How was Captain Godwin-Austen wounded? I've read in
various publications He was shot accidentally or was stabbed
during the ninth frontier war.
I have seen the Jacket in person with a big rent
up the back but stupidly didn't take a photo!

Shot accidentally by one of his own men.
But sorry, I don't have the testimony at hand.

From the Frontier War Journal of Major John Crealock 1878.

As commander of B Company of his Battalion he served under
Buller for a thrust into the Buffalo Poort and there was nearly
killed when a soldier behind him accidentally fired his loaded
rifle.

That's damned bad luck! I assume he survived?
I've emailed the museum in Brecon for a photo
Of the jacket.

Hi Ciroferrara

Just a few old photographs of the tunic when it was in storage back in the 1990's
