Here's more to add to Daves post.

DEATHS IN THE SERVICES
"Major-General JOHN DALLAS EDGE, C.B., late R.A.M.C.,
died in Dublin on April 30, aged 89. He was born on
March 9, 1848, the son of Mr. Joseph Edge of Timahoe,
Queen's County, and was educated at the Meath Hospital,
Dublin, taking the L.R.C.-S.I. in 1870, and graduating M.D. of
the Queen's, later the Royal, University of Ireland in the same
year; subsequently he took the F.R.C.S.I. in 1889. Entering
the Army as assistant surgeon on September 30, 1871, he
was specially promoted to surgeon on August 20, 1873,
became full colonel on June 1, 1901, and surgeon-general on
November 11, 1903, retiring on March 9, 1908. Soon after
entering the Army he was sent to British Honduras and
attached to the 1st West India Regiment. On September 1,
1872, the fortified barracks.at the small town of Orange Walk,
where he was then serving, was surprised and rushed by a
party of some 200 Ycaiche Indians. The only other British
officer present, Lieutenant Smith, was severely wounded, and
the defence fell on Edge, who conducted it successfully; some
fifty Indians were killed, and almost half of the defending
party were wounded. For this exploit Edge was specially
promoted to surgeon. This was only the first of a long
series of war services. He took part in the Zulu War of
1879, when he was present at the Battle of Gingiulovo and
the relief of Etshowe, receiving the medal with a clasp.
Immediately afterwards he was transferred to India, where he
served in the Second Afghan War, taking part in the Battle
of Maiwand and the defence of Kandahar, and received the
thanks of the Government of India, as well as the Afghan
medal with a clasp. In 188.2 he accompanied the Indian
contingent to Egypt, where he served at the Battle of Tel-el-
Kebir, and the forced march to and occupation of Zagazig,
receiving the Egyptian medal with a clasp, the Khedive's
bronze star, and the.fourth class of the Osmanieh. He next
served in the Burmese War of 1887, receiving the Frontier
medal with two clasps. On the outbreak of the South African
War he went with Buller's army to Natal, but was soon after
appointed P.M.O. of the Third Division under General
Gatacre, and was present in the action at Stormberg. Subsequently
he served as P.M.O. of lines of communication and
of Johannesburg district, took part in operations in the Orange
Free State, Cape Colony, and the Transvaal, was mentioned
in dispatches in the Londoni Gazette of June 17, 1902, and
received the Queen's medal with three clasps and the King's
medal with two clasps, and the C.B. After the war he
remained in South Africa as P.M.O., first of Cape Colony and
then of the South African Command. In February, 1905, he
returned home, and served as P.M.O. of the Irish Command
until his retirement. In 1914 he received a good service"
