some more info on Henry Drinkrow Harrison .
From Mackinnon & Shadbolt . Capts Forster , Harrison , Alexander , Wyld , Maclear , Martin & Backhouse served with the Regt throughout the war , and were present at the battle of Inyezane - the two former respectively as Acting Senior and Junior Majors . Both took a prominent part in the action and were present at Etshowe throughout the blockade .
The Following from ' Fearful Hard Times ' The siege and relief of Eshowe , 1879 . By Castle & Knight . Well worth getting if anyone is thinking of it .

'' While the battle was raging on the slopes , the remainder of the Column was still crossing the Nyezane , and as the wagons came up they were parked on the flat to the left of the road . This shortened the length of the Column considerably , freeing some of the troops who had been guarding it , and Pearson sent to Captains Harrison and Wyld of the ' Buffs ' to order them to deploy to their right , below Wynne's Engineers . The British position was gradually shuffling into an extended line , facing Wombane , with its left flank curled to refuse it to the Zulu centre and right . At first Wyld & Harrison were supported by Lt Dowding with the Royal Marines , and Midshipman Coker's Gatling Gun ''.
