" But what about poor old Beckford and Raugh Major ?"

Eight straggling palliasses were at length fitted in to a small circular space, the feet pointed inwards to the centre. Denis's toes rested firmly against Worming Major's shoulder. A wisp of straw from Peter's palliasse tickled his ear, whenever he shifted his head. Corps clothes lay in neat bundles beside them. Rifles leaned perilously against the tent pole and a candle burnt steadily in the close air. It was a funny feeling, this proximity of seven other bodies after his narrow iron bedstead at Wren's.
