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

Lieutenant Harford of the Natal Native Contingent has been covered elsewhere on this forum and his interest in the natural sciences is well documented.  Perhaps not as well known as a naturalist was a member of the Commissariat during the Zulu War, P G  Furse.  This link came to light many years ago while I was Editor of the South African Museum’s magazine, Sagittarius, and it became the subject of a ‘From the Archives’ contribution to this magazine.  Does anyone know what became of Furse and his shell collection?

Hi Brett .

Cheers 90th. Salute
