CHAPTER III - THE BODY ON THE SANDS

Here they spotted a motor-car waiting. Its lights were off, and the two officers had not observed it before because it had been hidden beneath the cliff. In a few moments the strange man entered the car, which was ready with its engine running silently ; and before they could do anything, he had been whisked out of sight.
" Well that's the limit," gasped the Colonel. " A fine pair of chaps we are, to let a spy slip through our fingers like that."
" Why did your sentries let him through ?" countered the Naval man.
" Ah ! I never thought of that. We'll go at once and see," cried the Colonel. " I wonder where he got that key ? "
They soon came up with the sentry and began to bombard the frightened man with questions. When at last he got a chance of replying, the poor fellow could only say he had his orders to let the man go through.
" Whose orders ?" bellowed the Colonel.
" Your own, sir." It was the corporal of the guard who answered. He had come up in time to hear the question.
" Mine ? " gasped the Colonel.
" Yes, sir," replied the man. " Here is the permit."
The Colonel looked at the printed chit which the N.C.O. handed him. It was quite in order, and signed
6y his own hand !
" But I never signed this . ", he began.
" I say, Kenton, let's go back. There is something here which evidently needs explaining-but to-morrow will do." The Commander did not want the Colonel to give anything away before the very surprised corporal and sentry. " You can ring up the police from the house."
Seeing the need for discretion, the Colonel consented.
