"He usually heads out towards the picquet lines," Padstowe said, touching his heels to Bethany's sides and starting her in a walk. "But in which direction is anybody's guess!"

Indeed. Sanders nudged his horse forward, trying to think which part of the picquet line Sir Arthur had headed for. "I shouldn't like to be the poor souls on picquet if he was to have a notion be seen."

They'd probably tie themselves in knots. Asquith had to hide a grin at the thought.

Although, they might not, at that. Just because he was new out here didn't mean everyone else was! There were several regiments that had been out here since last year, after all.

"Who's on picquet now, sir?" he asked instead.

The picquets for the week were... "The Thirty-third," Sanders replied.

Asquith didn't know them, which didn't mean a whole lot - he didn't know most things, yet. He merely nodded and filed the information away so that he would have some chance of matching the regiment's designation with its appearance when he did see them.

"So, ah, what's the plan for looking for the General, then?" he asked, wishing he felt more certain of things.

Padstowe wondered whether any particular plan would ever stick to Lord Wellington, but there was no use in voicing that thought.

"Bullen gave us the road to Escalos de Baixo," he said, his voice rising in volume a little as he took up a trot, clearing the courtyard and turning towards the north-east. "I came that direction this morning, though that was some time ago. Early riser the Beau may be, but he's unlikely to have slipped past me in the dark."

That might be so but it could not hurt to be sure. Sanders touched his heels back, spurring his mount after Padstowe's. "He can be deuced slippery when he's of mind, it must be said."

Then again, Padstowe was not the sort to miss it should a fellow on horseback be anywhere nearby.

Asquith had no idea and nothing to suggest, so kept his mouth shut and concentrated on sticking with the group of senior officers until and unless told otherwise.
