Western Times, Tuesday 11 July 1905.

Captain William Edward Montague served with the Regiment until he was appointed Staff Officer to Colonel Collingwood, Commanding 2nd Brigade, Newdigate’s Division, in which capacity he served until the forces were re-organised. Served also in the Sekukuni Campaign until invalided home in consequence of a severe fall from his horse.

“He received his first commission in August 1860 and was a staff officer at Port Marshall prior to his transfer to the 'Flying Column' which conducted operations against hostile chiefs in the Transvaal. Shortly before the First Anglo-Boer War he also took part in the Zulu Campaign (1879) in Natal. When the war broke out in 1880, Maj Montague, who was attached to the 94th Regiment at the time, was sent from Pietermaritzburg to take over the command of the British garrison at Stander- ton. During the siege of the town which lasted 88 days, he led two sorties against the enemy positons but only slight casualties were suffered on both sides. In 1881 Montague was promoted to lieutenant-colonel, a rank he held until his retirement in July 1887 when he received a honorary rank of major-general. He died on 5th June 1906 at Ilfracombe.

It's a good read campaigning in south Africa, interesting observations about the burials in a donga of 1/24th ie mass grave.

Hi All,
William Edward Montague is buried Ilfacombe Parish Churchyard, Devon. The KLH visited the Churchyard but never discovered his grave many years ago. I looked on the findagrave website today where there are details for a William Edward Montague but the date of birth and death are wrong for our Montague of the 94th, but it is strange to have two people with exactly the same name in such a small churchyard possible relation??
