Hi littlehand

He certainly was Idea

A correspondent with General Wood’s column writes:- Arthur Dobson, poor fellow, was killed on the very top of Zlobane. He happened to be right behind every body else, and one of the Frontier Light Horse rode up to him and said “for God’s sake Dobson come on, the Zulus are almost on top of you.” He looking behind, and in the coolest way possible said “that’s nothing, you go on, and I will take care of myself.” He had a splendid horse, but never attempted to hurry it on. Dobson was a plucky fellow, and a most willing workman; he always did his work willingly. He turned out to be one of the best men in his corps, and shook down to his work wonderfully. He was very much liked in the regiment.
