Only brief mention of Bunny Roger's war service was made in Clive Fisher's admirable and sympathetic obituary [29 April], writes Raleigh Trevelyan. We Riflemen were often told of Bunny's great courage under fire, and how for instance he dragged a wounded fellow officer from a burning building that had been bombed.

One story may be apocryphal. When Bunny's sergeant told him that the Germans were advancing and asked what should be done, Bunny is said to have replied: "When in doubt, powder heavily".
