Lagniappe: Nobby and the Winning Side

"We-ell, no point in going to war unless you're on the winning side," said Nobby, sticking the white feather in his helmet.

"Nobby, you was always on the winning side, the reason bein', you used to lurk aroun' the edges to see who was winning and then pull the right uniform off'f some poor dead sod. I used to hear where the generals keps an eye on what you were wearin' so they'd know how the battle was going."
Terry Pratchett, Jingo
