CHAPTER XVI

" Shut up. I got three in yesterday. Stunners."
" 'The net must have been low," said Denis.
" We were both at the Park, too," Dick Lett was saying to Peter. " Were you in the night attack ?"
" Silly sort of affair, wasn't it ?" said Peter.
" We had a priceless time. Pat and myself were in a flanking operation, which caught most of Eton asleep and took them prisoners, didn't we, Pat ? I forgot you were at Eton, Denis. We did you in nicely."
" You cheated," said Denis. Peter smiled.
" Are you at Magnafields ?" he said.
" Yes. Are you at Eton too ? " said Dick.
" Yes, I am."
There was a silence. Denis saw the khaki figures at the bar of the Skittles Hotel, their caps pushed back on damp, curly locks. He had utterly forgotten that he knew anyone at Magnafields and he would certainly have denied it at the time.
" We let your tents down on the last night of camp, Dick," he said. There was a shout from the ground and the umpire held up his hand.
Just before tea, Ralph Hindley, the last man for Amplehurst, joined Peter at the wicket, and a few minutes later Peter swept a promising off wide into the hands of mid wicket.
" Ralph has carried his bat again," said Lady Hindley, all smiles. " It's the fourth time running."
" It's wonderful how well he plays, considering his eyes," said a neighbour. Ralph not out, o ; and Peter, 7, returned to the pavilion. " Well done, Ralph," Lady Hindley clapped her hands in front of her. " Hard luck, Lord Ockley ; it was very unfair being caught by that Somers boy. He's two years older than anyone here." Peter laughed and threw off his pads and the two teams went in to tea.
Against the end of Amplehurst a large wooden room had been built. The teams and the umpires sat down at separate tables on long benches. Pyramids of cake slabs and mountains of bread and butter lay alternately down the table.
