with the colonel that does not concern the funeral in any way. “Sabas turned toward the colonel and said: Friend, what’s new with the rooster” [p.7].
