CHAPTER V

walk down the gangway and tap a boy on the shoulder. But Denis seldom bawled. He sang out of tune, but quietly. During the sermon he wrote his diary with a fountain pen. In Lower Chapel he and another boy had once brought in a skin filled with lemonade and a length of rubber tubing. The skin had been hidden in his overcoat and the tubing fastened to the mouth and passed down the pew during the litany. The skin was dry long before the litany was half finished. Another time he had been playing tennis on Sunday afternoon with some friends near Slough and had not had time to get back to Wren's before chapel. He shoved the handle of his racket down one trouser leg and buttoned his waistcoat over the head. Kneeling down proved too painful, and so two boys covered him while he took out the racket and laid it under the pew. Afterwards he buttoned it up again without being caught.
There were a good many jokes, which turned up regularly in chapel. Denis realised they were due for one of them when the second hymn was read out. No. 260. " Hark my soul, it is the Lord." When they reached the second verse he looked at Robin. But Robin held his hymn-book before him and sang steadily as if the headmaster's eye was upon him.

After the service he looked for Robin. The ante chapel was full of boys diving and reaching for their hats. Toppers were piled on high shelves or strewn about on the stone floor one on the other. The ante chapel was like the hall of a London house at the end of a dance in summer. Denis kicked a hat or two out of his way and came upon the initials D. A. B. in gilt letters. He grabbed his hat and
