I was reading about Buller, and in some of the letters he sent home, he seemed more concerned about being overlooked for promotion and worried about not receiving reconition for his work. I know he was a well respected man, but was he doing it for the right reason, or just thinking of his future.

impi. Whats the source of this letter you mention.

What i have read about Buller doesn't reflect him as being a glory hunter. He was just doing his job, most of the time better than most. He was well respected by all ranks.

I have met very few - if any - good officers who were not ambitious for promotion and recognition. Salute
If he can't discuss this in letters home, well....

Would be interesting to read those letters though. Can you point me in the right direction impi?

Impi. Not sure If you have read all of the book. Let's just say our good friend Buller, had been stuck in one place for a long time, reinforcements were being sent from England and he was probaly bored out of his skull and feeling a bit sorry for himself. But no he wasn't a glory hunter, just a bloody good officer..

A good informative read and insight into this man; certainly more than the average glory hunter!

Thanks for the link Ulundi.

Isn't it odd how much this looks like the great work of our good friend Richie?

Makes you wonder if someone has been sneaking a look at Richie's work he posts on the forum and copying it, maybe Richie should start copyrighting his work with his great modelling skills.
