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.

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?
