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

Possibly!!
"1st Battalion
In 1893 the 1st Battalion arrived in Egypt and after a two-year stay there moved to Gibraltar. The battalion moved back to the east when it joined the British garrison in India in 1897. As with most British battalions posted to India, it was a lengthy stay, not leaving until 1910. It was based in Britain when the First World War began.

2nd Battalion
In 1880 the 2nd Battalion, after a brief stay in Gibraltar where they were presented with new Colours, arrived in India.
In 1886 the 2nd Battalion took part in the Third Burmese War that culminated in the annexation of Upper Burma by the British Empire, formally ending Burmese independence. It returned home in 1892.

The 2nd Battalion arrived in Cape Colony in 1900 to take part in the Boer War that had begun in 1899. The Regiment, additionally, had a number of companies from its Volunteer battalions sent to South Africa. The Boer War ended in 1902."

Hi 24th

Thanks for the dates, but Coghill was killed in 1879, so they must hace traveled to Gibralta before that.

Hi DB14

This may help you.

On 13th May 1871 he became an officer in the County of Dublin Militia. He gained a commission as Ensign in the 24th Regiment, 26th February 1873, being posted to the 1st Battalion Depot at Warley, near Birmingham, on 20th April 1873. He attended a course at the Royal Military Academy, Sandhurst, from 2nd February to 2nd April 1874, and on 22nd May he sailed to Gibraltar.
