the man who knew too much?
The story is about a man named private Quelch who likes to show off his knowledge. Narrator and his friends also gave him nickname 'professor ' due to his lanky body and bespectacled looks. Although private Quelch meant to acquire a stripe and to get commission. He works hard for his ambition but due to his habit of interrupting senior officers and showing off his knowledge he was nominated for permanent cookhouse duties by Corporal Turnbull. Corporal Turnbull was a young and smart soldier who had returned from Dunkirk. He was a man not to be trifled with. Narrator and his fellow soldiers told each other that they could hammer nails into him without him noticing it. There are also many incidents in the story, when private Quelch outshone his fellow soldiers (including narrator) on aircraft recognition, when professor interrupted the sergeant and he asking questions to professor in hope of revenge. The story ends with a light note with private Quelch lecturing his fellow soldiers on how to cut potato without its vitamin values being wasted.
