This would have been the kind of camp the four Bailey brothers set up. Lewis was on detached duty as a musician. We think he escaped capture because of this. William looked after his three brothers, as he was the oldest. Lewis was only sixteen at the time. I know they were happy that he escaped capture, as the weather was so severe. Lack of food and warm clothing made it hard for any of them to survive.
