Hi 24th .
Romain was in the 2nd Field Co RE. who took part in the battle of Inyezane on the early morning of the 22nd Jan and once it was completed they made their way to Eshowe where as we know they were under siege basically for 15 weeks or so . I've done some
checking with the help of Graves & Petty Off Tom and it seems fairly certain that Henry was at both these places . They were under the command of Capt Warren Wynne , who as we know died at Fort Pearson I think it was on the return journey after becoming ill at Eshowe . Will look to have him fully researched at some stage , Hi Graves ????.
