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 .
We have discussed this before but thought many may find this interesting . Again from the Diary Of Lewis . W. Reynolds .
Part of his entry for this day .
26th July . Made a medical inspection of the 1 / 13th - a large number of the men had red flabby gums , in some cases bleeding but
in none amounting to the scorbutic gum. This is probably the effect of a deficiency of fresh vegetables - Lime juice has run short & can not be issued to a whole Regt . Bad teeth were very noticeable - the climate is said to be bad for teeth but probably more damage is done from eating so much jam and other sweet things which is done in this colony - With soldiers it may also be put down
to the want of tooth brushes - & the tough meat they have consequently to eat '' .
cheers 90th.

Bit odd. I have read so much with regards to personal accounts of the Orange and lemon groves seen during the Zulu War. I would have thought it would have been easier to get these fruits in SA than in England back then.
