They shall not grow old / Вони більше не постаріють: весь фільм

Оригінал англійською Переклад українською

And another.

# · 51:15.70051:17.200

The Germans could see the steam
and smoke from the steam engine.

# · 51:19.57051:23.990

So then it was mostly petrol engines

# · 51:23.99051:26.740

which used to run up
to the trenches.

# · 51:26.74051:29.200

The light railway only went
as far as the communication trench,

# · 51:32.03051:35.030

and then we had to push the thing
along by hand.

# · 51:35.03051:37.740

Somebody came along and said,
"This is it, we're going

# · 51:41.78051:43.910

"to be home by Christmas!

# · 51:43.91051:45.530

"We'll just go down the road

# · 51:45.53051:47.280

"and look in a field there,
you'll see."

# · 51:47.28051:49.620

Wouldn't tell us why.
Anyway, we went down.

# · 51:49.62051:51.950

They were on the roadside covered
with tarpaulin sheets.

# · 51:51.95051:55.320

You could see nothing
except a square outline.

# · 51:55.32051:59.120

And then the officer said, "These
are supposed to be hush-hush."

# · 51:59.12052:02.070

When we asked what it was,
the simple reply was "tanks".

# · 52:02.07052:05.070

Knowing the shortage of water,
we naturally assumed water tanks

# · 52:05.07052:09.030

and thought that we were
getting reserve supplies.

# · 52:09.03052:11.240

It was one of the best-kept secrets.

# · 52:11.24052:13.740

We were delighted because
these wonderful machines

# · 52:13.74052:16.030

were going to win the war.

# · 52:16.03052:17.410

Soon everybody would be home again.

# · 52:18.95052:20.990

Of course, it didn't
happen like that.

# · 52:20.99052:23.030

We were taken out of the line
and had intensive training.

# · 52:25.78052:30.030

Plunge the bayonet into the sack,
shout like hell.

# · 52:30.03052:34.320

It was to get used to plunging
them into somebody's body.

# · 52:34.32052:37.910

Then we fired our rifles
on the rifle range.

# · 52:37.91052:40.570

Firing rifle grenades
is a specialist job.

# · 52:48.03052:50.410

But they were clumsy.

# · 52:52.57052:54.160

I didn't like them much.

# · 52:55.41052:57.160

Forced marching, marching without
a rest and also a frontal attack,

# · 52:58.82053:03.030

right flank attack,
left flank attack,

# · 53:03.03053:05.370

both flanks attack,
night attack,

# · 53:05.37053:07.700

and we wondered what the devil
all this training was for.

# · 53:07.70053:10.160

BAGPIPES PLAY

# · 53:10.16053:13.160

The corps commander said that
he had just received instructions

# · 53:13.16053:16.370

to go ahead with an operation
to break through the German lines.

# · 53:16.37053:20.410

Suddenly we were called to parade
with full marching order,

# · 53:22.49053:25.240

and we had to go back up the front,
and we'd only been out of the line

# · 53:25.24053:28.030

a couple of days.

# · 53:28.03053:29.530

We could see streams of supplies,
mostly ammunition columns,

# · 53:29.53053:33.320

going up toward the front.

# · 53:33.32053:35.700

We didn't have a lot of notice,
but we knew it was going

# · 53:35.70053:38.120

to be a big advance.

# · 53:38.12053:39.490

So batteries pushed forward,

# · 53:53.87053:55.490

forward positions filled up
with ammunition.

# · 53:55.49053:57.620

Let's get these ladders up.

# · 53:57.62054:00.280

As the great push drew nearer,
the line livened up. It began to get

# · 54:00.28054:04.280

much more dangerous
and not nearly so much fun.

# · 54:04.28054:06.950

And we learnt that
a bayonet charge was to be made

# · 54:06.95054:09.700

on German machine gunners.

# · 54:09.70054:12.950
