CHAPTER XIV

" Y company will advance in column of route from the right. Form fours. Right turn. Quick march." Denis shot out his feet and fixed his eyes on the back of Featherstone's neck. They tramped through the yard gates, and out of the corner of his eye he saw his tutor. Wren was standing in the drive. He looked very cool and holiday-like in a grey flannel suit, and his gaze wandered up and down the column for his section. Freeman, marching alongside, caught sight of him and gave his tutor a last salute. Wren gravely raised a forefinger and held it to his head till his section had passed. A white handkerchief fluttered from an upper window.
" Good-bye, ma'am," said someone from the ranks.
" Stop talking there," said Taunton. " Spencer-Mace, you're out ofstep. Lep. Ri. Lep. Ri."
Mr. Philbert was at the door of Denman & Goddard's as they passed. He gave them a benign smile. Several faces grinned as the baker's shop went by. The coy face of Winnie rose above a collection of cottage loaves. For the next seven weeks she would have to be content with butchers and bakers. As they crossed Windsor Bridge, whose structure was none too sound, the command was given to break step. Keeping a rather better step than before, Mr. Wren's section shuffled over the bridge. Townees stood on the pavement smoking cigarettes and passing remarks to each other. Red and green buses panted and steamed on the far side.
They turned out of the High Street and faced a large crowd that had gathered at the station. The faces of the crowd were dull and stolid. " Look at that tofl'," said a townee. "'E don't 'arf fancy 'imself in that 'at."
" Thinks 'e's doing the blooming goose-step."
" Pardon me, mister, but could you tell me the time ?" Freeman stalked on majestic.
" You ain't got a cigarette card on yer?" said the first townee, falling into step alongside Taunton.
" Give us a fag, mister ?"
" Please, sir, could yer tell me 'oose army this might be?"
" Get out, you little swine," said Taunton.
