Anna’s father is the owner of the estaminet (pub) near the soldiers’ camp. When Tommo can’t find Anna, he goes to her house, where her father somberly explains that she has been killed while gathering eggs. Anna’s father is normally a well-presented and jolly man, but when Tommo meets him after Anna’s death, he smells of alcohol and looks completely unkempt in his grief. He then shouts at Tommo, telling him to go to hell and to take the war with him. He is not normally an angry man, but the war and his daughter’s resulting death have left him distraught.
