"Lieutenant-General Henry Fanshawe Davies of Elmley Castle, Worcestershire was born in 1837. Appointed Midshipman in the Royal Navy in 1852 he served with the Navy in the Burma War and in the Baltic. The family had a long history of association with the Grenadier Guards and with the death of his brother Lieutenant F.B. Davies in the trenches before Sebastopol, H.F. Davies resigned his Naval Commission and continued with the family tradition by taking a Lieutenancy in the Grenadier Guards in 1854. Promoted Captain in 1857, he was advanced Colonel in 1870 and sailed for the Cape, for service in the Zulu War, in March 1879. Davies commanded the drafts of the 24th Foot, on board the Troop Transport Clyde; which sank after running onto the reefs off Dyers Island and was in charge of all the troops at the wreck, ensuring their eventual safety. Having arrived in South Africa he joined Major-General Newdigate's Staff and was appointed Officer Commanding of an advanced depot at Conference Hill, May 1879 and was appointed Officer Commanding of Fort Newdigate, the advanced post for the assault on Ulundi (M.I.D. London Gazette 7.5.1879). He commanded the 1st Battalion Grenadier Guards, 1880-85; Major-General Commanding Cork District, 1889; Lieutenant-General 1893; retired 1898 and was made Honorary Colonel of the Lincolns, 1908. He is buried at Elmley Castle, near Evesham.
Approximately 16 South Africa 1877-79 medals, all with '1879' clasp awards were issued to the Grenadier Guards. Davies was the Senior Officer present during the campaign."
