DB14,

Schiess' V.C. was passed to the then War Office, presumably by the Captain of H.M.T. 'Serapis', where it languished in an office desk for some years.

It was sent to the National Army Museum, which was originally at the Royal Military College. It was from there transferred to the National Army Museum at Chelsea when that buidling opened in the late 1960's or early 1970's, where it remains on display in the Zulu War case.
