Hi littlehand

Lord St Vincent
Lord St. Vincent served in the Zulu War of 1879 as Orderly Officer to Major General Marshall, and was present with the 17th Lancers in the engagements at Zuinguin Mountain and Ulundi (Medal with Clasp). Served as Orderly Officer to Brigadier General C.M. MacGregor in the expedition against the Marress in Sothern Afghanistan in 1880 (mentioned in despatches, Medal). Served in the Boer war of 1881 as Adjutant of Barrow's Mounted Infantry. Served in the Egyptian war of 1882 as Aide de Camp to Major General Drury Lowe, Commanding the Cavalry Division, and was present at the battle of Tel-el-Kebir and the capture of Cairo (mentioned in despatches, Medal with Clasp, 4th Class of the Medjidie, and Khedive's Star).

1879Graves this on Lord St Vincent. I still trying to find something on Cunningham.

The fourth Viscent. St. Vincent, late owner of this lordship, young as he was, had seen considerable service. Although only 34 years of age at the time of his death, he had taken part in no less than five campaigns. In the Zulu War in 1879; in the Afghan War, the following year; in the Transvaal of 1881 ; in the Egyptian campaign of 1882; and, lastly, at Abu-Klea in the Soudan, where he received his death wound. The following iiiciitorandniit, intended as a Codicil to his Will, derives a peculiar signihcancy from the circumstances under which it was written, being made by the deceased after he was wounded, and found written in pencil on a leaf of his pocket book, in the form of a letter,


as follows : — Dear Mother, — In the extent of my dying under the operation about to be performed, I should like Privates Teaffy Hosmar, and Knight, to have an annuity of ^15 each. I should like a tablet put in Norton Church, with a short description from
' Army List,' or elsewhere, of my military life.
Your affectionate Son,

To Lady St. Vincent. St. Vincent.

Sounds strange, he transfers into the 17th in 1880, that being so he wouldnt have served in the Zulu wars. It was all over by then.
Just a thought.

Hi all

The article appeared 20 years after the Zulu War and they could have got the date of 1880 incorrect?
Major C Robert Gum Cunningham came from the 16th Lancers ? As you can see from the 1877 Army list the above Cunningham is not listed but a Douglas Alexander Graham Cunningham Graham is listed.
As the article stated that Lord St Vincent died in his arms, I wondered if anyone had heard of a Major Cunningham in 1885?

[You must be registered and logged in to see this image.]

I have checked the Army list for the 17th Lancers for 1884 and cannot find him here? Suspect

As the Judge says in the article "if the statements contained therein were true", well I do not believe that they are !!! Idea
