Letter to Charles' parents from his commanding officer

“None of my officers was cooler under fire than your boy, and none more ready to undertake cheerfully any duty, however disagreeable and irksome. He was liked and respected by all ranks, and was most popular with the men of his Company, his Captain and Adjutant. We all admired his pluck and good spirits.”
