PostSubject: The news of the disaster.    The news of the disaster.  EmptyTue Aug 24, 2010 10:34 pm

Doe's anyone know the names of the two messengers. They must have been travelling for two day's

"The news of the disaster spread fast. Sir Bartle Frere, on the morning of the 24th, was awakened by the arrival of two almost distraught and wholly unintelligible messengers. Their report, when it could be at last comprehended, seemed too horrible for belief. That they had escaped some terrible ordeal was evident ; that they were members of the company of naval volunteers that formed part of the General's army, their uniform proclaimed. But of the General they could say nothing — he might be dead, he might be missing all they knew was of their own miraculous escape from a scene of slaughter. Colonel Pulleine they declared was dead, but further news had to be awaited with anxious hearts."
