Josceline Wodehouse

"Born the elder son of Vice-Admiral George Wodehouse and educated at the Royal Military Academy, Woolwich, Wodehouse was commissioned into the Royal Artillery in 1873. He fought in the Anglo-Zulu War in 1879.

He became Commandant of the Frontier Field Force in Egypt in 1888. He was made Commander of the 3rd Brigade of the Malakand Field Force during the Siege of Malakand in 1897 and appointed General Officer Commanding the Presidency District of Bengal in 1898.

He went on to be Governor of Bermuda in 1907 and General Officer Commanding the Northern Army in India in 1908. FamilyIn 1885 he married Constance D'Aguilar and in 1901 he married Mary Joyce Wilmot-Sitwell"



WODEHOUSE, JOSCELINE
HENEAGE (1852- )

Born July 17, 1852 : son of Admiral George Wodehouse : educated at Woolwich : entered the Royal Artiller}-, 1872 : served in the Zulu war, 1879 : Afghan war,
1880: Soudan, 1883-94 : commanded 3rd Brigade, Malakand Field Force, 1898 : severely wounded : Egyptian campaign, 1898-1900 : commanded Presidency District, Bengal, 1898-9. Sikandarabad, 1900-1 : Lahore, 1902, : C.B., 1889 : C.M.G.. 1890.


Emin Pasha evacuated Wadelai in April 1889, in the face of Dervish aggression; Battle of Argin, July 2nd; Battle of Toski, August 3rd; about 30 members of the Royal Irish Rifles, and a squadron of the 20th Hussars, were present at this conflict, an attempted invasion of Egypt by 5000 Dervishes (led by Wad-el-Nejumi, who commanded in Dongola)

"The troubles in Darfur and with Abyssinia (q.v.) induced the khalifa to reduce the garrisons of the north; nevertheless, the dervishes reoccupied Sarras, continued active in raids and skirmishes, and destroyed the railway south of Sarras, which during the Nile expedition of 1884 and 1885 had been carried as far as Akasha. It was not until May 1889 that an invasion of the frontier on a large scale was attempted. At this time the power and prestige of the khalifa were at their height: the rebellions in Darfur and Kordofan had been stamped out, the anti-mahdi was dead, and even the dervish defeat by the Abyssinians had been converted by the death of King John and the capture of his body into a success. It was therefore an opportune time to try to sweep the Turks and the British into the sea. On the 22nd of June Nejumi was at Sarras with over 6000 fighting men and 8000 followers. On the 2nd of July Colonel J. Wodehouse headed off a part of this force from the river at Argin, and, after a sharp action, completely defeated it, killing 900, among whom were many important amirs, and taking 500 prisoners and 12 banners, with very small loss to his own troops. A British brigade was on its way up stream, but the sirdar, who had already arrived to take the command in person, decided not to wait for it. The Egyptian troops, with a squadron of the 20th Hussars, concentrated at Toski, and thence, on the 3rd of August (Battle of Toski) General Grenfell, with slight loss, gained a decisive victory. Wad en Nejumi, most of his amirs, and more than 1200 Arabs were killed; 4000 prisoners and 147 standards were taken, and the dervish army practically destroyed. No further serious attempts were made to disturb the frontier, of which the most southerly outpost was at once advanced to Sarras."
