"After the forms had been _filled in_, my fingerprints were put on the
backs of the forms that had just been _filled  out_."

The same speaker, who, IMO, sounded Australian, also said,

"I hadn't the slightest _inclination_ of what was going on."

All say, "How hard it is that we have to die!"---a strange complaint
to come from the mouths of people who have had to live.
