Lieutenant John Chard: What's our strength? Lieutenant Gonville Bromhead: Seven officers including surgeon, commissaries and so on; Adendorff now I suppose; wounded and sick 36, fit for duty 97 and about 40 native levies. Not much of an army for you.

Kate,

Doesn’t say he served in the campaign only he was there at the time.

I conclude from the report his volunteer service was local to Huddersfield, possibly in one of the West Riding volunteer corps.

Thanks John
I just put 'Colonial Volunteer?' in the title field to make it easier to search in case he crops up in any AZW correspondance in the future.

Hi All,
A bit more on the Staff Clerk, he was discharged at Dover aged 47 in1902 intended residence Brixton.
On 1911 census James and Ethel are living at Effra Road Brixton with 4 kids, first born Netley, the other three all in Dover. I expect james died in 1940 and registered in Camberwell district. He is buried with ethel, in Lambeth Cem Con/D.3/ 139.
