    Summary

    A group of ex-pupils of the United Services College have gathered at the stately home of one of them ("the Infant"), and are reminiscing both about their school days, and about their encounters with Stalky Corkran during their various services to the Empire in the Indian Subcontinent, as told in the final chapter of Stalky and Co.
