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.

I’m glad you like them. It’s the in-depth research that makes these books stand out from the rest. Its one thing reading a name in the history books, but its another thing when is comes to telling the story behind the name.

hi pete.
Well said, i can imagine Kris would have spent WEEKS looking at census documents and other archival records, for maybe only 1
of these men, let alone how long it would have taken her to research the 50 or 60 odd soldiers, that have been researched at this time.
I dont know if she gets the recognition she most certainly deserves, but, lets hope so, do women recieve knighthood's ?. Here is a prime candidate from my way of thinking !!.
cheers 90th.
