As for the infantrymen, when they come out of the trenches, they are caked in mud all over.
He was turbanless, shoeless, caked with dirt, and all but dead with rough handling.
When it came to grooming the mud was caked thick on all hides.
The soiled dishes, caked with hardened grease, made him sick.
They are brought in here just caked with mud from head to foot.
