Rod Maclewin and Archy Buller joined the navy for reasons as different as their own personal lives, one a rich and privileged officer, the other a rating from the lower deck. A bond was sealed in the burning heat of the South African veldt, when Buller's Naval Brigade guns went into action against the rebellious Boer farmers in the disastrous Battle of Colenso.
