Lord Chelmsford Said .Buller is ‘one of the finest soldiers of the century’, so modest and reticent –that it was difficult to say for what individual deed he had got the Victoria Cross as he had been doing acts worthy of it all along the line

Hi Mr. Greaves.
This from ' Rorkes Drift By Those Who Were There ' by Jones & Stevenson.
Page 26 From Chard's Reort ...... ' It is impossible for one individual to see all , but I particularly myself noticed the behavior
of Col Sgt Bourne , Sgt Williams 24th , Cpl Scheiss NNC , Cpl Lyons 24th , Pvt Mcmahon AHC , Pvt's Roy , Deacon .Bush ,
Cole , Jenkins 24th and many others ' .

Page 64 . Hitch's Report ......'' There was a certain space of about 9 yds where the barricading was uncompleted. It was , of coarse,
the weakest link in the chain , and the zulus were not long in discovering this fact. In this position 8 of us , Bromhead , Nicholls ,
Fagan , Cole , Dalton , Schiess, Williams and myself made a stand , and it was here, I think , the hardest work was done.

page 65.
Hitch goes on describing the conflict and then says .. '' Rush after Rush had been repelled, of the 8 who held the unbarricaded
position only 2 of us were left , Lt. Bromhead and myself . Nicholls , Fagan and Cole were killed , whilst Dalton and Williams were
wounded.
Page 192 . A letter written by Revd George Smith , '' Whilst all behaved so gallantly , it was hardly possible to notice other exceptional instances , although all their comrades bore testimony to such in the conduct of Col Sgt Bourne , Sgt Williams ,
wounded dangerously since dead , Sgt Windridge , Pvt's Mcmahon and Roy.

Page 278 . Casualty Reports 2 / 24th Sgt. T. Williams , Dangerously wounded - Gunshot left side of chest fracturing ribs . Bullet not Lodged .
Page 279. Extract from an unidentified Natal Newspaper c. Jan 79.

2 / 24th Sgt Williams . T. . Dangerously wounded - Bullet Breaking Ribs , No serious injury to Lung .
cheers 90th.
