CHAPTER XV

" What the devil do you mean by kicking up that din ?" said Taunton.
" Sorry," said Denis. " But you sent us out as patrols and we heard an extraordinary noise going on ; so I thought we ought to find out what it was."
" I never told you to come back. As a matter of fact we've made a sort of barbed wire entanglement before our trenches. Sheets of corrugated iron to be exact, and if it works as well as it did with you, we shan't be taken by surprise, anyhow."
" Good idea," said Worming.
" We've got sheets put all along the hill and so have Huntley's. I found them in a shed back there."
" Then you won't want us any more ? " said Denis.
" Yes, you'd better go out again for a bit, in case Sandymore comes along. I'll send someone out to relieve you."
When Major Sandymore paid a visit of inspection, he was surprised by the unusual silence. With his customary tact he ignored glowing pin points, which were quickly jammed in the ground.
" Patrols out, Taunton ? "
" Yes, sir, Bailey and Worming Major."
" Good, I shall be on the right of the company by a clump of trees in the rear, if you send a runner. And remember, no firing at close quarters."
" Right, Sir." Major Sandymore passed on and cigarettes were relit.
For some time Denis and Worming remained silent. A quarter of an hour had nearly passed. They heard a few shots on the far right, but no general engagement seemed to have resulted. They moved a little further down the hill and stared in front of them. Thev could hear no sounds on the lower slopes. And then three shots rang out behind them and a green rocket soared into the sky. A terrific fusillade broke out on the summit of the hill and, simultaneously, a line of flashes stabbed the darkness a long way down on the right. Shouts came from behind and a few dull reports sounded nearer.
