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 All

This is on a well known auction site at the moment.

Officer in staff uniform wearing order and 3 campaign medals. Including CB and possibly South Africa medal (Zulu War).
Complete with typewritten notes detailing the officers medals and dress and making a tentative identification as Sir William Penn Symons (although someone has written "dont think so" in ink to notes).

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


Has anyone got any ideas as to who he may be?

This is one of Penn Symons

Hi Impi

I have a hunch of who he might be but I would like to hear others thoughts on who he might be first.

Smith Dorean had an extended jaw line, the photo in the John Young collection shows that very well. Also published in the Lock and Quantrill book, 'Zulu Victory'.

It is Charles Tucker, who commanded the 80th Regiment during the Anglo-Zulu War.
