Lord Chelmsford Said .Buller is ‘one of the finest soldiers of the century’, so modest and reticent –that it was difficult to say for what individual deed he had got the Victoria Cross as he had been doing acts worthy of it all along the line

From an unamed Carbineer on the 11th of Febaury 1879.

"You asked if i recognized any of our men who were killed. Well i didn't but some of the other did. They identified troopers Swift, Tarboton (who had his head cut clean off), and the two Jackson's. Swift was the man who had died hard. It seems they killed him with knobkerries. Mackleroy was shot in the side while fighting with the others. He managed to get on his horse and ride half a mile before falling and never being seen again. George Shspstone was shot dead. Moodie turned out and was seen to fire some shots, but Dean must have been killed in his tent."
