Peter wrote:"The pub characters, can I suppose be seen as pawns inthe chess game. Certainly the demobbed fellows are comingfrom a pawn-like situatiuon in the war. Not many connotationsof ivory among them that I can see, though, unless perhapsthat set of teeth that Lil should get."Peter this is another sharp observation of yours. Chess is a war game. Europe in either WWI or WW2 was described as a chessboard. Another resonance in the poem that operates on a subconscious level until someone like you points it out! Ivory may stand for the spoils of war. Diana
