Thanks for your good wishes. If you ever watched the television series about Richard Sharpe - the character created by Bernard Cornwell in the brilliant books mainly about the Penisular Wars their was one episode which concerned a ’Forlorn Hope’. It was the first time I had heard about it and it’s no wonder that promotion was offered to any man leading such a mission and surviving.
Perhaps that’s what subconciously made me use the expression.
Once a Lancer, always a Lancer!
