This entry represents the various unnamed white soldiers whom Caspey mentions in Flags in the Dust in his highly fictionalized account of his experiences in France during World War I. Many of them are "M.P"s, but he also refers to "white officers" and the "white boys" with whom he shares a trench about four miles behind the front lines (60).
