CHAPTER XIV

half-hearted effort to land a kiss ; but Nellie's muscular arms kept him off with some ease.
" Good night, gentlemen," she repeated. " Be good."
" Come to camp," said Featherstone.
" Now then, you've had more than enough, hasn't he, gentlemen ? " The appeal was successful. " Come on Feathers," said Oliver. He took his arm and together they staggered outside, followed by Denis and Peter. On the other side of the road a knot of boys were waiting. As the Etonians started off in the direction of camp, they came towards them.
" Bloody Eton," said the first.
" Poor little chap's tight," said another. " Eton can't hold its drink." The third member of the group barged into Oliver and Featherstone and sent them swaying into the ditch. Featherstone picked himself up and rushed at the khaki figures and a general engagement began. Someone slashed Denis across the cheek with a swagger cane.
" Bloody cads," he shouted and hit out with both fists. Featherstone had been knocked down again and collapsed whenever he tried to rise. Peter was being beaten back with blows from a cane and Oliver was wrestling closely with the third Magnafieldian. Each side meant murder. They were out for blood and blood would have been shed if a giant lorry, driven by a drunk soldier, had not thundered round the corner and scattered the fight with fine impartiality. More boys were coming up the road and the heat of the battle had passed.
" We'll see you again," Oliver shouted after them.
" Good night, baby Eton," came the reply. " Shall we hold his little head for him, if he wants to be sick ?"
But Featherstone heard nothing. He sat on the side of the ditch with his chin in his hands.
" Come on, Feathers," said Oliver. " There are chaps coming. Give me a hand. You're not hurt are you, Peter."
" No, I'm all right. My eye's a bit painful. Got a cut above it, I think."
" Dirty cads to use sticks," said Denis.
