YPRES: Outpost of The Channel Ports. THE YPRES TIMES 15 During the war we played the game," and unless we continue to do so in these more peaceful days, we are not keeping faith with our fallen comrades. Sir Henry Newbolt has laid down the code of ethics of the man who played the game in the following lines: "To set the cause above renown, To love the game beyond the prize; To honour while you strike him down, The foe that comes with fearless eyes; To count the life of battle good, And dear the land that gave you birth. And dearer yet the brotherhood That binds the brave of all the earth." It's a simple creed worthy of the high ideal and purpose of our Elder Brethren," and it seems to me that, unless we pursue such an ideal, we are letting them down, and making their sacrifice appear futile. Our task is not easy: we have no longer the comradeship of the trenches, but we have the example of our fallen comrades to inspire us. The trust is ourslet us prove worthy.
