I cannot conscientiously hold out any but the slenderest hope of his having been taken prisoner and I know him too well to think that he would have submitted to that fate. He was a favourite with everyone in the company, not only because of his fine soldierly qualities but because he commanded the respect and spirit of camaraderie among his men, which only a man of moral strength and truly manly disposition could command. He recognised not only his duty to his country but at all times the responsibilities of his manhood and succeeded in implanting the same spirit of unselfishness and goodwill amongst his men.
