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 .
