The colossal Rosse reflector still marks, as to size, the ne plus ultra of performance in that line.
For this act the regimental commander highly commended Rosse, remarking on his “high sense of duty and exceptional courage.”
A witness never influenced by imagination has now come forward, and the infallible photographic plate has justified Lord Rosse.

Personally and socially Lord Rosse endeared himself to all with whom he came in contact.
