Daily Mail confuses Rudyard Kipling with George MacDonald Fraser

Here (thanks JD):

Rudyard Kipling, renowned for his brilliant books celebrating marital glory at the height of the British Empire, was also left a broken man when John – a chronically short sighted teenager – was cut down in the mud and rain of northern France.

So perhaps not really. I suppose Kipling might now want to alter the penultimate stanza to include providing cheap copy for the Daily Quail.
