Kiplings poem reffers to the captain that lead the charge in Africa that may have resulted in the Boer war. This is a fantastic poem and well worth all the priase, but does anyone know of greater information that found on the history of the poem itself.
Cheers.

There's a little bit here:

There it says that Kipling was inspired by "Jameson and Rhodes." (Cecil Rhodes and Leander Starr Jameson)


Search for [Kipling + Jameson + Rhodes] and you'll get plenty of historical essays tying things together, such as:
