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.

No mention of a Regiment or travelling out with the army. Could he have gone out as a private individual and joined one of the Colonial Units?

Good evening. George Herbert Davies was my great grandfather. He is buried in the old West Str. cemetery in Durban. In reply to your question. I know nothing about him serving in the Anglo Boer War. He was a Forestry Officer and then a farmer in the Ixopo district, KZN.

The article states he may have taken part in the Zulu war, not the Anglo Boer war.
