Hi Folks

There was a pocket watch presented to him in November 1879 for his services by Commissary Reeves.

"SURGEON MAJOR-GENERAL GIRAUD.

HC Deb 25 April 1895 vol 32 cc1613-4 1613
SIR ALBERT ROLLIT (Islington, S.) I beg to ask the Secretary of State for War, whether, and for what specified period, the services of Surgeon Major-General C. H. Giraud, Principal Medical Officer at Netley, has been extended beyond the age laid down by Regulation 1614 for retirement; and whether, and when, the period of extension was notified to the Officer concerned.

THE SECRETARY OF STATE FOR WAR (Mr. CAMPBELL - BANNERMAN, Stirling Burghs) The services of Surgeon Major General Giraud have not been extended beyond the maximum age laid down by Regulation for retirement. The age laid down by the Royal Warrant for retirement of a Surgeon Major General is 62 when the interests of the public service would be materially advanced by his retention to that age; and it was deemed advisable to retain Dr. Giraud's services at Netley till he reached that age. He was verbally informed of this at the time it was so decided.

"Charles Hervè Giraud was born in Sevenoaks, Kent on 30 November 1834. Appointed a Staff Assistant Surgeon on 10 March 1858, he served in the latter part of the Indian Mutiny, seeing action at Sissea Ghat. Transferred to the 31st Regiment in December 1858 he then saw service in the China War of 1857-60, being present at Sinho and the storming of Tangku. Remaining in China, Giraud served in operations against the Taiping Rebels, 1863-64, being present at the storming and capture of walled towns of Kading, Nagao, Cholin and Tsin-poo, the relief and recapture of Kading and the taking of the stockade at Nan-si-ang. Promoted to Surgeon in March 1868 and Surgeon-Major in April 1873, he next served in the Zulu War of 1879 and was still in South Africa at the time of the First Boer War 1881 when he served as a Sanitary Officer. Further promotions followed, attaining the rank of Surgeon Major-General in January 1894. He retired from the service in 1896 and died on 10 May 1918."
