Lieutenant John Chard: What's our strength? Lieutenant Gonville Bromhead: Seven officers including surgeon, commissaries and so on; Adendorff now I suppose; wounded and sick 36, fit for duty 97 and about 40 native levies. Not much of an army for you.

Commissary Edward William Henry Webb, C.B.,
Commissariat & Transport Department.
(John Young Collection.)

An engraving of Webb as it appeared in The Illustrated London News of 27th December 1879.
[You must be registered and logged in to see this image.]

The accompanying text from the same issue:
[You must be registered and logged in to see this image.]

Burke’s Peerage of 1881 records in the Military Section of the Companions of the Order of the Bath that Webb received his award for his services in the Zulu War of 1879.

Now here’s the rub, a check on his clasp entitlement records only 1877-8.

Keith Smith in his Local Orders... refers to a document dated 19th November 1878 that Webb received permission to return to England to convalesce his health.  So almost a month prior to the Ultimatum Webb was due to depart the Colony of Natal.  So was his C.B. a reward for his advanced planning for what was then undeclared, unsanctioned war?

Well, I suppose we don't know exactly when he did return to England to convalesce...it might have been as late as December 1878.
We do know that the planning for the conflict began quite early - as early as September - just in case it came to war. And of course there were operations against Sekhukhune and his ilk in 1978. All in all, the establishment of military bases/depots on the approach roads to the border makes sense.
I wouldn't like to use this as the basis of an essay suggesting the whole war was pre-planned and inevitable.

His service record would reveal the date of departure.
