Love this image of old Buller. Like a Zulu war Rooster Cogburn Salute

"HOW BULLER WON THE V.C. "You may be interested in something have written." said the General to the Colonel. "Some nonsense, I suppose," said the Colonel to the General. That is the story of how General Redvers Buller. then Colonel-Commanding the Frontier Light Horse during the Zulu War, received the news , that he had been recommended for the Victoria Cross by General Sir Evelyn Wood. It is one of the bast anecdotes in " The Life of Sir Redvers Buller." by Colonel G. E. Melville (states the " Daily Express "). Buller received the V.C. for his conspicuous gallantry in fighting the Zulus, and General Evelyn Wood, afterwards the famous Field-Marshal under whom Buller served,  declared that he deserved the decoration every time he went into action.
He fought like a demon.

"Lending his men at a swinging canter with his reins in his teeth, revolver in one hand. and a knobkerrie he had snatched from a Zulu in the other, his hat blown off in the melee and a large streak of blood  across his face this gallant horseman seemed a demon incarnate to the flying savage.. who slunk out of his path as if he had been—as. indeed. they thought he was— an evil spirit whose look was death."

The whole of the second volume of the life is gives over to the South African nthpaign. and the author is persistent in his defence of Buller in all that he did. The suggestion that the General was intemperate is hotly refuted."
