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.
