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

A quick question for you. Can anyone help me by giving me the page reference in Terry Sole’s book “For God, Queen and Colony” for his remark that Lieut. Erskine received medical treatment from Surgeon Major Reynolds at Rorke's Drift on 23rd January.
I believe he was mistaken. Did he give a footnote for it at all?

Hi Julian
It's on page 273 . '' Lt Erskine escaped with an assegai wound of the leg . The wound was not severe and required no more than a bandage , applied by Dr Reynolds at Rorke's Drift to facilitate healing '' . No Footnote .
