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.

Andy,

His ‘wing’ of the Musketry Course, but there’s no-one else from our field of interest in it that I can discern. Whoever it owned originally penned numbers on to some of the group and then added a key. So Allfrey is number ‘8’ in the group.
