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

Hi all

Speaking of Wolseley, if it was he who commanded all the British Imperiale troops in South Africa, Frere could not do all the evil he has done.

First, there would have been no invasion of Zululand.

Cheers

Yes, but Wolseley would never have the leader of an military invasion without the Prime Minister and the Queen are okay ...

Is this lack of imperial troops in the invasion did not take place under the predecessor of LC or is it because he would not accept an military invasion without the Prime Minister and the Queen are okay ...

"Lord Wolseley served with the 80th Regiment in the Burmese war of 1852-53 (Medal for Pegu), was with the e-expedition under Sir John Cheape against the robber chief Myattoon, and was severely wounded when leading the storming party against the chief's stronghold on the 19th March (mentioned in despatches). Landed in the Crimea with the 90th Light Infantry on 5th Dec. 1854, and was employed in the trenches as Acting Engineer until Sebastopol was taken; was engaged in the assault and defence of the Quarries on 7th June, and on duty in the trenches at the attack of the i8th June; severely wounded in a sortie 30th August, when in charge of the advanced sap (several times mentioned in despatches. Brevet of Major, Medal with Clasp, Knight of the Legion of Honour, 5th Class of the Medjidie, and Turkish Medal). Served in the Indian campaigns of 1857-59, and was present at the relief of Luck- now, defence of the Alumbagh by Outram, with the several engagements there, siege and capture of Lucknow, sub-sequently as D.A.Q.M. General to Grant's division and with it at the affair of Baree, action at Nawabgunger and all the others (ought by that force (repeatedly mentioned in despatches. Brevet of Lt. Colonel, Medal with Clasp). Served in the war of 1860 in China upon the Quarter Master General's Staff, and was present at the assault of the Taku forts, and in all the engagements throughout the campaign (promoted Major unattached Medal with two Clasps).' Commanded the expedition sent in 1870 from Canada to the Red River Territory for the suppression of the Rebel Government established at Fort Garry against the Queen's authority, and was created a Knight of St. Michael and St. George and Companion of the Bath for his services upon that occasion (Medal). Was Governor and Commander of the Forces on the Gold Coast during the Asiianti war of 1873-74 (received the thanks of both Houses of Parliament, promoted to be Major General for Distinguished Service in the Field, GCMG. KCB. and Medal with Clasp). At a meeting of the Common Council of the Corporation of London it was unanimously resolved as follows: — " That the honorary freedom of this City', with a sword of the value of 100 guineas, be presented to Major-General Sir Garnet Joseph Wolseley, KCB. GCMG., in recognition of his gallant services in the British Army, and especially in reference to the distinguished ability and gallantry displayed by him in his command of the expedition to the Gold Coast, by which he obtained results conducive to peace, commerce, and civilisation on the continent of .Africa. And this Court desires also to record its admiration of the patient endurance of hardship exhibited, and the valuable co-operation
and assistance rendered to Sir Garnet Wolseley, by the gallant officers and men of both services and of all arms engaged in the expedition." Was sent to South Africa in June 1879 as Governor and High Commissioner of Natal and lands adjacent, with local rank of General. Completed the subjugation of the Zulus and brought the Zulu war to a conclusion. Afterwards overpowered Sekukuni's hostile nation and destroyed their stronghold; and finally subdued the disaffected Boers and completed the annexation of the Transvaal (GCB. Medal with Clasp). Was Commander in Chief of the British Expeditionary Army throughout the Egyptian war of 1882, in which campaign that Army in the space of 25 days effected disembarkation at Ismailia, traversed the desert, and seized the capital of Egypt
together with its citadel and the rebel chief, having in that period fought and defeated the enemy five times — finally at Tel-el-Kebir where the enemy's strongly entrenched position was taken at the point of the bayonet after an arduous night march, all his guns captured, and his army overwhelmed (received the t'nanks of both Houses of Parliament, raised to the Peerage, promoted General for Distinguished Service in the Field, Medal with Clasp, 1st Class of the Osmanieh, and Khedive's Star). Commanded the forces in the Soudan campaign in 1884-85 (received the thanks of both Houses of Parliament, was raised to a Viscount in the Peerage and received two Clasps)."
