Hi PO Tom,

There may well have been more than one Pearse/Pearce.
However, the one I am have in mind was alive and detailed to the Princess Eugenie escort duty, post Isandhlwana.

Hi All.
I have posted the reason why Pearce returned , He went back to his tent to change bits ( Horse ) from a Snaffle to a regulation bit .
I also posted his Christian Names in my earlier post . Those who maybe confused go back to the start of the thread and take it from there . 😕
cheers 90th. Idea
