Lieutenant George Astell Pardoe, who died in General Newdigate’s camp on the Mhlatuze River, on 14 July 1879, of wounds received at the battle of Ulundi, was the second son of Edward Pardoe, Esq., of Amberwood, Christchurch, Hampshire, formerly Captain 15th and 82nd Regiments, and his wife Harriet, daughter of William Astell, Esquire, M.P., of Everton, Bedfordshire. He was born on 5 September 1855, at Brighton and was educated at Cowes, Isle of Wight, under the Rev. Arthur Watson, MA, and at Eton. He passed the competitive examination for entrance to the Royal Military College at Sandhurst, on 11th February 1875, taking a high place, and obtaining his commission, at the same date, on the unattached list. After a year spent at Sandhurst he was gazetted to the 13th Light Infantry, and in May 1876, joined the 1st Battalion of that regiment in South Africa. Lieutenant Pardoe carried the colours of the 13th Light Infantry at Pretoria, when the reading of the Queen’s proclamation on the annexation of the Transvaal took place. Soon afterwards he was invalided home in consequence of a dangerous illness, but rejoined his regiment in South Africa before the commencement of the campaign against Sekhukhune in 1878, in which it served, and in which he twice narrowly escaped being shot in the bush.
Lieutenant Pardoe was with Colonel Evelyn Wood’s column throughout the whole of its operations on the Transvaal frontier, and during its subsequent advance into Zululand. At the very commencement of the battle of Ulundi, he was shot in both thighs. Though most skilfully and tenderly treated and nursed both by the surgeons and his brother officers, haemorrhage recommended at the end of ten days, and amputation of the left leg became the only possible means of saving his life. The shock was, however, too great for his system: he never rallied afterwards, but died on his way to the base hospital at Utrecht. His body was carried to Fort Marshall, and was there buried on the day after his death. By the thoughtful kindness of those in command at the time, a cairn and wall of rough stones protect his grave; a cross has since been erected on the spot by his brother officers to his memory. His character cannot be better described than by quoting from a letter written by one of them: - “A more honourable, high-minded, generous young fellow did not exist: he was a favourite with everyone, from the Colonel down to the youngest bugler.” A mural tablet that has been placed in Highcliffe Church, near Christchurch, by friends in the neighbourhood, also testifies to the estimation in which he was held, and to the sorrow caused by his early death.
Descended from an Essex family, Lieutenant Pardoe is the third of his name who during the present century has died on active service. In 1810, George Pardoe, Royal Navy, fell in an engagement off Palamos on the Spanish main, and in 1814 his brother, Ensign Edward Pardoe, Grenadier Guards, was severely wounded at the siege of Bergen-op-Zoom, and in the following year killed at the battle of Waterloo.
Lieutenant Pardoe is also commemorated on the ‘South Africa 1879-80-81’ memorial in the Sandhurst Chapel.

PostSubject: LT. PARDOE.   George Astell Pardoe Lieutentant, 13th Light Infantry EmptyTue Jul 07, 2009 2:51 pm

HI ALL.

as we have a picture of his grave thought i would share this , as gruesome as it may seem to some readers, this from the
SURGICAL EXPERIENCES IN THE ZULU AND TRANSVAAL WARS 1879 AND 1881. by DUGALD BLAIR BROWN.

LT PARDOE of the 13TH LIGHT INFANTRY, was hit in the engagement at ULUNDI, and i saw him almost immediately afterwards.
The bullet entered the right thigh about its middle passing through a direct line without injuring vessel or bone, and entered the thigh of the opposite limb about its upper third, causing severe comminution of the femur, and then escaped on the other side. The wound in the right thigh healed, without a drop of pus coming from it in a few days. The wounds were small, clean, and round and no difference was perceptible between the entrance or exit. Those in the left thigh were different , the wound of entrance being twice the size of that of the other limb, and that of the exit being large, deep, and gaping and there was considerable haemorrhage present. I put the limb up in a long splint at the time, and immediately after the battle i wished to remove the limb. This was not agreed to, and i lost sight of him for 2 days. When seen then his leg was still in the splint i had put on, but the case had become more complicated. A considerable tumour, pulsating strongly , occupied SCARPA"S SPACE. Ten days later the wound began to bleed alarmlingly and all efforts failed to check it. The limb was then amputated - i assisting - but the patient died on the table. The following was the condition of the limb i found on making an examination afterwards. The whole of the femur, except a few inches near the TROCHANTERS and CONDYLES ,
was fractured, and existed only in fragments, large ,loose, sharp edged and pointed pieces. The MEDULLARY CANAL was full of fungoid mass smelling most foully, and all the fragments of bone were quite destitute of living covering. An inch below where the PROFUNDA BRANCH is given off by the FEMORAL the main artery was cut half through, evidently by one of the sharp fragments of the FEMUR , and a long dark clot wes hanging from it. The tissues immediately in this area were in a softened condition, the abductors
and vastus muscles being pulpified and seperated from one another, and the space filled with blood-clot.

it is very technical, but im glad it wasnt me !!.
cheers 90th.

time to hit the sack, late nights coming up with the ashes wed.
