Lord Chelmsford Said .Buller is ‘one of the finest soldiers of the century’, so modest and reticent –that it was difficult to say for what individual deed he had got the Victoria Cross as he had been doing acts worthy of it all along the line

Probably not an AZW connection here (but there was a Wodehouse at Ulundi). Most seem to be wearing the Egypt medal with Khedives Star - the rather portly sergeant centre left has an earlier award, possibly AZW?

Hi Steve
Lt J.H.Wodehouse 6th Bgde N Bty under the Command of Maj Le Grice , different initials to the chap in the pic . Wonder if he's a relation , I doubt Wodehouse would've been a common name ? .

Gary,

Common enough if you were a Royal Artillery officer this is from the 1879 Hart’s:

The Wodehouse mentioned on Steve’s photograph is Edwin Frederick, commissioned in 1870.

Josceline Heneage Wodehouse was commissioned in 1872.

That should prove very interesting , the Major hasn't mentioned it , maybe he's hoping it won't happen ! . Hope he's not to tuckered out for his lunch/ dinner date ! . I'm thinking the trail will be Tick City soon , if not now , I wouldn't want to be doing the trail at this time , I know he copped them badly last Dec while trying to find Macleroy's Grave , much better and easier to go in Winter .
