For he to-day that sheds his blood with me
Shall be my brother; be he ne'er so vile,"
Brigadier General Nigel Humphreys-Farrell, KCSI, DSO, etc.,: "Bloody shame about the Maharaja. Bloody shame. But he died like a man and went to his gawd like a soldier. His highness, and his regiment, probably would have survived the battle if it hadn't been for the Brutal discipline of Colonel Crochet. Shameful treating of soldiers like that. Underestimated that Russian Machine gun. Bloody nuisance keeping our irregulars out of the engagement and then chasing them off. Recommend machine guns be sent to brigade in Chaimbellistan. Fortunately for us it was a one man show - must tip my hat to the Lifeguard as no one else (fortuanately) gave them any help. Put in dispatches Lieutenant Colonel John Bryce Hill and Subedar Major Ajeet Deol of the 19th Punjabis. Good show those men. Saved the village. Quite. God save the Queen.
