From the text, the things the men did not learn in school.

"At school nobody ever taught us how to light a cigarette in a storm of rain, nor how a fire could be made with wet wood--nor that it is best to stick a bayonet in the belly because there it doesn't get jammed, as it does in the ribs."

Things they learned.....

"...the three-fold theme in "William Tell'.

"...the purpose of the Poetic League of Gattingen..."
