G. Wodehouse, first published on October 9, 1907. It is set at Wrykyn school, scene of Wodehouses earlier book The Gold Bat (1904), and the later Mike (1909). Like many early Wodehouse novels, the story first appeared as a serial in the boys magazine The Captain, between October 1905 and March 1906. The phrase white feather is a reference to cowardice, and the title trades on the success of The Four Feathers a few years previously.A white feather has been a traditional symbol of cowardice, used and recognized especially within the British Army and in countries associated with the British Empire since the 18th century. It also carries opposite meanings, however: in some cases of pacifism, and in the United States, of extraordinary bravery and excellence in combat marksmanship.
