Born 1849. Proceeded to the Cape March 1879 in charge of drafts. Took part in advance of Newdigate's divison. Acted as orderly officer at battle of Ulundi at which he was slightly wounded.
Bechuanaland Expedition, 1884-1885. Married Honourable Jane Charlotte Methuen,daughter of 2nd Baron Methuen.

Didn't know he was struck by lightning though in the AZW and lost the use of both of his legs Suspect

Started the WI in the Welsh place with the long name and is responsible for more scones than Greggs

Birmingham Daily Post - Thursday 20 May 1965

Mentioned in depatches. The London Gazette, Publication date:21 August 1879 Issue:24754 Page:5106
"Major Gosset, 54th Regiment, Assistant Quartermaster - General,Lieutenant-Colonel Montgomery, Scots Guards,Deputy - Assistant Quartermaster - General, and Captain Sir W. Gordon Gumming, my Extra Aide-de-Camp, all worked hard, and were present during the action. Captain the Honourable S.Cotton, Scots Guards, not being required for transport duties, acted as my orderly officer during the engagement."

Interestingly in this report it said that each man in the square at Ulundi fired on average 6.4 rounds. Might open another thread with those details.
