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

DB14,

Schiess' V.C. was passed to the then War Office, presumably by the Captain of H.M.T. 'Serapis', where it languished in an office desk for some years.

It was sent to the National Army Museum, which was originally at the Royal Military College. It was from there transferred to the National Army Museum at Chelsea when that buidling opened in the late 1960's or early 1970's, where it remains on display in the Zulu War case.
