Horace Nancyball was a young Watchman in Night Watch. There are two types of constables found in every barracks or squadroom: the very tall, gangly one and the little stubby one. In the old Treacle Mine Road Watch House, when Sam Vimes was a recruit, the tall one was Horace Nancyball, the short guy was Billy Wiglet. Horace was remembered for not having the stomach for the job though he was not given time to realize this as he was killed on the barricade, one of the heroes of the Glorious Revolution.
