PostSubject: The Unveiling of the monument at Stangar 1964. Capt . H. Gough    The unveiling of a monument at Stangar in 1964 EmptyFri Mar 23, 2012 8:44 am

Hi All .
Three out of four wasnt to bad . :lol: . Captain The Hon . H. Gough hasnt been posted previously so the following is his bio
from Mackinnon & Shadbolt ....... Capt The Hon H Rodolph Gough , who died in the military hospital at Herwen 19 / 4 / 79 , was the third son of the right honourable Viscount Gough , of Lough Cutra Castle , county Galway , and a grandson of the hero of Goojerat . He was born in Ireland 11 / 1 / 1856 and was educated for the army . A commission in the Coldstream Guards being given him by Sir William Codrington , he entered that Regt in 1875 , and served with it until the latter end of 1878 .On preparations being hastened forward at that time with a view to the impending invasion of Zululand , he embarked for Sth Africa ,
and reaching Capetown early in Dec , at once proceeded to Natal . Shortly after arriving there , he was offered by Commandant
Nettleton a Captains Commission in the 2nd Regt NNC - a corps recently raised by that gallant officer in the Cape Colony , and destined to form part of Pearson's column of the army of invasion , then in course of formation at the Lower Tugela Drift .
He at once accepted the offer , and joining the 2nd Btn of the regiment at Durban on the day of its disembarkation , proceeded
with it in its march to the frontier . Capt Gough took part in the advance of the column , in Jan , 1879 , into the enemy's country ,
and was present at the battle of Inyezane on the morning of the 22 / 1 / 79 , and the subsequent occupation at Eshowe . When news of the disaster at Isandlwana reached the garrison on the 28th Jan , the entrenchments were far advanced ; they were , however , of but limited extent . , being only intended for 1,000 infantry , and there being consequently , no space either for the mounted troops or the two battalions of the 2nd NNC , they were ordered back to the Tugela at an hours notice . The country was of the roughest description the distance to be covered was 40 miles , and the probability of an attack being made by an overwhelming force of the enemy , considerable . It is perhaps worthy of record that Gough with characteristic generosity , gave up his horse on the way to non - commissioned officers , marching more than half the distance . The journey was accomplished in less than 15 hrs , the little force reaching the Tugela at 2.30 am on the 29th . In Feb , Gough , having pressing business to transact , obtained a 6 day leave of absence while the regt was being reorganised , and proceeded to Durban ; there he fell ill ,
and was laid up for several weeks . Before he should have left his bed he was met in Durban , and remonstrated with , by General Lord Chelmesford , who , arriving at Stanger shortly afterwards , informed Commandant Nettleton that '' young Gough was going about to early '' . Nettleton immediately wrote to him , telling him not to think of rejoining the regt until his strength was restored , and shortly afterwards bade him to follow the advice of the medical officers and go to Pinetown to recruit . At that time preparations for the departure of the force destined for the relief of Eshowe were being rapidly pushed forward .

The column commenced its advance on the 29th March , and reached the Inyone River on the evening of the same day . To the astonishment of their commanding officer , Gough , Davis ( who had also been sick at Durban ) , and Dawnay arrived at the camp at dusk , having ridden through from Durban - a distance of 82 miles - in less than two days . Gough who had suffered badly ' en route ' was not allowed to take duty , much as he desired to . On 31st March he was again severely attacked with Dysentery , and at the insistance of his commanding officer was ordered to take to one of the wagons ; there he remained until the column reached Ginghilovo stream , all that was possible to be done for his comfort being done . On the morning of the battle which ensued at the position taken up by the column - the 2nd April - it so happened his company was , with part of the 91st Highlanders , close to the wagon in which he was sheltered . '' The moment the alarm sounded '' wrote Nettleton , in a letter to Viscount Gough bearing date June 15th , '' the poor fellow , weak as he was , staggered out and took command of the company .
I need not say how he behaved , but I was astonished to learn after the action that he had actually led his men over the shelter - trench , when the cheer was started and the charge sounded . My own post was some hundred yds to the right of the ground covered by his Co , so that until the action was over and the regt returned from pursuit , I had not the least notion that he had even left the wagon . '' . The excitement and exertion proved to much for his enfeebled frame , and utter collapse followed . He was moved in the first week in April , with the sick and wounded to the Lower Tugela , and thence to the base hospital at Herwen ,
some 12 miles inland ; there he grew worse and worse , and in spite of tender nursing and the solicitous care of Surgeon - Major
Dudley , the Medical officer who attented him , he died 19th April . '' Throughout the force , '' wrote Nettleton in his letter to Viscount Gough , '' All who knew my late friend felt most forcibly that they had lost a right good fellow and pleasant companion , whilst the service had lost a splendid soldier . That was the universal opinion . He was more than true to the soldierly instincts of his race . I never met a man so wedded to the army service , and had his sad fate been a different one , he must have made his mark during this campaign , which affords such scope for dash and gallantry .'' ; Capt Gough's remains were interred in the cemetery at Stanger , a spot where those of many of his comrades had already found a last resting - place .
