Henry Griffith Bowen was born at Newport, Pembrokeshire, on 8 August 1841. He was appointed Ensign in the 88th Foot on 29 October 1859, became Lieutenant on 6 August 1861, and Captain on 20 October 1869. He served in command of a detachment at East London during the Kaffir War of 1877-78, and in various operations during the Zulu War from March 1879. He was appointed Major on 22 December 1880, and retired, becoming Hon. Lieutenant-Colonel with the Essex Rifles Volunteers in July 1881. He died at West Bergholt on 16 August 1909

Unfortunately the photo wasn't available.  It would be nice if this could be fixed.  Incidentally, his uniform and other memorabilia are at the National Army Museum, and his son was Col. Hugh Rice Bowen DSO and Bar, Croix de Guerre.
