Thanks JY , certainly helps to find them if they are added with their correct names and or Titles Very Happy . This again from Mac & Shad .
Lt -Col H.Parnell , CB . 2 / 3rd Regt The Buffs , Commanded the Regt throughout the War , including the Battle of inyezane when his horse was shot under him , mentioned in Despatches ; the occupation of Eshowe , mentioned in dispatches as '' having rendered great service on all occasions by his tact and coolness ; and the advance to Port Durnford ( CB for Services )
On the 12th Jan three Co's under the command of Col Parnell , crossed the river ( Tugela ) and entrenched themselves on the rising ground on which Ft Tenedos was subsequently erected , on the 21st Jan other Co's of the Regt under Parnell , marched to , and destroyed the military Kraal at Gingindlovhu .
