CHAPTER V

the right to their places among the seventy members of College, who wore white surplices in chapel. The oppidan half of the ram forged onwards, followed by the choir. The captain of the oppidans came last in the ram. He wore a coloured waistcoat and a buttonhole, being an ex-officio member of Pop, the Eton society. The rest of sixth form wore stick-up collars and butterfly ties. The leader of the ram had only just got into sixth form and was nervous. He held his head high and fixed his eyes on the altar far up at the end of the aisle. He saw nothing at all clearly and unconsciously quickened his step. The school smiled as the gap widened between him and the rest of the ram, whose slow goose-step never faltered. When the leader turned off to the left, a good two yards separated him from the rest of oppidan sixth form. On Monday mornings, when the O.T.C. paraded, the ram consisted of two or three conscientious objectors or invalids, who stamped up the aisle in lonely splendour ; but normally it was most impressive and Americans came from London specially to see it.
College chapel choir, except for a few masters, was composed of professionals. There were professional men, who never seemed to grow older or to sing less loudly. There was Thunder Guts, whose bass solos in the anthems were so bass that it was hard to tell his higher from his lower notes. Even beaks smiled, when Thunder Guts was singing, though he sang very well. There were also professional boys in the choir, who were always changing as their voices cracked. They were usually fair-haired boys and they oiled and brushed back their hair like the school, seated round them. Sometimes they made friends among the school.
Before the frescoes were discovered on the walls of Eton chapel, there were high stalls of heavily carved wood, and in the stalls sat the masters, their friends, and old boys, and if there was any room, a few Americans. But there were few places to spare, and even old boys had to jingle half crowns before the verger in the ante-chapel to be sure of a seat.
Denis liked chapel. He had time to think and he could sing without anyone minding. Masters had been known to
