Most of you probably have no clue who this is, but Captain Bugloss was the Efrafan Owlsa that the first search party tricked into letting them escape. In the book he is actually described as tired and a bit old, but in the movie he just sorta... blends in with all the other Efrafan Owlsa.

Yes, I knew that. Holly, Silver, Strawberry and Buckthorn. If I remember correctly, Holly pretended to be an officer and asked Bugloss to report to someone. Now I feel like reading the book again.

A harder one: Do you remember what warren Feverfew is from?

Wasn't him the one who got demoted -and possibly arrested- because he fell for the aforementioned scheme?

I remember Bugloss.  I always felt sorry for him, losing his rank because of that simple mistake.  I don't remember seeing him in the film though.  His role must have been very brief.

I don't think I remember Feverfew.  I guess he was one of the rabbits in Sandleford who escaped its immediate destruction but whose ultimate fate is unknown?
