Snook mentions a letter from Mansel that records 50 24th lying in a group that he further suggests
belong to A Company 1/24th.

Does anyone know where this Mansel letter is from or where it is quoted in full as Snook does not give foot notes.

Cheers for any help
Sam

Sam,
There is an another source about "the fifty corpses" but the unit and the Coy (A Coy according to Snook) is not mentioned.
Cheers.
