  3. Thank you for your comments guy's, incidentally Brig.Gen.Rowe led his regiment "Scots Fusiliers" in the first assault and ordered his men not to fire until he himself had reached the palisade. This he did and just at the moment of hitting the defences with his sword and the order "fire" on his tongue, he was shot dead along with the junior officers who tried to retrieve his body.
