"Look here, McNeill, Ton most goon.
If yon fall behind now, these d d Soudan
ese friendlics will murder yon. Here, try
this," and he handed me his water bottle
containing a little a Tery little tea. I
drank, and was immediately refreshed, for
like the young soldier I was, I had thought
lessly drained my own supply of water
some hours before, and that meant for me
torture from thirst until the following
moraine, when our bottles would he replen
ished from the commissariat again.
I was private in that well-known regi
ment of Highlanders, "Ihe Black "Watch,"
and we were then in the desert column, a
part of the forces, which under the general
ship of Lord "Wolseley, were proceeding to
Khartoum for the relief of General Gordon.
We were under the command ol General
Earle, a thoroughly brave and experienced
officer, who had risen from the ranks. We
were somewhere on the desert between Am
lnara and Kirbekan. All day long we had
been pestered by the heat, and the Arabs
were close npon us. AYe were marching in
square and that made it worse for us, and I
was just going to lie down to die when
Geordie cave me his last drop of tea.
Geordie Terris, my comrade, was a well
built Highlander, possessing the strength of
two ordinary men and the caution of a
An Attack in the Night.
On we staggered through that desert,sink
ing ankle deep in the sand at every step,
until about 3 in the afternoon, when we got
the order to halt for the night; but our work
was not over, for we had then to go and cut
wood from the scrub to lorni a zereba or
stockade round the camp. After this was
done, I threw myself down on the hot sand,
too tired and exhausted to eat the hard biscuit
that Geordie offered me.
1 had slept about three hours when I
was awakened by the report of a rifle close
by me. In an instant all was uproar.
Ulack Watch, man the zereba, shouted
our Colonel, Jamie Green, and as we had
lain down in our ranks all round the zereba,
this was not difficult to do. The men of the
Stafford Keginient were blazing away
on their side of the zereba, nnd
for the moment all was contusion, for the
darkness was intense. The firing ceased al
most as suddenly as it began, and then there
was silence except for the orders from the
General to his staff. "We silently awaited
the terrible yell of the Arabs, and the sud
den rush which we knew too well, but none
came. Two hours we stood waiting. Then
scouts were sent out in all directions to see
where the enemy was.
It Was a raise Alarm.
"When they came back and reported no
enemy in sight, we were allowed to lie down
again. It was a false alarm, but there was
no more sleep for me that night. Sly nerves
had been strung to their utmost. "Whin
morning came, I went over to the company
orderly corporal to get Geordie's rations
and my own lor the day, and had breakfast
read- before Geordie awoke. After break
last we fell in and marched out of the
lereba towards some hills that lay about
seven miles in front of us. The camel corps
was sent away ahead to reconuoiter.
It was a beautiful morning, and the sun
had not yet risen. "We were all in capital
spirits, lauching and chatting with each
other. Some soldiers in the leailintr com-
Sjny commenced sincing, "Slaxwelltoun
iraes Are Bonnie," and before they had
reached the second line, the snng was taken
up company alter company until the whole
Itegiment of Highlanders joined in "Where
early lalls the dew; and 'tis there that
Annie'Laurie gave me her promise true,"
even our stern old Colonel turning on his
horse to start the air over and over again.
The Bills Tall of Arabs.
When within a short distance of the hills
we formed into fighting order again, and
just in time, too, lor a little later a shell
burst quite close to us. The hills were
teeming with Arabs. General Earle sent
an officer of his staff with a dispatch telling
the Soudanese to let us pass peaceably and
we would not harm them. The officer rode
away with a white handkerchief tied to the
end of his sword, waving the token of peace
to attract their attention. The Soudanese
ceased firing until he came close to them,
when all at once they opened fire on him,
but he seemed not to heed their bullets, tor
he rode straight at them. When closo to
their position, he threw the dispatch at
them; then, turning his horse quickly, he
galloped back to our lines, pursued by about
100 mounted Arabs. He reached us in
During this piece of by play our troops
had not been idle. Three companies of my
own regiment had been dispatched along
with the marines to the other side of the
hills, for the purpose of outflanking tbe
enemy; then tne Staffords moved forward to
the "attack," forming tbeir own supports.
We were to be tbe attacking party, and
we had hitherto fought in square on the de
fensive. The soldier who has once fought in
square does not wish lor a repetition of its
horrorB crushed together until one has not
room to use his weapons, enveloped in smoke
until hean't see anything in front of him,
with the jells of the Arabs on all sides
rising above the incessant roar of musketry.
If one has to die in battle, it is far better to
die attacking than to be butchered in
Tho Colonel Get Angry.
Our reeiment was advancing slowly round
the base of the hill, when a regular storm of
bullets swept among us, killing some and
wounding many. "Lie down, laddies!"
commanded Colonel Green, but he still re
mained on horseback himself a good mark
for the enemy. There was a huge rock
alongside Colonel Green, and a well-aimed
volley struck this rock, causing the chips to
fly all over him. The Colonel evidently
thocght that some mutinous soldiers were
throwing stones at him. for, turning angrily
to us, be roared: "Who's that poppin'
This set us laughing, which was, after all,
what the Colonel wanted, for, smiling, he
turned to watch tbe Soudanese again.
The Staffords had by this time reached
their position, and we, got the order to ad
vance. We moved but slowly, firine vol
leys occasionally, until we reached an ele
vated portion of ground, where we lay down
end poured volley alter volley into thedense
crowd of Arabs, so as to cover the advance
of the Staffordshire regiment. The Staffords
advanced, taking advantage of every piece
of cover, until they came within 150 yards
of the enemy, when their bugles sounded
the charge, and then, with a cheer, they
runbed up the bill. But the terrible fire of
tbe Arabs drove them back to their cover.
Twice they tried and failed, and as they
were resting for their third attempt General
Earle galloped over to us and shouted:
"Men of the Black Watch: Forward!"
A Brave Comrade's Death.
2ow that the supreme moment had ar
rived, I felt a strange tightening of my
chest, and my heart seemed almost to stop
beating. So much did this feeling oppress
m that 1 felt as weak as a child. "Now,
" in." said Geordie, "don't fire off your
rifle until we come up to them, for you'will
need it then."
As we advanced from our place of shelter,
I shook hands with him, and even as be was
shaking my hand a bullet struck him, and
he fell lifeless. Sorrow at his supposed
death made me heedless of the bullets that
whistled all round me, and I pressed on wkh
my regiment wildly desirous of revenge.
In a very short space of time we came
within charging distance of the Arabs, and
then we halted, and kneelinc, poured snch
a destructive individual fire into tbe
enemy's ranks that it seemed to waver.
Seeing this Earle gave us the command to
charce, and charge we did, the pipers play
ins "The Campbell's Are Coming."
Up the rocks we scrambled somehow.
When near the Arabs I found myself in
front ol a great boulder, on the top of which
Ronald McKenzie, a piper, was playing as
if his life depended on it, though tho'usands
of Arabs were within a Jew yards of him.
He was one of the first to reach the top.
When we got to the head of the hill we
paused a second to eet into line again, and
then, with General Earle himselt at our
head, we dashed at the Arabs.
I , , , Surprised From the Rear.
Of what followed, I cannot with certainty
tell. I have only a vague recollection of
firing at a black face that stood in front of
me, and thrustinc, pushinc, kicking my
way through the Arabs and they were get
tine the best of us, too when suddenly I
heard great cheering, and dimly saw
through the smoke the marines and' High
landers who had been sent around the hills
to outflank them, coming charging down on
the AraDs. Taken by surprise, in front aad
rear, tbe enemy broke and ran, pursued by
the few, the very Sew, cavalry that remained
Abont a hundred of the Soudanese took
refuge in an old stone building close by
me. Brevet Colonel waucbope, the cap
tain tit my company, who is a brother-in-law
of General Wolsey, was leaning against
the wall when they ran past him to get into
the fort. Two of the Arabs rushed at him,
one brandishing a huge two-handed
sword, the other with a knife. Colonel
Wauchope killed the Dervish who
carried the sword, but the other
closed with him ana both rolled on the
ground, the Arab with his knife driven
into Wauchope's shoulder trying to cut him
open. Jock McNeill and I ran to help our
Captain and while I held the Arab down,
Jock, with a skean dhu, or black knife, cut
A Ghastly Spectacle.
We couldn't help laughing when we
helped the Colonel to rise. His kilt had
been torn off in the struggle, the blood of
the Arab had run all over his face, dyeing
his red hair to a still more reddish color,
the kni.'e still sticking in his shoulder.
Taking him altogether he was the finest
specimen oi a scarecrow that we had ever
We rejoined our company which had di
rected its attention to the Arabs inside the
building, and were only waiting for a small
field gun to come up to blow them into
eternity. I was lying on the ground watch
ing the house when General Earle came
running up, his sword red with blood, and a
revolver in his left hand. He went up to
an open window and was looking in when a
Serceant of mv reeiment caujrht him by the
arm and told him the house was full of
Arabs. But he shook him off, and going
back to the window commenced firing among
the Arabs inside.
Suddenly a shot rang out, and the Gen
eral throwing up his hands fell dead. The
rifle had been fired so close to him that the
upper part of his head was blown off.
The soldiers, mad with rage at the death
of their General, gathered all the wood they
could find and set fire to the bnilding, roast
ing the Arabs alive. Some tried to escape
by the window, but as fast as they came out
they were cut to pieces. Not one escaped.
Hunting; His Comrade.
I now asked and received permission to
look for my comrade, and going back the
way I came I passed Itonald, the piper,
sitting on the gronnd nursing his pipes.
"Hello, Eonald, what is the matter with
you," I exclaimed, for he was rocking the
pipes to and fro and mnttering all the while
"Matter enough," he replied; "them
tarnel Arabs ha'e purst as fine a set o' pag
pipes as e'er cam' o'ot o' praid Scotland."
A little bit farther down tbe hill I passed
two soldiers, dead, and horribly mutilated.
Some fugitive Arabs had seen them, I sup
pose, and vented tbeir rage on their bodies.
This caused me to go fatter, for I did not
like to think of Geordie being used in that
way. At last I reached the spot where he
fell, and to my astonishment he was not
Looking round I perceived the bodies of
an Arab and Highlander lying close to
gether. I walked over to see who the sol
dier was, and, when I came closer, I saw
that he was my comrade. Kneeling beside
him, I could see that he had been shot
thronsh the neck. He was breathing a lit
tle, but unconscious.
A Life Saved.
I poured a little tea from ray water bottle
donn his throat, and he was soon able to sit
up. While he was recovering, I tore my
shirt into strips, and succeeded in stopping
the flow of biood. Then calling on some
soldiers who werejnear, welcarried him into
camp, where I got his wound dressed prop
erly. He was then sent to the hospital boat
on tbe Nile.
When he regained strength again, he re
joined us at Merawe, just above the fourth
cataract, and he then told mc that when he
recovered consciousness after being shot, he
had tried to rejoin us, bnt feeling faint, he
lay down to rest, when an Arab saw him,
and be had only time to fire when he again
In this engagement there were 3,000 of the
Soudanese killed. Our losses were trifling.
That night we encamped on the 'field of
battle, and tbe next day, after burying our
dead, we again marched on, as the cry then
was, "On to Khartoum 1"
