Simon stares at the head, which he calls "the Lord of the Flies" as it tells him (he's hallucinating, by the way) that it is the beast and that it is part of him (Simon). Simon passes out, gets a bloody nose, and wakes up covered in sweat, blood, and other generally disgusting things. Despite all this, he decides to continue up the mountain to face the beast, i.e. dead guy. Then he vomits and staggers down the mountain.
In William Golding’s 1954 published Lord of the Flies, the boy’s on the island learn that a peaceful civilization is easily destroyed without cooperation or agreement.
Isolation is portrayed through the novels, Lord of the Flies by William Golding, One Flew over the Cuckoo’s Nest by Ken Kesey, and Brave New World by Aldous Huxley through the inclusion of certain characters.
Lord Louis wrote his own funeral programme/operations order which I myself read every word of.
I also saw and read the Army Operations Order, the document actually used for the
funeral, which in effect put 'meat on the bones' of Lord Louis's orders. At no point did Lord Louis
state in writing that medals were not to be issued, nor was this mentioned in the Army order.
We see this portrayed in the William Golding's infamous novel, Lord of the Flies, when the horrendous crash of an airplane penetrates the island's serenity and disrupts the air with the crackling sounds of the blazing fire.
With my success as a businessman came a measure of wealth andprosperity, if only at the end when the business was sold as a managementbuy-out. Now I have the time, and want, to reflect upon my life, or at leastupon my first two careers. Although I retired in late 2002/early 2003, I havebeen preparing my mind for the 25th anniversary of the murder and funeral ofLord Mountbatten, hoping to use the event as a rekindling of my affection forthe navy. Lord Mountbattens funeral was, for the nation a sad butmagnificent occasion, made the grander by the splendid way in which the RoyalNavy performed its duties, but for us who were closely involved, it created aphotograph album in our hearts which is ever opened and which NEVERcloses.

temptation to write my thoughts about the break in UK tradition for Ceremonial,
State and Royal Funerals. I have, long ago,
researched London ceremonial and state funerals, and without exception,
the coffin bearers at every funeral since that
of Queen Victoria in 1901 have been awarded some kind of medal in
recognition of their very special duties.
Usually, the award has been either a medal from the
Order of the British Empire
or from the Victorian Order, manifest in that the bearers themselves
get the BEM or the RVM, whereas,
the commissioned officer and the warrant officer get the MBE or the MVO,
the latter usually being at 5th class.
