99th Regiment - A sepia portrait photograph of Lieutenant Colonel. William Henry Dowling Reeves Welman, CB, the Commanding Officer of the 99th Foot during the Zulu Campaign. He joined the 99th in 1847 and served in the Regiment for many years including the Cape in 1865. On arrival in South Africa in 1879, he left two companies to garrison Durban and Stanger, taking the remainder of the Regiment to the 1st Division concentration area on the Lower Tugela river. He commanded the second section of Col. Pearson's column. He then spent the next two months besieged in Eshowe. After the campaign, he went to Bermuda and in 1882 he took the Regiment to India, relinquishing command in Deolali. After thirty four years service in the Regiment, he retired as a Major General. Photographer: Lambert Wseton & Son, Dover & Folkestone.
