    Note: During one of the minor actions before Ladysmith, as related by General White, the sergeant, in command of the guns was sitting doubled up on the train of his gun, when a 4.7 shell took off his leg high up on one side and took his arm out of its socket, and he fell across the trail of the gun as though an inanimate, speechless man. But I to the astonishment of every man amongst them a voice came from the mass inciting them to do their duty. "Here, you men, roll me out of the way, and go on working the gun!" It was Sergeant Boseley.
