Summary[edit]

From the author: "When Simeon's arm was blown off by a shell blast, the magisters patched him up and gave him a spirited tin arm, which works like flesh and blood, but needs a bit more... instruction. In the convalescent hospital Simeon runs into an old friend, who helps him recognise the benefits of his spirited appendage."

'"Please try to stay still, Private Klein," said the magister as his assistant held the tin appendage to the stump of Simeon's left arm.

Simeon forced himself not to shift and look down as the metal warmed against his skin. Instead, he looked up at the ceiling of the No 1 Procedure Room of Queen Mary's Hospital, Roehampton, and considered the weight of the tin fingers resting on his belly.'
