    in the front row but one

    Dear teachers,

    Would you tell me whether I am right about my interpretation of the expression in bold in the following sentences?

    When the laughter subsided, a lean, rather clever-looking boy rose up in the front row but one and said, impudently: "Please sir, I'm Worsley. I didn't do anything."
    Speed replied promptly: "Oh, didn't you? Well, you've got a hundred lines, anyway."

    in the front row but one = in the second row

    Thanks for your efforts.

    Regards,

    V
