Description: 

In the story "France" is referred to twice as the place where Jenny's great-great-nephew (and Narcissa's brother-in-law) Johnny Sartoris was "killed" (728, 735). In 1933, when the story first appeared, most readers would assume "killed in France" meant killed during the Great War (as the First World War was still called). Readers of Flags in the Dust would know that he was shot out of the sky while serving in the British Air Force.
