Hours after the Battle of Burhanpur, a singularly long jezail was fired at General Pettygree. He fell to the ground and could not be revived. That story continues here:

I was shocked to read that General Pettygree (peobably) died. Fortunately the story goes on ! Thank you !!

Dieing is no excuse to stop fighting

Absolutely brilliant!!

Cracking tale! Now, tell the good general to stop "swannin' aboot" the hereafter and get back to the here and, uhm, then. Britain needs him, as does India. The Thuggees and their new majarasha aren't to be stopped by pretty lights and a girl in gauzy attire. Chop, chop, now, General!

Surgeon, quick! Force some brandy between his clenched teeth! Stimulants, man, stimulants!!!!
<Pettygree's internal voice: "No, no, no! Not brandy, you silly soldier--whisky! And make it the good stuff!">
