A singular blunder on the part of the Military Remount Department has just come to light at Colchester. A consignment of horse was sent from Colchester to Southampton for shipment to South Africa. The emptied horse-boxes were returned to Colchester and shunted into a siding. Two days later a noise was heard in one of them, and a horse was found there which had unaccountably been overlooked at Southampton.

(Lancashire Daily Post, 7 February 1902)
