Hi All

Does anyone know who Gonville Bromhead's groom was?

Was the groom at RD, Isandlwana or with the Good Lord C?

Any help would be great

Graves received this from David Payne. (He having a few problems logging on.

Quote :
"The groom was a Pte Keall of the 2/24 - as a matter of interest the groom fell off Bromhead’s horse on the march to Ulundi and broke his arm. I have all of his papers at home and if any more info is required I will dig it out."

Hi All

Many thanks for the information, I just needed someone to confirm his name and it was the same one I had.

David
"the groom fell off Bromhead’s horse on the march to Ulundi and broke his arm", Could you please tell me the source of this information? as I have William Keall breaking his arm after Ulundi scratch

I still have one question, Was the William Keall at RD, Isandlwana or with the Good Lord C?

hi all.
I think Keal wasnt Gonny's groom till after the 22nd Jan , that would explain why he isnt mentioned at R.D and also not
mentioned as a survivor of Isandlwana . More than likely he was out with the Good Lord exploring the Hills .
cheers 90th.

"As a Lt would he have qualified for a groom – maybe this happened upon his promotion to Major – I have looked through the paperwork I hold which is mainly his medical records and I cannot find out when he was allocated to Bromhead. What I have found out is that he did not break his right arm until the 4th August 1879 – this was one month after Ulundi. He was discharged from the army in April 18 Idea 80 having completed over 15 years – he appeared in the defaulters book twice during this period. Some of his service was in Rangoon and the Cape of Good Hope."

Sorry I have no further info at this point but I will continue to search.
From David Payne.
