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

Question Hello everyone, this is my first posting so please be gentle with me.
I have long had an avid interest in the Zulu campaign of 1879 since I saw the film IN CARDIFF in 1964. I was impressed when all the small booklets one used to buy for 10 shillings each were tossed into the air when the defenders began to sing 'Men of Harlech' . NOW THAT was what I call a reaction!!
Since then I have been collecting little bits and pieces mostly books but I have recently purchased a medal to a 3700 Serg't W. Wellford of the Army Hospital Corps.
So far I have established that he fought against the Zulu and Seku Kuri (?) and I have also established that there were Lt. W. Pike and 21 other ranks of the AHC at Ulundi. Although I cannot establish if he was present.
My query is can anyone shed any further light on this chaps service, movements, postings, etc. or hopefully point me in the direction of his attestation papers. That would be amazing.
Cracking site by the way and thanks in anticipation.
Regards,
Vince
