Hi Folks

I am looking for the detail of how Sargeant Major C Jenkins was promoted to Lt.

I am certain that somebody will know - I know the date and the broad outline of what he did - I am more interested in how he was promoted.

Regards to all

David

"an extract of which reads, ‘I am glad to learn that the Government has granted an increase of the pension allowed to ex-Lieut. Charles Jenkins, a native of Ventnor, of the Cape Mounted Rifles ... for distinguished conduct in the field during the Zulu War of 1879. Lieut. Jenkins daringly made the charge single-handed with revolver and sword upon a number of Zulus who were defending their own kraal, but were forced by him to retreat, seven of the enemy being left dead ... It was owing to the action of Lieut. Jenkins that an army of Zulus who were coming over the hill at the battle of Inyazana ... were successfully put to flight ... Lord Chelmsford afterwards recommended the soldier for promotion from Sergeant-Major to Lieutenant.’

Hi Littlehand

Brilliant - most of that I knew but how many other NCO's were recommended to officer status during the war by Lord Chelmsford.

Regards

David
