Hi 24th

Sir BCP who started the Devon Connection thread was using the following
I am researching the Devon connections with the 1879 Anglo Zulu War. Re the People, directly or indirectly involved, I am using Born, Died or Buried in Devon, to qualify as a Devon connection.

So I would say yes he should be added to the Devon Connection list.
