The trucks had to be exactly the same according to the honour code all boys up to about sixteen live by at the village. Getting a bigger truck for yourself or two trucks for yourself would be a breach of that honour code and would bring shame on one's head. The code is super important to the boys in the village from an early age. Actually, I have to do a separate post no it, it is a big and interesting part of life here and understanding it is key to interacting with and managing the local teenage boys.
Helga gave the kid a go ahead for two more trucks and he was super happy to walk away with four identical trucks for the whole gang in full compliance with the honour code.
One thing that he finds particularly difficult to adjust to in London is that he cannot go outside alone when he wants as he does in the village (kids run free here). So it puzzles him why can't he just go out of our house and run around London alone for a bit when he wants to.
