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.

As far as Im aware there were only two bandsmen that escaped, Bickley and Wilson, so the source material cant be that hard to check !

Hi DB / Springbok.
I too have checked Bickley and Wilson's statements from THE NOBLE 24TH and they both made
no such statements saying Younghusband turned a wagon into a rifle pit . I'm with DB14 that if anyone
did witness that they couldnt have survived getting out of the camp let alone making it to the river .
cheers 90th. Idea

I cant remember the source but I think Dugald Macphail was credited with being the last of the suvivors, or at least amongst the last out and he most certainly doesnt mention a rifle pit concept.

It all ties back to a comment Julian made of rumours becoming stories becoming fact becoming history.
