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

Did all these people actually see Durnford arrive. Or could it be they were out out doing whatever, and on returning to camp saw Durnford therefrom recording the times they saw him? Just a thought.

They all mention that Colonel Durnford/Colonel Durnfords forces/ Colonel Durnfords Column arrived at such and such a time.
I specifically mentioned the last three on the list as being from the rocket battery as their quoted times are out by at least 30 minutes, the Rocket Battery arrived after Durnford.
Im also sure that Wilson /Dillon and Williams also make mention of him arriving. So yes a hell of a lot of testimony and mostly around the 10/11 oclock period.
Cheers

John/impi
Pvt Wilson was incorrectly identified as Private E Dillon and his original statement was attributed that way. He was 1/24th Band Member
