It was true that I had been to blame for taking the soldier's shako, but after all, he had commenced.
He sprang up with a loud oath, and knocked my shako off my head.
If I had but a frock and a shako, thought I, I could make my way.
The young man let fall his shako from his hand, and laid it on his sword-hilt.
Two of these had the number of their regiment on their shako.
The young officer, his hand to his shako, ran up to his superior.
One of these, in its explosion, knocked off my shako and killed a man beside me.
"I congratulate you," said the captain, as I picked up my shako.
Seeing that he was not wanted further, he touched his shako and withdrew.
He took off his shako and ran his hand through his mop of red hair.
