In Sergeant-Major Rundles narrative we have the interesting story of how an honest English boy became attracted to the colors- how the British army lives, moves and has its being in the British Isles and in the Dominions beyond the seas- how that boy rose by honest effort to the highest non-commissioned position in that army- and most interesting of all, his experience on foreign service when his regiment took part in the Trent affair and Fenian raids, following the close of the American civil war. Later, Sergeant Rundle became instructor at the Toronto Military School, where he trained some men now very prominent in Canadian affairs. He also was a member of the Red River expedition, which helped very much to open up and develop that western empire whose golden tide of grain is now flowing into the wheat bins of the British Empire.
