And when I remember the pranks played by Brigadiers, and Major Generals, who to save their lives could not have told me in technical terms the difference between a Column 'left' or one 'right in front' - I now not - cannot understand why the enemy has not succeeded continuously..."; George Guiney A.L.S.
