No, it was not him, Frank, he was No. 3 Column. The man I'm after survived the war and was still alive a year later (at least). I can't find any career mention in Mac & Shad.
Can I still call you Frank now that you're a media celebrity? Or do I have to go through your agent?

For some reason I have Surgeon Ash, with a large question mark attached, in my notes.

Ash was the surgeon with the I.M.I.
I'll try and check Cartwright Reed somewhere.

Hi
Just trying to see if I can fish for some information on Buee as this is the only mention I can find of him. He features in my family free an the only into I had from my uncle was that he died in the Zulu War. I have tied him down to being confirmed killed at Isandlwana. Frank William Buee. I have found 3 references to him by name. He is referred to as Acting Surgeon and also Assistant Surgeon. It seems he was 1st bt, 3rd NNC but left behind in camp.

Luke ...this from Julian Whybra's England's Sons . Natal Native Contingent 1 / 3rd Bttn . Officers KIA .. Lieut & Acting Surgeon Francis Wm Buee ( Sometimes mistranscribed as Bull or Bruce in the Official Lists ) .
The following from Terry Sole's ' For God , Queen & Colony ' ... Brice , Frank William ; Act Surgeon , KIA Isandlwana ; Ever since the correspondent Norris - Newman wrote the following Brice has been referred to as Buee.... '' Young Bruee , the assistant Surgeon , started with us , but his pony went so lame that he was obliged to go back ; as it turned out afterwards , for he , too , was fated never to leave the camp alive again '' . Young Brice has besides being called Buee also been referred to as Bull .
Hope this is of some help ?

Hi
Thank you. I have seen the Norris-Newman extract and assumed this referred to Frank William Buee. You are saying that the "young Buee" is in fact assistant surgeon Brice?
One would assume acting Surgeon Frank Buee stayed at camp with the hospital tents?

I'm afraid Sole made an error here. The correct surname was in fact Buee.
