Death of Brigadier General Cureton, in the Skirmish near Ramnugger
The Illustrated London News - "Nothing could exceed the accuracy of the enemy's fire; their range was beauifully taken for certain points, showing that they must have discovered them previous to our advance; and our artillery officers say they never saw anything finer than the way their Horse Artillery were brought up to the edge of the river, and formed up. No nation could exceed them in the rapidity of their fire. It is said that a Frenchman, late an officer in the Maharajah Runjeet Singh's service, aide-de-camp to General Avitabile, named L'Enfant, commands them. No men could act more bravely than the Sikhs. They faced us the moment we came on them, firing all the time, and, when we did come on them, some opened out and immediately after closed round us, while others threw themselves on their faces or turned their backs, protecte by a shield from the stroke of the Dragoon sbre, and the moment that was given, turned round, hamstrung the horse, and shot the rider, while their individual acts of bravery were the admiration of all...." 27/1/1849
