Hi Impi
Hamiltin-Browne watched the destruction of the camp from a distence and sent 3 riders back to Chelsmford. When the General turned up he said " What are you doing here commadnat Browne you where surposed to be in the camp hours ago?"
Browne replied " The camp has been taken Sir"
Chelsmford replied " How dare you tell me such falsehood get your men in line and advance!"
Browne obeyed and his men had gone a little way when Rupert Lonsdale apeared and confimed the camp was taken.

This is done by memory so sorry if some of it is inncorect.

The only man i can remember crying was Glyn.

Regards DB14
