Lieutenant John Chard: What's our strength? Lieutenant Gonville Bromhead: Seven officers including surgeon, commissaries and so on; Adendorff now I suppose; wounded and sick 36, fit for duty 97 and about 40 native levies. Not much of an army for you.

This may be your man ? ; Royal Artillery 7th Brigade , Number 10 Battery ( Gatling Field Battery ) , Major Owen , J.F. Clasp 1879 , there is a well known picture of him , which is on here , and in nearly every book on the AZW !. Assuming he's the same man , which , it seems , is very likely ! .
