Everybody was talking about the powerful speech against squirarchy
which he had just delivered; even in the Fisher circle everybody talked about it except Horne Fisher himself who sat in a corner, lowering over the fire.
To stiffen Turkish resolve von Falkenhayn also had at his disposal what he called his 'corset staves': small detachments of German machine-gunners, aircraft and Austro-Hungarian artillery against which the fox hunting squirarchy
who commanded the English yeomanry regiments would mount a successful if costly Balaclava style charge.
The Squire does not labor, since the squirarchy
which he represents is maintained from rents paid by tenants.
