Important Flashman on the March Update

I've discovered that I neglected to mention an important fact in my comments on Flashman on the March, namely that an important character in the book is Field Marshal Robert Napier, or, as Flashman calls him, Bughunter Bob. I might have said that this was a tuckerization of Cap'n Bob Napier, a frequent commenter here, except that Bughunter Bob outranks the Cap'n and is an actual historical character besides. Perhaps the Cap'n is a distant relation.

I'm sure great-uncle Bughunter would be proud of his inclusion in this fine series.
