PostSubject: Lt. Charles Evelyn Mason 2 / 3rd Regt ( The Buffs )    Lieutenant C.E MASON 2nd Battalion, 3rd (East Kent - The Buffs)  EmptyWed Aug 24, 2011 6:44 am

Lt. C.E.Mason died at Herwen 7 / 4 / 79 , was the 4th and youngest son of G.W.Mason , Esquire , of Morton Hall , Retford ,
Notts , and Marianne Atherton , his wife , daughter of Capt J.G Mitford , E.I.C.S . He was born on the 27 / 1 / 55 at Langharne ,
Carmarthenshire , South Wales . Early in 1866 he went to a preparatory school at East Sheen ; the headmaster was Mr. Waterfield.
Thence he was removed to Repton , where he remained for several years . He proceeded to Brussels in 1872 , in order to perfect
his knowledge of French ; and on his return commenced reading at Captain Lendy's establishment at Sunbury . Competing in the
army examination in Aug 1874 , he passed first in the list , taking nearly 2,000 marks more than the second successful candidate .
Being allowed to choose his Regt in consequence of his success , he selected the Buffs , and at the end of Sept joined his Battalion at Mullingar . In May , 1875 , Lt Mason proceeded with his Regt to Mauritius where he remained stationed until immediately prior to the outbreak of the zulu war . Owing to his health having been greatly impaired by the climate during his 3 yrs service in the Island ,
he was then offered the charge of the invalids who were about to be sent home ; but being unwilling to lose any opportunity of seeing active service , he declined the offer , and embarked with his Regt on its departure for Sth Africa .On arrival in Natal , Lt. Mason proceeded with his Regt to Join Col. Pearson's Column , which was then in course of formation on the Lower Tugela , and subsequently took part in the advance of that force into Zululand . Present at the Battle of Inyezane , and after the column arrived at Etshowe was ordered back to Fort Tenedos on the Tugela , in charge of empty wagons . From Ft. Tenedos he was sent with several
companies of his Regt to occupy St. Andrews , a deserted mission station in Zululand , a few miles over the Fontier . He seized with fever a few days afterwards , was taken to the Military Hospital at Herwen , New Gelderland , and died a few days after an illness of a few days .
Also from Mackinnon & Shadbolt .
cheers 90th.
