"LEWIS WILLIAM REYNOLDS (1856-1935). M.R.C.S. (Eng.), L.S.A., M.R.C.P. (Lond.), J.P. [Epsom College 1870-1872] was the
son of William Reynolds, surgeon of Wellington, Somerset, and brother of Arthur Henry Reynolds [Epsom College 1874-
1877], Charles Edward Reynolds [Epsom College 1874-1878], Ernest Reynolds [Epsom College 1876- 1879], and
Lieutenant-Colonel Eric William Reynolds [Epsom College 1900-1902]. He received his medical education at Guy’s Hospital
and after qualification served as a Civil Surgeon, A.M.D. in South Africa (1878-1879), taking part in the Battle of Ulundi, for
which he was awarded the South Africa Medal and Clasp. After the South African War he was appointed Medical Officer
of Health for High Wycombe, and Surgeon at High Wycombe General Hospital. He also served as a J.P. for the County of
Buckinghamshire. During his time in South Africa Lewis Reynolds kept a detailed record of his experiences and the events
taking place around him. His diaries were published in 2002, under the title A Civil Surgeon – Serving with the British Army
in the Anglo-Zulu War. His narrative makes interesting reading. At the conclusion of the Battle of Ulundi he writes: “After
this we advanced and burnt Ulundi & also 6 or 7 large military kraals, and then returned to our camp on Umvolosi River. 2
volunteers who were killed yesterday were buried. Beresford was the first into Ulundi, galloping up with three others &
jumping the fence, hat in hand. The column returned in great spirit, bands playing – colours flying, kraals burning all
around…..20,000 Zulus are supposed to have been in action, having against them about 4,000 European".

Obituary
J. H. REYNOLDS, V.C., LL.D.
Lieut.-Colonel R.A.M.C.(ret.)
Lieut.-Colonel James Henry Reynolds, V.C., died on
March 4th, aged 88. He was born on February 3rd,
1844, the second son of Laurence Reynolds, J.P., of
Dalyston House, County Longford, and was educated
at Castle Knock and at Trinity College, Dublin, where
he graduated M.B. and Ch.B. in 1867. He entered
the Army as assistant surgeon in 1868, and was posted
to the 36th Foot, now the 2nd Battalion of the Worcestershire
Regiment. He became surgeon in 1873, on the
abolition of the rank of assistant surgeon, and surgeon
major in 1879, by a special promotion for his services
at Rorke's Drift. He was then, however, only one year
short of promotion by length of service in the ordinary
course. He became brigade surgeon lieutenant-colonel in
December, 1892, and retired in January, 1896. After his
retirement he was employed for some time in medical
charge of the Royal Army Clothing Factory at Pimlico.
He served in South Africa in the Griqualand expedition
of 1875; in the Kaffir war of 1877-78, taking part in the
action with the Galekas at Impetu, and in the Zulu war
of 1879, when he was one of the three officers in the
fort at Rorke's Drift, which withstood the attack of the
Zulu army after the annihilation of a British force,
chiefly consisting of the 24th Foot, the South Wales
Borderers, at Isandhlwana, and saved the colony of Natal
from invasion by the rush of the triumphant army of
Zulus under King Cetewayo. I'he other two officers were
Lie-utenant Chard, R.E., and Lieutenant Bromhead, 24th
Foot; all three got the V.C. He was also present at the
battle of Ulundi, where the Zulu army was completely
defeated and the Zulu kingdom brought to an end. He
was mentioned in dispatches in the London Gazette of
March 15th, 1879, and received the medal with a clasp,
as well as the V.C. He was also given the LL.D. by
Trinity College, Dublin, the Honorary Fellowship of the
Royal College of Physicians, Ireland; and the Gold
Medal of the British Medical Association. His V.C. was
gazetted in June, 1879, as follows:
"For the conspicuous bravery during the attack at Rorke's
Drift on January 22nd and 23rd, 1879, which he exhibited in
his constant attention to the wounded under fire, and in his
voluntarily conveying ammunition from the store to the
defenders of the hospital, whereby he exposed himnself to
a cross-fire from the enemy both in going and. returning."
Colonel. Reynolds was one of the three oldest V.C.s who
attended the dinner in the Royal Gallery of the House
of Lords, at which the Prince of Wales presided, on
November 9th, 1929. In 1880 he married Elizabeth,
daughter of Dr. M'Cormick.


Mr. WALTER G. SPENCER writes:
Whilst Colonel Reynolds was in charge of the Pimlico
Clothing Department he frequently sent workers to
Westninster Hospital for treatment and, later, he
came to me about his health, the last time at the
beginning of 1929. Then a cancer, for which a grave
operation would previously have been called for, disappeared
in about ten days under radium. Colonel
Reynolds was thus able to walk at the head of the
V.C.s at the Thanksgiving Ceremony, and to be present
at the dinner in the House of Lords. Our conversations
often returned to Rorke's Drift, and from notes I jotted
down I have picked out a few of his reminiscences which
I have not noticed in print. There were thirty-six patients
in hospital, most in different stages of typhoid fever. No
preparations had been made for the defence of the station.
Reynolds was senior officer, having been already six
years in South Africa; Bromhead and Chard were young
subalterns just out from England; Dalton, an army noncommissioned
officer, who had rejoined, had had experience
in the methods of defence employed by the Boers.
When fugitives from Isandhlwana reached Rorke's Drift,
it was first proposed to evacuate the place, but Reynolds
declared that to be impossible. Even if the convoy could
cross the river the ascent of the opposite bank was so
long and steep that the Zulus would certainly catch it
up. It was Dalton who arranged the defence with mealie
bags. When the Zulus came into view there appeared
horsemen in scarlet, and the cry was that the cavalry were
returning; but Reynolds pointed out that the riders
were not rising in their saddles, but sat the horses as did
the natives. Coming nearer, the Zulu impi drew up, and
ceremoniously took snuff, heralding a charge to the uttermost.
A few Zulus got into the garden and into the
hospital before two patients in bed could be got within
the laager; a third lost his head, took a wrong turning,
and was also killed. The remaining thirty-three cases were
saved, and survived the subsequent stench.
