The gray flags were bare except where the carbineer's body lay.
These were Lieutenant Adendorff, of Lonsdale's regiment, and a carbineer.
Or rather one carbineer—Sergeant Pinale, who has been at the bottom of many an honest contrabandist's misfortune.
But I think the only man killed was a carbineer, who had his throat cut by a splinter as he lay asleep in his tent.
But just one happened to drop in the Natal carbineer lines while the horses were being groomed.
