During the second battle of 16 October, Col. Lawford ordered his 9th Bengal Lancers to charge a massive enemy force bent on turning the Imperial Right Flank. This desperate measure slowed the horde but did not stop it. See Chapter 36.
Pettygree: "Have we our volunteers?
Trevelyan: "Yes General, we do. Lt. Caddy, Royal Engineers and acting Captain Gill, 9th Bengal Lancers. Here they come now."
Pettygree: "Thank you for your volunteerism gentlemen."
Trevelyan: "This is a dangerous undertaking but worth the risk I should think."
Gill: "Aye Major, we know.
Caddy: "And Sir, the men who signed on with us are eager for a good hunt."
Preece: "Are you ready to leave tonight - under cover of darkness?
Gill: "Yes Sir."
Pettygree: "Well done. I hope Lawford is still alive."

For how long can the brave lads keep their hopes alive? Are the rescuers prepared for the arduous task ahead of them? We all wait with baited breath as you and Chuck prepare for the next installment.
You certainly know how to spin a good yarn eh?
Very exciting indeed. I see a prison break ahead - my favorite!
Shaping up splendidly. Thanks for another exciting narrative Bill.
I particularly enjoyed the "camp scenes" where the officers were discussing matters.
Another great report! Will our Hero be rescued??? I await the next installment!
