Good post. I haven't seen these photo's,but I would not doubt it for a second.

that was exactly what i was thinking .. vey much like custer indeed.
although this chap probably told alot of tall stories e.g. having to eat a child when starving and the fact that no record of his service existed before 1872 in new zealand
