The Gendarme

“These things I know: I served in the Ottoman army, I was part of a unit.  I fought the British at what they call Gallipoli. I was wounded, my face and head and clothes so battered I was mistaken for a British soldier. I was evacuated to a British hospital ship, then a military facility in London.  I have admissions slips, dates, facts. I have lost memory, yes, but these things are documented. And then this dream comes, this fantasy, but I see no soldiers. This could be any place. Any time.”
