The last hours of the fatally wounded. (Don't like the sound of that) Still it must have brought comfort to them, before they departed.

"Col Sir Charles Wyndham Murray KCB GCStJ (22 February 1844[1] – 1 November 1928) was a British Army officer and politician. He served as a Conservative Member of Parliament MP for Bath from 1892–1906 and as Gentleman Usher of the Scarlet Rod in the Order of the Bath from 1913 until his death.

Early life and education
Charles Wyndham Murray was born on 22 February 1844, the son of Rev Thomas Boyles Murray and Helen Douglas, and was educated at Marlborough College.
Rev Murray served as Prebendary of St Paul's Cathedral and is remembered there by a pair of candle holders at the main entrance which were given by Sir Murray in memory of his father.

He began his military career as an Ensign in the 61st South Gloucestershire Regiment in November 1862, promoted to Lieutenant in October 1865 and passed from Staff College in 1872. By October 1877 he was a Captain and in July 1881, a Major. During World War I, he served as military King's Messenger in France.
In 1875, he was appointed Deputy-Assistant Quartermaster-General in Cork, and then moved to the Intelligence Department in Dublin. In 1878, he moved to Turkey, where he was a military attaché. During the Anglo-Zulu War, he was aide-de-camp to Major General Crealocke (1st Division), then deployed with Clarke's column on reconnaissance missions (medal and clasp). In Spring 1880, he was attached to 72nd Highlanders at Kabul (staff), became orderly officer to General Thomas Durand Baker, taking part in the Logar Valley expedition of May–June 1880.
In 1882, he was involved in the Egyptian war, as Deputy Assistant Adjutant and Quartermaster-General on the base and lines of communication; he was present at Tel-el-Kebir, gaining the Khedive's Star and 4th Class Osminieh. During 1884-85, he took part in the Bechuanaland operations. He retired from the service in 1890.
He was elected Conservative MP for Bath 1892-1906 and was a member of Carlton and Army and Navy Clubs. His appointments included Chairman of the Japan Society from 1913 to 1918, and he held the Order of the Rising Sun; Gentleman Usher of the Scarlet Rod in the Order of the Bath (1913), and Knight of Justice of the Order of St John.

Marriage and children
He married Emma Cecilia Walker in 1890. Lady Murray, as she was known, died in 1922. Their country seat was 'Culverlands' at Burghfield in Berkshire.

Death and afterward
Culverlands, the former residence of Col. Sir Charles Wyndham Murray, C.B., is an 18th-century house altered and enlarged in 1879. It is a plain plastered building with a balustraded parapet and slate roofs, situated in an elevated well-wooded park, the cedars being particularly fine. The araucarias were raised from seed brought from South America by the late Thomas Bland Garland and are probably the oldest in England grown by this method.
Charles W Murray also wrote a short biography of himself and there is a copy in the Reference section of the Public Library in Bath, England.

I don't believe it's the same guy. Take a look at the Brecon County Times, April 24, 1924. A retired Lieut. Col. Wyndham, formerly of the 21st Hussars, wrote a series of letters in which he claimed to have led the advanced guard as a subaltern in one of the expeditions to Isandlwana, and actually recovered a Colour Staff of the 2/24th from a kraal near the battlefield.

There was a Sir William Wyndam went to visit Natal in 1882, I have copies of his letters about the Prince Imperials Grave.
He had a brother, a major I believe who did visit iSandlwana and drew a map of Durnfords grave.
