Inside the wallet is the picture of a pretty young woman. The sergeant is unmoved, commenting that the victim was an "[[NewMeat FNG-type,]] walking around the [[TheDreaded A Shau]] with a half-empty canteen" that made lot of noise.

* WhamShot: Lt. Eden is calling in an artillery strike when his position is hit by a mortar. Sgt. Worchester rushes to help and finds him leaning against a tree, dazed but seemingly unharmed and still trying to give orders over the radio. Worchester administers first aid, which annoys Eden because he's busy. "Sir! Your arm." The camera pans down and Eden (and the viewer) sees that his right arm has been ripped off above the elbow.
