From Cam
Hi Frank, good to hear from you. I'm still stuck in Morocco with no prospect to return until the air space opens up.

I think that over time, Ashby has the name wrong as their was no officer called Palmer.

Ferreira's Troop was, as you said not at Hblobane so it cannot be Cpl Palmer. There was a Deputy Commissary General C. Palmer but it's a stretch. I come back to the original point that I think Ashby has the name wrong. There was a Lieutenant Walter Parkin in Bakers Horse but I'm not sure if he was at Hlobane.

Cam.

I think we can very safely disregard it being Deputy Commissary General Charles Palmer of the Commissariat & Transport Department.  Born on 6th April 1827, Palmer was first commissioned in January 1845, he had previously served in 8th Cape Frontier War and the Crimea.

He arrived in Pietermaritzburg in February 1879, where he was placed in charge of the accounts and returns.  He was for short while in charge of the Commissariat Department, before he ...was attacked with paralysis, and invalided.

I still wonder whether some of Ferreira's Horse could have been sent out with the Border Horse or FLH as they were all in Wood's column serving under Buller according to SA Military History Society. Still I suppose we'll never know!

Sub Lieutenant Parminter was killed but Major WG Parminter was described by Lieutenent William Tomasson as:"the last man to leave and his deeds were worth a VC."

William Parminter was born in Stuttgart and was prominent as the commander of Baker's Horse in the Anglo-Zulu War of 1879. He acted very bravely at the terrible descent of Devil's Pass on Hlobane Mountain and according to one eye-witness was the last to leave the mountain after rescuing men. Described as 'A very gallant gentleman of the very best English type.' and worthy of winning the VC. He fought again at Ulundi, and after the war, in 1884 he accompanied the explorer H M Stanley on his expedition in the Congo. He was married with a son, Reginald, who was born in 1893, a year before William died. He was 43 years old when he died in Nice in Jan 1894.

Frank,

I appreciate Cam is away from his books, the KIA was a Sub-Lieutenant Horace Walter Parminter, Weatherley’s Border Lancers (or Horse), the survivor was Captain William George Parminter was from Baker’s Horse, rather than them both being members of Baker’s Horse.

His comments are interesting though, were both Parminters related?  Cam mentions Stuttgart for William, and Charles Newman writes that Horace was from Statgarelt?  I can’t find a place called Statgarlelt, so I wonder if it is a typographical error and should read Stuttgart?

The other interesting point is that of William George Parminter accompanying H. M. Stanley on an expedition.  On one of his later expeditions, the Emin Pasha Relief Expedition, Stanley was accompanied by another former member of Baker’s Horse - Captain Robert Henry Nelson.  At least one other ZW veteran, former Private William Bonny, of the Army Hospital Corps, was also part of that expedition.

Michael,

Just to correct your very last entry.

There was nothing 'Acting' about Assistant Commissary Robert (Bobby) Alexander Chermside. He was a regular officer, the son of Major-General Henry Lowther Chermside, C.B.

Chermside was commissioned as an Ensign into the 63rd (West Suffolk) Regiment on 8th July 1868 from the Royal Military College, Sandhurst.  However, his stay with the 63rd was very short-lived as on the following day, 9th July 1868 he transferred to the 88th (Connaught Rangers) Regiment.

He transferred to the then Control Department as an Assistant-Commissary on 1st September 1870.

[You must be registered and logged in to see this image.]
Genteman Cadet Robert Alexander Chermside, Royal Military College, circa 1867.
(John Young Collection.)

Mr. Young,

Great CDV, never seen that one before!!! I appreciate the correction on his rank. Frankly I have had little luck tracing Chermside outside of Hart's. Doesn't seem to have left much.

Best,

I can add ten 'provenanced' Europeans to that total and discount one of the uncertains.
And then of course there's the Africans...
I am hoping that the very latest improved and updated edition of England's Sons will be available at the end of this month (lockdown restrictions permitting).
