Although ultimately I would perish I always wanted to be Younghusband but after some thought I think now that it is more or less fact that he took part in the last stand of the 24th I think Anstey would be my man. I have this morbid fascination with what was going through his head knowing he would never escape but also having to rally his men who also knew their fate.
