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

Оригінал англійською Переклад українською

It was just like
being made redundant.

# · 01:25:58.87001:26:01.030

That was very much
the feeling of everyone.

# · 01:26:01.03001:26:04.120

We were thoroughly upset,
we'd all got no work to go to.

# · 01:26:04.12001:26:07.280

"I don't want to go back."

# · 01:26:07.28001:26:09.410

There was no cheering, no singing -
we were drained of all emotion.

# · 01:26:09.41001:26:14.660

We were too far gone,
too exhausted to enjoy it.

# · 01:26:14.66001:26:19.320

All things come to an end,
and even a drama can go on too long.

# · 01:26:19.32001:26:23.490

It didn't end with a whimper,
but something very much like one.

# · 01:26:23.49001:26:26.780

I was very happy to leave.
I'd had enough, you know?

# · 01:26:43.12001:26:46.660

After a time, it begins
to wear on one, you know?

# · 01:26:46.66001:26:50.280

"Thank goodness the bloody thing
is over," that was all.

# · 01:26:50.28001:26:53.200

But so far as I was concerned,
I was out of it,

# · 01:26:53.20001:26:55.370

and now the next step in life.

# · 01:26:55.37001:26:57.490

The first thing we did was
write home, say we were all right,

# · 01:26:57.49001:27:00.620

making sure we got the date
on the envelope right.

# · 01:27:00.62001:27:02.990

To someone like myself,
who was interested in nature,

# · 01:27:02.99001:27:05.740

after the horrors that man had
made of the battlefront,

# · 01:27:05.74001:27:08.570

I was immensely delighted to find
shell holes in which I picked

# · 01:27:08.57001:27:12.620

lilies of the valley and larkspur,
and I pursued Camberwell Beauties

# · 01:27:12.62001:27:16.700

and swallowtail butterflies
along the banks of the Aisne river.

# · 01:27:16.70001:27:20.410

We went to Boulogne.

# · 01:27:20.41001:27:22.370

By the way, we came
home with full pack,

# · 01:27:22.37001:27:24.410

the only thing we left
behind was the bullets,

# · 01:27:24.41001:27:27.120

we had to discard those.

# · 01:27:27.12001:27:28.990

But we still kept our rifle.

# · 01:27:28.99001:27:30.870

We went over to Folkestone,
and there were long trestle tables

# · 01:27:30.87001:27:35.820

with very kind ladies,
and they gave you a sausage roll

# · 01:27:35.82001:27:39.370

or a bun and a cup of tea,
and that was very welcome.

# · 01:27:39.37001:27:44.030

We entrained to Victoria,
and there we broke up.

# · 01:27:44.03001:27:48.160

We went to the barracks,
and we just dumped rifles,

# · 01:27:48.16001:27:51.240

bayonets and everything,
and there were a lot of suits

# · 01:27:51.24001:27:53.950

on display, hats, shoes.

# · 01:27:53.95001:27:56.450

You could tell her which one
you wanted, style and colour,

# · 01:27:56.45001:27:59.030

and they measured you.

# · 01:27:59.03001:28:00.450

I was horrified by what I saw
when I came back here

# · 01:28:01.99001:28:05.240

and when one tried to get a job.

# · 01:28:05.24001:28:07.320

There was mass unemployment,
and I thought,

# · 01:28:07.32001:28:09.490

"This isn't much of a life."

# · 01:28:09.49001:28:11.240

It was a most difficult thing
to realise you're of

# · 01:28:11.24001:28:13.370

no commercial value.

# · 01:28:13.37001:28:14.780

It was a shame, the way
ex-servicemen were treated.

# · 01:28:14.78001:28:17.240

You weren't wanted.

# · 01:28:17.24001:28:18.620

Some places said,
"No ex-servicemen need apply,"

# · 01:28:18.62001:28:22.030

and that was the sort of attitude
you were up against.

# · 01:28:22.03001:28:24.740

One of my pals was killed, and when
I went home, the very first thing

# · 01:28:24.74001:28:29.160

that I did was
go to his mother, who,

# · 01:28:29.16001:28:31.570

if she'd had a frying pan,
she'd have hit me.

# · 01:28:31.57001:28:33.910

Her son had been killed
and I'd come back alive.

# · 01:28:33.91001:28:36.280

She was very bitter.

# · 01:28:36.28001:28:38.200

The first night I came home,
I got into my old bed,

# · 01:28:38.20001:28:41.370
