No error...read my post above: Sun Dec 30, 2012 3:00 pm
By the way Pascal, you asked me some time to find out where Prince Napoleon visited some wounded AZW men (incl a few French). It was Utrecht about 4th May. Who the French were, goodness knows! Perhaps they were Anglo-French, Channel Islanders, or Natalians of French extraction.

There is nothing wrong under the pretext that it is not a British ...

This guy took a chance, courage, will and physical strength unheard, to succeed to survive ...

If he was British, he would have had its weight in Victoria Cross ...

Cheers

Bonjour petites mains

Chauvinism and jealousy,Grandier and Vereker are the two greatest heroes of this war ...

In fact, all the French in the war were in the irregulars colonial cavalry of the fourth column and when you see what happened to Hlobane, it is certain that all these French were hero of this war..


Bonne journée petites mains,moi je m'endore

Pascal.

posted by 90th in the Trooper Charlie Sparks topic.

Quote :
This from page 435 ......
Stafford and Newnham - Davis reached Pietermaritzburg at 7 on thursday evening , the 24th of Jan. Utterly exhausted and semi hysterical , they sought out Sir Bartle Frere , who had already received an unconfirmed report . Trooper Charlie Sparks of the NMP -he who had stopped at Rorke's Drift - had ridden cross country past Helpmakaar before swinging into the Border road . Stafford and Newnham - Davis were ahead of him , but Sparks had encountered an officer of the 2 / 4 th who , with a fresh horse , had beatem them all into town , alerting Bulwer and Frere before he left to rejoin his regiment .

Could Sparks be the man????

Thank you for picking up on this. It's very kind of you. However, there's inaccurate newspaper reporting here for Sparks's OWN account states that he crossed at Fugitives' Drift where he saved Kincade, then rode cross-country direct to Helpmekaar (not stopping at RD), and thence hell for leather to PMB.
