Major Gonville Bromhead born August 1845, Versailles France, (Bromhead was considered Irish, due to his mother being Irish.) was an English recipient of the Victoria Cross.
He was promoted to Lieutenant in October 1871.
Imediatley after the battle of Rorkes Drift he was promoted to the rank of Captain and then to the rank of Brevet Major, despite being partly deaf.
At age 33 he commanded the B Company, 2nd Battalion, 24th Foot which later became the 'South Wales Borderers'.
He died on the 9th February 1882 at Camp Dabhaura, Allahabad, British India where he is burried in a cemetary.
The church at Thurlby in Lincolnshire has a stained glass window dedicated to him. His grandfather, who fought at the Battle of Waterloo, is buried in its churchyard. His Victoria Cross is displayed at the South Wales Borderers Museum (Brecon, Powys, Wales).
He also had a book wrote with him being the main character, 'Releif'.
A school house is also named after him at Thomas Magnus Grammar School in Newark, Nottinghamshire where he was educated.
