Hi Littlehand.
Major Black led the party searching for the colours but they were actually found by Harford , after Black had
decided to send Harford , Lt Harber and Lt Wainwright down to the bed of the river to carry out the search . Harford
when they get to the river tells Harber to go downstream close to the river's edge , and Wainwright to follow the curve
of the delta , while he ( Harford ) moved through the centre . As he Harford says we were only a few yards apart .
This from Harford's own words ; '' Scarcely had we taken a few steps than I stumbled on the colour case mixed up
with a heap of other things , picking it up I said to Harber , who was closest to me , '' Look here , here's the case
The Colours cant be far off , We all 3 had a look at it , put it on a conspicous boulder , and went on . Then , as Harber was returning to his position , I noticed a straight piece of stick projecting out of the water in the middle of the river , almost in line with us , and said to him , '' Do you see that straight bit of stick sticking up in the water opposite to
you ? It looks to me uncommonly like a colour pole '' He waded straight in , up to his middle , and got hold of it . On lifting it out he brought up the colour still adhering to it , and on getting out of the water handed the standard to me ,
and as he did so the gold - embroidered centre scroll dropped out , the silk having more or less rotted from the long
immersion in the water . Our cheers very soon brought Maj Black tearing down the Krantz as fast as precipitous rocks
boulders and thorn bush would allow him .
cheers 90th .
