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

One of my letters from General Sir A Cunnyghame to Lt colonel A Owen.

No9 Rue Not really Dame
Pall la France
23rd January 1879

My dear Owen
I was very glad to see your promotion, and also that of Hopton.
You did right well at the battle of Newmaka and the service which you rendered to the army and to myself was correctly and zealously done.
I do not think you need regret having left Natal, I should imagine that Cetswayo will initially accept the terms which Sir Bartle Frere will have offered him and thus and end (for the present)will be made of the war. You have been fortunate I think to have got home so soon even for a short time. We are staying at Pall for another month, leaving to London in the middle of March.
I however intend leaving here about the 1st of March and to travel through Spain returning home from Gibraltar by the 1st of April. I should so much like it if you would come here at the end of February and join me in a trip through Spain, can you do so? Write me a line on this subject.
I would be most proud to present you at the soir'ee on my return no doubt there will be one in may. The Queen has been personally as well as the Prince of Wales, most kind to me and Lady Cunnyghame. By the way I have been treated can never be altered from my mind and after the grand coop of the battle may tend to prove that my military services were acceptable yet the recall of which all our friends say was altogether undeserved can never be forgotten.
I should be glad to talk over old times with you and what we doing this time last year. I hope you can come to Spain a month spent in this way cannot but be advantageous to you.

Very truly
A Cunnyghame
