Graves,

Here's a clue.

He would serve in both Boer Wars.

No, Hill wasn't a Special Service officer, he was deployed with his regiment.

I haven't got a clue either but he has quite distinctive features. Was he also a Special Service Officer in both Boer Wars or with his regiment?

Steve,

He was a Special Service officer in 1880-1, at the start of the 1899-1902 outing he was serving in different regiment to the one he was originally commissioned into. By the conclusion of it he wasn't in a regiment at all.

He would go from being a Holy Boy to become Lady from Hell.

Lt William Francis Dundonald Cochrane 32nd regiment almost fits but not quite. He was a Special Service officer and went on to become a Major-General, but I don't think he served in the Boer Wars.

So he was the old 9th (Norfolk Regiment) then the Black Watch, still can't get him though. Was he at Magersfontein?

Graves,

Well done, the next clue was to have been that his son would outrank him!

Steve,

He hadn't changed too much in twenty-odd years had he.
