Following Page's murder Markham sends out a raid party on foot to capture Hakim, leading another group to rendezvous with them, along with photo-journalist Martha Franklin. The foot patrol is ambushed and completely wiped out and their mission is a failure, Sergeant Baxter, son of an ailing Great War hero, being particularly affected at seeing a comrade's decapitated head. At the base Alison befriends Honor, taking her to the BP Club where they meet the charismatic Harvey Tilbrook, and incurring Martin's disapproval whilst, after a distressing day, Markham returns to find that his wife has successfully given birth to a son.
