Edward Fox: General Dyer
Government advocate : General Dyer, is it correct that you ordered your troops to fire at the thickest part of the crowd?
Gen. Dyer : [righteous tone] That is so.
Government advocate : One thousand five hundred and sixteen casualties with one thousand six hundred and fifty bullets.
Gen. Dyer : My intention was to inflict a lesson that would have an impact throughout all India.
Indian barrister : General, had you been able to take in the armored car, would you have opened fire with the machine gun?
Gen. Dyer : I think, probably, yes.
Lord Hunter : General, did you realize there were children, and women, in the crowd?
Gen. Dyer : I did.
Government advocate : But that was irrelevant to the point you were making?
Gen. Dyer : That is correct!
Government advocate : Could I ask you what provision you made for the wounded?
Gen. Dyer : I was ready to help any who applied.
Government advocate : General, how does a child shot with a 303 Lee-Enfield "apply" for help?
Gen. Dyer : [silence]
