Squelch is a nasty and unspecified foot disease plaguing those who, like cabbage farmers, spend a lot of time up to their ankles in mud and wet earth in all weathers. Apparently the Upunder boot is a good remedy. Even if it does stink when wet. A malady called Squelch foot also afflicted railwaymen driving the piles and hurdles to support the Fierté de Quirm line through the Netherglades swamps.
