CHAPTER XIV

turkish delight, toffee, and thirst quenchers were handed round, and the train crept on through the valley of the Thames and turned away into Surrey and the sandy heaths of north Hampshire. The carriage began to warm up and the floor was littered with silver paper. Denis fell asleep over The Mystery of Room 17- Spencer-Mace had put away his meerschaum and was a little white about the gills.
For the twentieth time the train halted. The line lay level with a clump of silver birches. There was no sign of life. Denis woke up and looked out of the window. The silver rails danced in the sun and vanished round a low cutting. He could see no signal, but the engine driver seemed satisfied. He rested his arm on the side of his cab and puffed away at his pipe.
" Do you mind if I get down a moment," said Oliver. " It seems a good opportunity."
" Hurry up, then," said Owen Jones, " and if anyone stops you, say it's their fault for not providing a corridor train."
Oliver opened the door and jumped down on the gravel. He climbed the wire fence and ambled away into the trees. A line of heads appeared from the train.
" Buck up, or you'll miss the train." " We're off." " Do one for me, will you ? " " Same here." Oliver turned and grinned pleasantly at them ; then disappeared behind a tree trunk. The engine driver put away his pipe and pulled back a long steel lever. The engine puffed and the train steamed quietly out of the wood. A gesticulating figure dashed from the trees and waved at the last coach. At Tidw,orth station, Private Harbord was reported missing.
" There's our playground for the next ten days," said Peter on the way up from the station.
" Alpine stocks and ropes will be carried," said Warburton.
" The Park is better than the Pennings anyhow," said Denis. " In the Pennings you can't stand up straight."
The column turned off the tarmac and passed into a large field, dotted with white tents. A few figures in khaki
