Lieutenant Charles Henry Bennett Williams was attached to the 94th Foot in South Africa and appears on the medal roll for that regiment (as ‘William’ not ‘Williams’).
He was the 5th son of Sir Hugh Williams, Bart., of Knowlton Hall, Ellesmere, and was appointed Sub-Lieutenant in the Oxford Militia in 1874, becoming Lieutenant in 1876. He was seconded in 1879 for service in South Africa, first with Lonsdale’s Horse and subsequently with the 94th Foot. He served in the Zulu war and operations with Sekukuni and the storming of his stronghold. He became a Captain in 1884, Hon. Major in 1889 and resigned his commission in 1895.
