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

25B/838 Pte William Mason 2nd Battalion 24th Regiment who is buried at Aberfan Cemetery near Merthyr Tydfil please? It's believed he was out with Lord Chelmsford during the attack on Isandlwana, rather than present at the battle as alluded to in his obituary, below:

"On Friday the funeral of Mr. William Mason 23, Carlton Terrace, took place. Deceased was Troedyrhiw’s oldest soldier, and during his time with the Colours he saw considerable service. One of the old 24th S.W.B. (nick-named the “Irish Greens”), who are memorable for their stand against the Zulus in the South African War 0f 1878-79. He was present at the disaster of Isandlwana, when they were surrounded by the enemy and out of the battalion only nine survived to stand again in a hundred to hold Rorke’s Drift. He held a bar and medal. He was also the possessor of medals for active service in India and the Sudan. The remains were interred at Aberfan Cemetery, Rev. H. P. Jones of Merthyr Vale officiating. The principal mourners were William, David, Harold and Edward (sons); Mr. David Jones, Bedlinog (son-in-law); Mr. William Clark (brother-in-law); Messrs. J. Summers, Swansea, T. Chambers, Cwmbach, C Farrell, W. Clark, T. Rolls, T. Lloyd, W. Ward, T. A. Lloyd (nephews); William Mason (grandson). The Troedyrhiw ex-servicemen provided the bearers, viz., Messrs. W. Charles, Alf Baker, R. Ellis, D. Thomas, J. Peters and D. Lewis. Floral tributes were sent by the children, Dai and Win, Mr and Mrs. Summers, Swansea, Mr. J. Mason, Bargoed and the ex-servicemen."
