The story rests on the sergeant's authority, and there seems no reason to doubt him, or Flashman - or for that matter, Doyle's poem, which only errs (possibly deliberately) in presenting Moyes as a young Kentish country boy, when in fact he was a fairly disreputable Scot, old enough, it is said, to have been broken from the rank of colour sergeant for insubordination - which seems characteristic.
