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

The official history of the 24th, CT ATkinson, records that Lt G Bromhead received a VC and a Brevet as Major. However in LGO (unnumbered) dated 22nd May 1879 He is promoted to Captain, in place of Reginald Younghusband.
Any help available as to when he would have received his Brevet rank?

Cheers

Springbok,

Gonville Bromhead was promoted to Captain with effect from 23rd January 1879, see The London Gazette of 21st March 1879, the same Gazette which lists a number of other promotions within the 24th caused by Isandlwana.

His Brevet Majority was ante-dated to the same date of 23rd January 1879.

Springbok,

I imagine he did, or at least turned a deaf ear to all the adulation.

90th,

Only one that I know of John Rouse Merriot Chard, Royal Engineers, or was that too obvious? Chard & Bromhead's brevets are the link below.

Take a look at [You must be registered and logged in to see this link.] for the 24th and others promoted because of casualties and tab it back to the previous page 2309, by use the button at the top to see the others.
