A Bronkhorstspruit casualty

"DEATH OF AN EX-POSTMAN.—The death occurred recently at Banbury, where he had been living, of Mr. Frederick George Briggs, at the age of 69. The interment took place at Hook Norton Monday, January 23. Mr. Briggs will be remembered by some of our older readers as formerly serving as postman at Chipping Norton. After a short time at. Great Rollright, he went to reside at Hook Norton, where he was well known and respected. He was an old soldier and was born in barracks in India, joining the Army as a drummer boy at a very early age. He served in the Zulu War, and also in the Great War."

Oxfordshire Weekly News - Wednesday 01 February 1922

Enjoyed tracking this chap down and it was worth it.

Frederick George Briggs who was born in Jallunder in the East Indies, enlisted on the 9.5.1864 and spent 3 years and 10 months in India.
He sustained a gunshot wound to the back of his head at Bronkhurst spruit in SA in 1880 which invalided him out of the army on the 23 8 1881. He held the SA medal and spent 2 years and 4 months in SA.
He only had 5 teeth which were of little use

There is a service number on his Terratorial record of 4592 but this is crossed out and 22864 has been written above. He lists his previous service as a sergeant in the 2nd battalion Connaught Rangers.
His wife was Louise Anne Briggs
Later his medical record said he had a gunshot wound in the back of his left knee with a scar
