"Proceedings of a Court of Enquiry, assembled at Helpmakaar, Natal, on the 27th January, 1879, by order of His Excellency the Lieutenant-General Commanding the troops in South, Africa, dated 24th January, 1879.
President:
Colonel F. C. Hassard, C.B., Royal Engineers.
Members
Lieutenant-Colonel Law, Royal Artillery.
Lieutenant-Colonel Harness, Royal Artillery"

There doesn't seem to be much on the web regarding Lieutenant-Colonel Law, Royal Artillery. He was present at the COE, so wondering if he had left any personal thoughts either on the Battle of Isandlwana, or the COE.

I did the same and got nothing. But type the full name into Google and it comes up!

There is a photo of the grave in the original post. And there is a photo of Law in the Royal Collection - but they are sticky about copyright.
