university challenge

Congratulations to Klintworth from Woking, reading History at Exeter University, who correctly answered the question on last night's University Challenge: 'Writing in 1885 for whom did Tennyson provide the epitaph - 'Warrior of God, man's friend not here below, but somewhere dead far in the waste Soudan'?'' The correct answer? General Gordon. The full epitaph: 

Warrior of God, man’s friend, and tyrant’s foe; Now somewhere dead far in the waste Soudan; Thou livest in all hearts, for all men know; This earth has never borne a nobler man.
