** The young woman who was crying when the others called "Beti" over to try to cheer her up. Even if the war ended before her fiance could get hurt or killed, she's still learned what a callous jerk he is, to run off and abandon her at the altar just so he could puff up his own ego playing soldier.

*** [[spoiler: Also true for Reg Shoe, whose name was ''not'' listed by the Dis-organizer, presumably because the Klatchian troops that attacked the alternate-timeline Watch hadn't come equipped to put down a zombie. He's already risen from the grave once to find his comrades have been slaughtered; how much worse for him to be there ''watching it happen'' this time, and be powerless to stop it? Did alt-Reg wind up burying himself for solidarity's sake on ''that'' anniversary too?]]

* "I tell you this, girls: I wish I'd settled for the ten-dollar version. Don't you just sometimes wanna sit down and cry?" Nobby taking to being a woman (leading to more crossdressing in later books) is funny, but behind the laughs it's hard not to feel sorry for him: The ugly, temperamental and female "Beti" might get degradatory comments about her looks, but overall she's still treated better by men and women alike than plain old Nobby Nobbs.

* The deaths of Privates Hobbeley and Webb, killed by [[spoiler:71-Hour Ahmed]] after he and Vimes were mistakenly attacked by Ankh-Morpork soldiers. The others don't seem to blame [[spoiler:Ahmed]] - who was, after all, just defending himself - but as Vimes said, "But...one moment they're alive-"
