Lt. Melvill: Well done, Sir! Did you see that Noggs? Deceived him with the up and took him with the down. Norris-Newman: Well well, this one's a grandfather at least. If he'd been a Zulu in his prime I'd have given odds against your lancer, Mr.Melvill.

Interesting story. Does anyone know who this fellow, 'Little Binks', is?

I have been looking for hours. Found nothing. I also look for a Major Trivitt, Nothing on this chap connected with the Zulu War.

littlehand,

I also have spent hours trying to figure out who this gentlemen might be. I can't find Major Trevitt, or the Thirteenth Dragoons, in the medal rolls or anywhere else.

John,

I think you might be right about the story being fiction. The more I read it the less it reads like something written by a correspondant. The language is too flowery.

I followed the link at the bottom of the article to see it on the actual newspaper page. The other articles on that page were either fiction or reviews.

Might have been nice if it was identified as a piece of fiction.

Sorry for all the sleepless nights and bleary eyes everyone.!

Tom
