    I'm sifting through a batch of these for clues about a few specific units and have stumbled, by chance, upon a couple that seem remarkable for a variety of reasons. This, from a Malayan Scout (SAS), must have given everybody involved the unholy fear--most of all Trooper Twigden himself. All the same, in spite of the abysmal communication, the chap must have had his wits about him.

    We can only guess at what Trooper Hodgkiss's fate might have been once it was all over.
