Winsloe, Col Richard William Charles (1835.1917)

“At the outbreak of the war he was a seasoned soldier with a war service dating back to the Crimean Campaign (1855~56) and the siege of Sevastopol. During the Zulu War (1869) he was seriously wounded at the Battle of Ulundi. Following the 'waggon affair' at Potchefstroom, Lt Col Winsloe with 140 men of the 21st Regiment and Maj R. A. Thornhill were sent to the town to restore order and apprehend Cronje and his ringleaders. Arriving at Potchefstroom, Wins- loe selected the site for a camp outside the town on open rising ground. After a few skirmishes in the town Maj Clarke surrendered on 18 Decem- ber 1880 but Winsloe, although in a state of siege, decided to continue the fight. He held out until 21 March 1881 when he surrendered conditionally to Cronje. During the siege he was wounded. Winsloe, at one time aide-de-camp to the Queen, also took part in the Burmese Expedition (1886-87) in which he commanded the relief force at Thabyabin. He retired in January 1887.”

I am a fan history. I was on the local online marketplace in Alberta Canada and seen an old trunk listed. For interest sake I did some research and figured out who the owner was. Since this form thread might be contain the only people who know of Colonel Winslow might be I thought I would share. "Captain Winsloe 21st fusilliers" .
