The eight Senior Middles in the compartment sat up when Mary-Lou Trelawney flung this bombshell among them as the train that was bearing them to Interlaken thundered along on the shores of Lake Thun. What did they think of the new uniforms? Most of them had grumbled furiously when the letter came from the school, informing their mothers that the old brown and flame was to be left behind for the use of the English branch and they would make their debut in Switzerland in something as different as it could be. They looked self-consciously at each other and then Hilary Bennett spoke.

"I'm bound to say I simply raged when I first heard. Well, I expect I wasn't the only one!" She looked accusingly round at her friends and they all nodded, Mary-Lou with a deep chuckle. Hilary continued. "We've always worn brown and flame. People know us by that. All the same, I do see the point of changing now. And you know, looking at you all, I must say I rather like it on the whole. It's such a gorgeous deep, vivid blue."
