CHAPTER XV

" Bloody Magnafieldians," said Peter. " They came up round the rear and took the whole lot of us prisoners."
" Good God."
" And then attacked the next company while the rest of them loosed off in front. The umpire said we were outflanked and enfiladed and a few other things, and ordered the cease fire."
" Damned unfair."
" So Bullock said, it appears. But the umpire wouldn't have it."
" Didn't you hear them coming? " said Denis.
" Of course not. We were banking on the corrugated iron. A little beggar poked his gun into my stomach and said, 'Hands up or I fire.' I told him to take my rifle and carry it for the rest of camp if he liked."
" How about Feathers ? Did he get his own back ?"
" He told me he scuppered a few Magnafieldians, but he's been limping badly ever since. They did us in nicely."
" Damned funny, I must say," said Denis.
" Oh, priceless," said Peter. It was the first time Denis had known him really angry.
At dinner the next day Robin appeared with a second stripe.
" Congratters," said Denis, " so you're staying on then." " Thanks. Yes for another year. I'm glad."
" So am I, though you won't be able to smoke for another
year? " Robin laughed.
" Or when you come and stay I suppose? "
" No," said Robin. " When is it, by the way?"
" The twenty-fifth, and stay as long as you like after the dance. There's not much to do except sailing, as you know. And tennis with Joan."
The last night of camp was full of alarms and rumours. There was an old tradition that the lats should be destroyed if possible by fire, as a mark of gratitude, for the acutely uncomfortable moments spent there. A little before lights out a report spread that the tradition was being carried out. But the guard turned out and drove off the incendiaries
