CHAPTER XV

uncertain whether to launch a counter attack on the Magnafields' lines. But the rain fell in a steady sheet and decided the question for them. As they returned to their tents, a number of forms stole towards them.
" Who are you? " Taunton challenged them.
" Whiteley's. Just been for a stroll in the Magnafields' lines."
" They've just slashed our tents, damn them."
" All square then. We let down the ropes of half a dozen of theirs. You should have heard the language which came from inside. They won't have too good a night."
" Good work," said Taunton. But as far as his own tent was concerned the victory lay with Magnafields. Three palliasses, including his own, were drenched through, and the rain splashed on the tent boards and sprayed everyone in the tent. For the rest of the night eight boys huddled into the dry half and slept against each other. Towards four in the morning the rain stopped.
The night attack came without further scrapping between Eton and Magnafields. No official notice had been taken of the tent slashing business, but the authorities were fully aware of the rivalry between the two schools, and when the arrangements for night manceuvres were issued, it was found that there was very little chance of Eton coming to grips with Magnafields. The former were to d4end the left flank of a wide hill, while the latter formed the extreme left wing of the attacking force.
A little after eleven the defenders, wearing white bands on their caps, took up their position on the forward slope of the hill. Each boy carried twenty rounds of blank and the N.C.O.s were provided with a small supply of flares and rockets. Freeman was acting as aide-de-camp to the C.O., and Taunton was in command of the platoon.
" Sort yourselves out and look as if you expected to be attacked. Bailey, you and Worming had better come out fifty yards in front as patrols."
" Right," said Denis.
