Private Quelch was a unique personality. He had joined the training depot with an ambition to get a commission in the army. In pursuit of his aim, he worked hard, drilled with enthusiasm and gained as much knowledge as possible by reading the borrowed training manuals intelligently. At first he became a hero in the eyes of his fellow soldiers. He badgered the instructors with questions. He interrupted them by asking questions or reminding them what they missed. His correct answers and exact knowledge impressed fellow soldiers but annoyed the instructors. Gradually, his habit of sermonizing showing off superiority, condescending attitude and horrible heartiness annoyed his colleagues as well. He was assigned permanent cook house duties as a punishment. But he did not learn any lesson even from it and continued sermonizing and fault finding.
