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.

Captain William Edward Montague served with the Regiment until he was appointed Staff Officer to Colonel Collingwood, Commanding 2nd Brigade, Newdigate’s Division, in which capacity he served until the forces were re-organised. Served also in the Sekukuni Campaign until invalided home in consequence of a severe fall from his horse.

“He received his first commission in August 1860 and was a staff officer at Port Marshall prior to his transfer to the 'Flying Column' which conducted operations against hostile chiefs in the Transvaal. Shortly before the First Anglo-Boer War he also took part in the Zulu Campaign (1879) in Natal. When the war broke out in 1880, Maj Montague, who was attached to the 94th Regiment at the time, was sent from Pietermaritzburg to take over the command of the British garrison at Stander- ton. During the siege of the town which lasted 88 days, he led two sorties against the enemy positons but only slight casualties were suffered on both sides. In 1881 Montague was promoted to lieutenant-colonel, a rank he held until his retirement in July 1887 when he received a honorary rank of major-general. He died on 5th June 1906 at Ilfracombe.
