1879Graves. Spend sometime on this chap. Can't find anything. Only what the others have found. What was your source.

He looks similar to Dunn.

Your man is Robert St. Leger Attwell, born 11 Feb 1849, Victoria East, Cape Colony, South Africa; died 1907, Benoni, Transvaal, South Africa.

I found a snippet of a book "From Manifesto to Trial", on Google Books, with the following:

"Robert St. Leger Attwell was next called. The State Attorney : ... Attwell, are you, or were you, Colonel of the Africander Brigade '. Witness : I do not remember being Colonel of any corpis of that name. Well, any other corps ? ..."

That's all I could read. I don't have access to the actual book. Maybe someone out there is familiar with the book. I think it had something to do with Jameson's Raid.

I didn't see anything about the Zulu War.

Good Luck

Petty Officer Tom

I wonder what he was trying to hide.
