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

Looking for any information relating to Colonel Harness, But only after the Zulu War. For some reason there doe's not seem to be much on him, that includes this forum. Did he retire after the Zulu War. He's the only one I'm really having problems with. Littlehand maybe this is your cup of tea.. Anything please.

Harness' role in the court of inquiry at Helpmekaar a few days after the battle is briefly described on p551-554 of Knight's Zulu Rising. He and his role in this seems to have been roundly criticised, from all sides. Perhaps this compromised his subsequent career and he fell into obscurity afterwards.

[You must be registered and logged in to see this image.]

"Sir, We your neighbours residing in the little village of Worling, the home of your revered and respected father, desire to express to you and your family our most hearty and sincere congratulations on your safe return from the dangers, privations, and incessant anxieties you and your heroic comrades in arms have experienced for nearly five years in fighting in the war in South Africa, in the progress of which your gallant Corps of Artillery fully maintained the prestige, valor and true courage which is ever characteristic of the British Army. We wish also to express to you the great pleasure we all feel in welcoming you home to receive our humble and sincere thanks, which we in common with all England, owe to you and your gallant Corps for defending our distant colonists from the attacks and tyranny of a cruel and treacherous enemy, whereby a satisfactory conclusion has been attained to a war which has cost our Country so many valuable lives and the result of which we doubt not will under providence tend to the civilization as well as the moral and religious improvements of that distant, important, and at present benighted part of the world. We further hope that by God's blessing you may be spared many years to enjoy in perfect health and happiness the laurels and honours you have nobly won." (citizens' signatures below)

Arthurs sister Caroline leaves Headington following her fathers death and moves to Woolwich where Arthur is now stationed, the house at Bartons end is then rented out.

1886, the house and contents are sold by action at Bartons End Headington.

1887, Caroline, sister of Col. Arthur Harness died in Woolwich aged 56 yrs.

London Gazette Sept 22nd 1891: Royal Military Academy, Lt Colonel and Colonel J.M. Murray from half pay, Royal Artillery, to be assistant commandant and secretary, in succession to Lt Colonel and Colonel A. Harness C.B. whose period of service has expired.

1901 living at 19 Montpellier Villa's Brighton aged 62 years with him are his housekeeper and his cook.
