This, in conjunction with the preference for like-aged partners, may be mechanisms to achieve and maintain compromises between the play partners' different interests in social play which e.
Males played significantly more often than females and played more chasing games. Male-male play was over-represented whereas female-female play was underrepresented. These facts potentially foreshadow sex differences in wild maturing chimpanzees, where males engage in more agonistic conflicts and tend to build coalitions. Unable to display preview.

We came as fast as we could. I shall not forget the night drive we did to reach them, up that blessed corridor which was hardly a pencil's width. It wasn't dangerous but terribly tiring. Right up to the end the Boche always manages to get something to the critical point at the critical moment.
He's a fine soldier still, and a dangerous person to gamble with. I know from experience, they do as much for our wounded as for their own. He came back too soon after being wounded, is thin as a rake and worn out. So his sergeant has taken over and he has been ordered 12 hours a night and breakfast in bed. The medical officer is giving him knock-out drops to put him under for 20 hours or so tonight. This is a splendid way they deal with shock or exhaustion, putting the victim to sleep for 24 hours.
I always felt it likely and am not much surprised.
We were in an area of smallholdings. I was detailed to go to Brussels for 48 hours, but couldn't face it and begged the CO to let me stay. He said that if I preferred to spend 48 hours in bed later on, he would permit it. In mid-October, we were suddenly ordered to become operational again and take over a bridge. This was in the middle of training, football, baths and cinemas and with 40 men and two officers weekending in Brussels. Place left filthy and a shambles. We cleaned up, breakfasted, laid telephone lines and were then ordered to 'up sticks' and move to another outfit 30 miles away.
Pitch dark, pouring rain, we wallowed in mud till next morning. But within a week the scene had changed again. Full of children and old people and nothing in between them at all. Where people of our age are, goodness knows. You ask and they shrug their shoulders. I suppose most of them have been pinched for labour service in Germany.

The children look pale and ill-fed, though there is plenty of food in country districts like this. The trouble is more transport than supplies. The stuff abounds but there is no one to take it around. All railways smashed, no lorries, no petrol. After a pause in battle, some people become far more nervous than they were when it started.
I found the restoration of peacetime conditions trying, especially when everything had to be worked from a small tent in which six officers slept and ate. Comfortably established in the village hall, the battalion could turn out paper at an enormous rate. I got a rocket because they didn't like the way we typed the training programme.
The Dutch, I reported, were good value when you got to know them. The local soldiers, home guard and spies kept our hands full by behaving like a John Buchan novel.

Holiday camps in Brussels and Antwerp were in full swing, the men going off with glee for 48 hours and coming back looking like death and penniless, but declaring it was well worth it. Reaction plays the devil. I think a general picture from someone high up might help. Monty told me after the war that he had wanted to bash on because we were tired and needed to finish soon.
But Americans were pouring in and Eisenhower thought it best to wait until the spring. The ladies of the dance were pleasant but not striking. They all have an agreement not to wear lipstick or powder, because there is so little. Rather, there is none. A chap brought some cosmetics in Brussels. His girl refused to wear them.

It is however a collection of first person accounts and memories about those actions in which Canadian, British, Polish and Belgian troops suffered terrible conditions and constant draining losses, against German troops of quality ranging from poor to elite and I mean here Wehrmacht as well as Waffen SS , but always in defensive positions that required courage, guile, luck and firepower by the allies to overcome them.
To anyone who has read Ken Tout before, or say Patrick Delaforce and a number of recently published or republished memoirs, many of the troops names will be familiar, but there are other contributors whose stories add well to the overall book, including many Canadian personnel and the always hard pressed civilians. The books uses these people's accounts to chart the progress of the Allied army from the shadow of the operations at Arnhem in September to the German frontier that winter.
For the Walcheren operation this is widened to include men who flew planes on bombing raids or those who piloted landing craft or other vessels. It does too reinforce further the Dutch peoples own dreadful experiences under occupation and during liberation, and also shows how magnificent a people they are by their fine treatment of men who had just smashed their homes, villages and sometime families to pieces.
If you have not read anything of these now near forgotten battles with the, in my view, under appreciated Canadian, Polish and British units, who fought and died in conditions that often mirrored the wettest and most miserable stretches of their fathers' experiences on the Western Front some 20 years before, then it is a good starting point.
