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

Lieutenant H.C.Young . He wrote a fraudulent report of his escape in ' The Echo ', 24th Feb 1879 , which was reproduced in at least one British Newspaper, and an extract from which was used in Mackinnon and Shadbolt ( Although in it he is referred to as Capt. Young . ) In fact he went on sick leave from the 3rd Regt, NNC, on the 21st Jan 79. He was seen in Sandspruit, Natal that same afternoon . His fictitious story was exposed by Lieut. Higginson, in a letter to the Natal Mercury, 16th May 79. This man is not to be confused with his brother, Lieut. L.D. Young, also of the 3rd Regt NNC. Who was killed in action at Isandlwana.

Great stuff... I'm looking at the copy of Higginson's Natal Mercury letter and I'm not seeing any reference to Young, directly.

Saul
The link has a misspelling of the name. It is Lonsdale Dunoon Young.

Dear 1879Graves
The verbatim quotation from England's sons 8th ed.p. 22 which you used to open the thread is updated in the 9th ed. to:
"1 Lieut. H. C. Young
Heydon Charles Young’s fraudulent report of escape appeared in The Echo, 24th February 1879 and in at least one British (Leicester Mercury, 1st March 1879) and several New Zealand and Australian papers. An extract was used in Mackinnon and Shadbolt (in which he is named “Captain Young”);1 its content was quoted as if genuine in a 2011 popular history.2 See also the Birmingham Daily Post 1.3.1879. In fact he went on sick leave from the 3rd Regt., N.N.C. on 21st January 1879 and was seen in Sand Spruit, Natal that same afternoon. His fictitious story was exposed by his adjutant, Lieut. Higginson, in a letter (Natal Mercury, 16th May 1879). This man is not to be confused with his brother, Lieut. Lonsdale Dunoon Young, also of the 3rd Regt., N.N.C. who was killed in action at Isandhlwana (see H, fn. d)."
