99th Regiment -Lieutenant George Charles Jefferyes Johnson in civilian clothes. Born in Cork and educated at Cheltenham College, he joined the 99th at Shorncliffe after passing out of Sandhurst in 1872. This was followed by postings to the Curragh and Chatham. During this time he passed a course in musketry at Hythe leaving with a first class certificate. He was appointed as a Instructor of Musketry to the regiment, an appointment he held at his death. Going with the Regiment to Natal, he was present at the Battle of Inyezane, where his Colour Sergeant was shot at his side. He commanded Fort Pearson for six weeks. He then commanded his company on the column to relieve Eshowe and was with his company at Gingindlovu forming part of the outlying piquets when they first sighted the attacking Zulu army. Because he was a skilled marksman he had taken a rifle from one of his men to try and deal with a Zulu who was ?doing much mischief?. He had fired several times, when suddenly placing his hand to his breast, he exclaimed, ?I am shot? and died ten minutes later. He was buried at Gingindlovu and is commemorated in Cork Cathedral and in Chatham church. His photograph is in ?The Wiltshire Regiment 1756-1914?. Photographer: J Weston & Sons, 20a, Sandgate Road, Folkestone 2 copies, the second a larger one from the Royal Archives at Windsor Castle.
