Farrell and J. Malone, came to his assistance and between them they carried the wounded officer out of range of the guns. He also saw service in the Angla Zulu War of 1879 as a Quartermaster Major and retired at that rank.

Hi Mr Greaves

The reason I can be quick, is that the person mentioned is in my database. I have been collecting any info of these chaps for the last 20 years. I also used to go and photograph their graves but time and money puts a hold on grave hunting for now. :lol!:
