There is no doubt it - Staff Surgeon Longfield was a tough man.  After being shot with a large caliber bullet on April 2nd at Gingindlovo he was tended to in the camp at Gingindlovo until April 8.  He was then put in an ox drawn wagon and taken down to the Lower Tugela - a trip which took 19 hours.  Initially thought that he might lose the arm he began to slowly recover.  On May 25 he was reported to be doing well.  June 12 Staff Surgeon Norbury reported that Longfield had been transferred to Durban convalescence.  Longfield remained in Durban until July 11 when he boarded the Troopship Euphrates for passage to the naval station at Simon's Bay where he remained until August 9 when was taken aboard the corvette HMS Juno.  The following day the "Juno" departed Simon's Bay bound for Ascension Island and England, arriving at Plymouth on August 10 and Portsmouth the next day.
