Lt. Melvill: Well done, Sir! Did you see that Noggs? Deceived him with the up and took him with the down. Norris-Newman: Well well, this one's a grandfather at least. If he'd been a Zulu in his prime I'd have given odds against your lancer, Mr.Melvill.

BROMHEAD Gonville.
Lieutenant 2nd Battalion 24th Regiment (later South Wales Borderers)
London Gazetted on 2nd May 1879.
VC Medal's Custodian is the South Wales Borderers Museum, Brecon, Wales.
Born on 29th August 1845 at Versailles, France.
Died on 9th February 1891 at Allahabad, India.
Memorials at grave in The New Cantonment Cemetery, Allahabad, India Also a plaque in the Havard Chapel, Brecon Cathedral. Memorials also at Magnus Grammar School, Newark on Trent and in Thurlby Church, Lincolnshire.

"Digest of Citation reads:
On 22nd and 23rd January 1879 at Rourke's Drift, Natal, South Africa, Lieutenant Bromhead shared the command of the defenders of the post with Lieutenant J.R.M.Chard of the Royal Engineers, setting a fine example and conducting himself with great gallantry in most trying circumstances
The Lieut. General commanding the troops, in his report, stated that if it was not for the fine conduct and excellent behaviour of these two officers under the most trying circumstances, the defence of Rorke's Drift post would not have been conducted with that intelligence and tenacity which so essentially characterised it."
