Major General Sir Redvers Buller VC


Agent Triple P is currently reading an excellent book about the wars in the Sudan in the nineteenth century: Michael Asher's Khartoum

We particularly approve of Major General Sir Redvers Buller VC because, whilst he could not gather enough camels together for the Gordon relief expedition desert column, he did manage to procure himself 46 camels just to carry his personal supply of Fortnum & Mason delicacies and magnums of Veuve Clicquot on campaign. We salute you Sir Redvers. What a jolly fine chap!
