“Colonel De Lancey!”
De Lancey’s head shot up as he realised he hadn’t been paying attention to a word Lord Wellington was saying.
“Yes, my lord?”
“I asked you if the boots the men are so desperately in need of have arrived yet.” Wellington frowned. “Well?”
“I’m not certain, my lord.” De Lancey looked down and shuffled the papers in front of him, cringing inwardly as he imagined the disapproving glances he must be getting from the older staff officers. “I’ll have to go and check.”
His commander’s eyes narrowed. “Very well,” he said, “make sure you do.”
