Lieutenant John Chard: What's our strength? Lieutenant Gonville Bromhead: Seven officers including surgeon, commissaries and so on; Adendorff now I suppose; wounded and sick 36, fit for duty 97 and about 40 native levies. Not much of an army for you.

Dont forget to visit the Brecon Chapel of the 24th. Strangly a lot of people do the museum and ignore the Church. The original colors are still there hanging on the wall. Its a must see. The place is alive with memorable items.
