The Indian Frontier War. [Newspaper Article] — The Muswellbrook Chronicle — 2 March 1898

The Indian Frontier War. The announcement that General Lock hart does not intend to take a couple of months' leave, but will remain in Ipdia and command the fighting on the British side which will begin with the flowers that bloom in the spring, gives confirmation to the statements now generally made in Great Britain and in Ireland that the fighting which was suspended a month or so ago was by no means a success so far as the British troops were concerned. The campaign showed that many staff officers are in capable of commanding troops in the field. The best of Indian papers, the Pioneer, declared that " the instances where the troops have been well handled have been few and far between, whilst the occasions of serious blundering have been numerous. Happy-go-lucky arrangements were often made, mo re particularly in the matter of rear-guar d actions, lesulting in a few hundred British soldiers and Sepoys having again and again to fight desperately to save their skins, while within tw...

What Colonel Lasseter Thinks. [Newspaper Article] — The Muswellbrook Chronicle — 2 March 1898

What Colonel Lasseter Thinks. Colonel Lassetter arrived from Lon dou via Marseilles by the F.M.S. Yille de la Oiotat at Albany on Friday, and on being interviewed by a press man gave his opinion about his trip in general. In speaking of Australian horses, he slid : I don't think it would pay to send horses of the pre sent breed id Australia to England. The prices realised by the sale of the horses of the mounted Rifles averaged £45, and were a distinct loss when cost of freight, insurance, and forage were consdered. When in England forage was supplied free by the Brit ish Government, and the men did the grooming free. My experience teaches me that the horses must be turned out in England for six months after land ing before they can be fit for sale. This allows them to recover from the effects of the change of climate pas sing through the tropics and then landing in England. The Kifle's horses suffered dreadfully from influ enza, and mnnj''were effected to such an extent that they n...
