Young officer's imaginings of great glory in martial endeavours meets the bloody carnage of reality.
The Scottish Word:

Trollie-bags.

“He’ll be awricht in a minute, it’s the first time he’s seen trollie-bags stewn aboot willy nilly – or aataw for that matter.”

Translated:

trollie-bags: intestines or entrails.

“He will be fine in a minute, it is the first time he’s seen entrails strewn about so carelessly – or at all for that matter.”

[trollie-bags spelled out in the phonetic alphabet.]
