    R.L. Stevenson, "Treasure Island"
    http://www.roman-hartmann.de/Schatzinsel/html...

    And just then the same whistle that had alarmed my mother and myself [...] was once more clearly audible through the night, but this time twice repeated.[...] I now found that it was a signal from the hillside [...], a signal to warn [the buccaneers] of approaching danger.

    "There's Dirk again," said one. "Twice! We'll have to budge, mates."

    "Budge, you skulk!" cried Pew. "Dirk was a fool and a coward from the first--[...]"

    Comment
    Nebenform von "skulker" (vgl. dort)

    Auch im "Treasure Island"-Kontext passt "Drückeberger" perfekt. Dirk, der entfernt Schmiere stehende Pirat mit der Trillerpfeife, gibt 2x Signal: sie sollen sich zurückziehen.
    Und Pew schimpft seinen anderen Kumpan aus, ein Drückeberger zu sein, weil der wie ein Hasenfuß wegen einer seiner Ansicht minder gefährlichen Situation gleich Reißaus nehmen will.
