CHAPTER XIV

The canteen was open, but after a glance along the counter, Peter took Denis by the arm. " Why can't they get a man like Tom to run the canteen ? Nothing to drink but bright yellow muck they call lemonade, and you can't even smoke. Let's have a fag up on the hill ?"
" We mustn't miss last post," said Denis. " I wonder if Taunton will put lights out punctually. He reads by candle at m'tutor's."
" There will be some dirty work to-night, you see," said Peter. " We've got Lawrence and Worming Major in our tent."
" What do you mean ? Anyhow, Taunton's too much of a prig," Denis added.
" When he's with Freeman and Manley. But Freeman has got a separate tent with the officers, and Manley is with Owen Jones's lot. Besides, Featherstone will back him up, you see."
" Well, I don't care," said Denis. Peter glanced at him. " Worming Major and Lawrence have never been to camp before."
" Lawrence is pi," said Denis.
" So I've heard," said Peter.
As they climbed higher on the hill, wisps of smoke curled upwards from gorse bushes. On the topmost ridges boys sat in pairs and openly smoked pipes or cigarettes. Denis and Peter lit a couple of Abdullas and looked down on the camp. A thousand white pencil points lay below them and small dots crawled across the grey green spaces.
" I'm going to enjoy this camp," said Denis.
" It's a bloody sweat, but we'll make the best of it."
" I'm damned glad Taunton is leaving."
" He told me yesterday he was going to have the hell of a time in camp. He's left Eton, to all intents and purposes."
" Yes, but the head usher could stop his leaving book." The leaving book, a copy of Grey's poems, was the official mark of having left Eton. It was not given to boys who were expelled, nor were they entitled to wear the O.E. tie.
" All the same, you look out in the tent to-night," said
