Hi All 

This article by the Adjutant of the regiment at the time:

I feel sure that all those who have the pleasure of knowing Gonville Bromhead must feel delighted at his success- a success so nobly deserved. I was with him for some time at an army tutors at Croydon some twelve years ago, and it is interesting to look back upon him as he appeared to us at that time.
About 5 feet 10 inches in height, so well built that he didn't look as tall, he seemed to me to be quite the beau-ideal of an English officer. It was our custom of an evening, as soon as study was over, to indulge in bouts of wrestling, boxing and Single stick in the gymnasium outside; and Bromhead was so expert in all of these that he invariably beat everyone opposed to him.
With all this he was so kind and gentile that the youngsters among us could chaff him and play tricks upon him with impunity, and without fear of retaliation.
Quiet and most Unassuming in his demeanor, he nevertheless often showed by friendliness to those who happened to be unpopular, by kindness to new comers, and in a thousand of ways, the thorough worth and goodness that were in him.
It is to be hoped that the lonely fight out at Rorkes Drift may only prove to have been the means of bringing him to the front, in order that by his future services he may prove still more useful to his country.

The Aberdare Times 1 March 1879.
