‘ [362] Please take my name and if I get killed inform my officers of it.’ I said: ‘I have no time now for writing. How high up did they blow you?’ He said: ‘I don't know, but as I was going up I met the company commissary officer coming down, and he said: “I will try to have breakfast ready by the time you get down.” ’

I have often since wished I had taken his name and regiment, for he was truly a ‘rough diamond,’ a brave fellow. He went in the charge with us, but I do not know whether he survived it or not. I never saw him again.
