Major Bob Long, DL, an enthusiastic cricketer and veteran of the Zulu War and the Great War. In 1893 he was awarded the medal of St. John of Jerusalem by the future Edward VII for stopping a runaway coach and four from ploughing into a gathering of civilians.

Hi Chelmsfordthescapegoat

I am unable to find a Major Bob Long listed on the Medal Roll.

But I have found a 1106 Private R. Long, 99th Regiment of Foot. As your source states "The Longs were an ancient Wiltshire family" this could be your man.
