CHAPTER XV

" We'd better get back," said Denis, after waiting a few minutes. They started to stumble up the hill again, crashing over the corrugated iron sheets. They reached the place where Wren's had been. A few cigarette papers gleamed in the darkness. Of Wren's themselves, there was no sign.
Meanwhile, on the right, the battle was becoming fiercer. The slopes of the hill were studded with flashes, which seemed to be spreading in a wide semi-circle. Denis and Worming wandered about in the dark. A file of figures ran quickly past them. The night attack was a mystery. Denis offered Worming a cigarette and they sat down to await the return of their section. The firing died down and a few shouts were heard on the right. A bugle sounded.
" Is that the cease fire or the last post ? " said Worming. " I never know."
" Both, probably, by now," said Denis. The firing ceased. One shot rang out. Then silence.
" Hadn't we better try and discover what's happened ?" said Worming. The quiet of the hill was alarming. There was a lot of dew and the night was none too warm.
" Come on then," said Denis and they started off. " Although he tried to keep to the crest of the hill Denis had a nasty feeling that they were moving round the rim of a crater and getting steadily further from the rest. He felt a great relief, when he stumbled into a group of boys, seated on a knoll.
" Who the devil are you ?"
" Wren's," said Denis. "Where are the rest of m'tutor's ?"
There was a laugh. " Wren's. Your company let the whole bloodv show down."
" What happened? " said Worming.
" Ask your tutor's," said somebody. " You'll find them just over there."
Denis and Worming started off again and came on their own company just as it was about to fall in. No one spoke. Major Sandymore gave a command and the column moved off.
" What happened ? " whispered Denis.
