"Might be right, lets go in then? Well, wait for officers first ,so they find a seat, if we may go with them!" Pye smiled gazing curiously at the horseless carriage. An interesting thing, but will it move? Ah well, if it didn't they could all still march.

"Here, Cob! What're you doin' up there, and is there any more room?" Oxley called, seeing the sailor scrambling up to the roof of the strangest carriage he'd ever seen in his life. "Here, you sure this's safe - there ain't no horses anywheres."

"Don't think you's s'posed to do that," Oxley said, tilting his hat back on his head to watch Mister Evans scramble up on the roof. "There's nice chairs inside, y'know, too."

The two seamen glanced at each other and shrugged.

"Mebbe there is, but bein' up aloft's more fun than bein' belowdecks," Chase said.

Evans tugged his tarred hat down more firmly on his head. "Aye," he agreed with a teasing smirk. "You Marines and them others had better stay below."

Oxley shrugged and clambered up to the roof, trying to mind his footing and not kick anything on the way. "Here, it is nice an' big up here," he said, looking around.

"That is... interesting," Blackwood remarked, pausing just outside the uneven door to fit his hat on. He lifted an eyebrow at the three adventuresome men on the top of the carriage, not fully understanding the attraction to such a spot for passengers. Surely that was where the coachman sat?

"I am not entirely convinced that riding on the top of the coach is either the safest or most comfortable place to travel," Vickery said, looking up at the two sailors and the young lad in the red jacket and Marines' hat who had clambered up to join them.

"What's all this racket for?" Tom Mayden complained, appearing from the general direction of the kitchen, tugging on his still-damp coat. "Can't a lad get - the bleedin' hell's that?"

"We's goin' on a trip," Oxley called, waving at the other man in his damp and strangely-cut coat. "You can come up aloft with us, or sit inside. Goin' to see ol' Vic'try."

"Victory? Oh, I heared of her. She was one of the line at Ushant. What's she doin' in port?" Mayden frowned, then blanched when he took note of the officers. He saluted hastily and was embarrassed by the slightly dishevelled state of his uniform. "Beg pardon, sirs."

"Ushant?" What the heck was Ushant - apart from being where ships aimed for to head out to the Atlantic, anyhow. "She broke the line at Trafalgar, I know that. You should ask Brannin' 'bout that - he was there!" The admiration in Oxley's voice was clear.

Something like confusion flitted across Mayden's face. "The bleedin' hell's Trafalgar?" He demanded. "The scrap at Ushant happened in 'Seventy-nine. How d'you not know 'bout that?"

He shook his head, despairing of the lad who professed to be a Marine. "An'... who? I know a Brannin'... Sarn't Brannin' anyways."

What mad sort of place was this?

Oxley gaped. Who didn't know about Trafalgar, the most famous sea-battle ever in the whole history of the Navy?

"Was a big battle, us ag'in the Frogs, that we won, 'bout four year ago," he managed to say once he'd recovered his composure a bit. "Where've you bin?"

What? "There's been lots of battles 'tween us an' the Frogs," Mayden replied testily. "I been in the West Indies since 'vacuatin' Boston. We've been chasin' them Frogs all over down there, so devil take yer Trafalgar."

"Mind your tongue, Private," Mister Cartwright said curtly, appearing from inside the Crown. "That goes for both of you."

Fighting back a sigh, Blackwood took a step forward. This had gone on long enough. "That will do, indeed. You three may come down from there and board this vehicle properly. You, fellow, may go aboard quietly. Lively, now."

He glanced at the Marine officer and nodded slightly. "Are you to join us, sir?"

Oxley opened his mouth to say something, but was forestalled by Mister Cartwright's appearance, and looked away shame-facedly. And then some other officer he didn't know came out to tell them to get down. Bother.

And it had been going to be such a good day.
