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

Kate,

I think you mean lager! I despair sometimes...

You Black Rats can only write in yellow crayon...

Quite a stout chap Chelmsford though he did have some alements such as never getting a round in for his men thus leading to the ammunition debacle.

Communications were vital to him on campaign and after he'd drawn up a draught message he would use a Porter to deliver it.
Some say he lost his bottle and that he ended up carrying the can for his mistakes.
Personally I don't think he lagered his camp due to a harrowing childhood  caused by being raised by evil Foster parents.

As for yellow crayons JY, when you are the elite of the elite , its all you need.
(At least, unlike the TSG, we can spell it.)
Very Happy

Hi Kate
I have to differ on Chelmsfords parsimony, he is on record of 'sharing a bottle', I will leave you to find out with whom. Very Happy Very Happy agree

Cheers
