Begining of the siege
Arrival of the police from Wangaratta
We arrived at the break in the line at Glenrowan at about 5.40am
When I got off the engine, and Mr Rawlins met us with a lantern, I was under the impression the house was full of sympathizers, who were prepared to resist-that was the first impression I had. (RC13983) see also (RC9407)
Capture of Ned Kelly
At the capture of Ned Kelly I got the revolver from Sergeant Steele; he handed it to me. I ran up when Ned Kelly was knocked over, and Sergeant Steele was kneeling on Ned Kelly, and he handed me the revolver, I was in company with Dr. Nicholson. It was passed around and I lost it. I only saw one revolver on Ned Kelly. (RC13975) see also (RC10929)
