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

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
