LONGHURST, SEAWARD - 2 8 / 1 0 / 1 9 2 5 )
"He qualified MRCVS (London) on 31/3/1873 and with his regiment, the 1st Dragoon Guards, saw service in Natal from 1879 to 1880. In his book entitled Lord Chelmsford and the Zulu war (John Lane The Bodley Head 1939), Major General French D.S.O. records the following sequence of incidents involving veterinarian S Longhurst of the K.D.G's (kings Dragoon Guards).
On 21 May 1879 when the British columns revisited the battle ground of Isandhlawana for the first time after the massacre on the 22nd of January, a report was made to Miss Francis Colenso (daughter of Bishop Colenso) by Longhurst that he had seen Mr Theophilus Shepstone (son of Sir Theophilus) remove objects as well as correspondence from the dead body of Colonel Durnford. This action on the part of Shepstone smacked of concealment. At the time it was common knowledge that Miss Colenso was in love with Colonel Durnford and as he could be blamed for the unnecessary loss of life at Isandhlawana . she felt _that the correspondence removed from his body by Shepstone may have contained written orders which rendered Durnford blameless, ~nd Lord Chelmsford blameworthy. Subsequent enquiries proved that Shepstone had found no papers on Durnford's body (as it was coatless), but that his portmanteau had been handed to Miss Coleriso:unopened. Amongst the papers in this portmanteau was a despatch from Lord Chelmsford placing Durnford in sole command of the troops-and-therefore it could be assumed that he had been responsible for the massacre. It is possible therefore that Longhurst was guilty of make a false statement and that Miss Colenso in her turn was guilty-of concealment.
In 1880 Longhurst succeeded T P Gudgin as P.V.S. of the Army veterinary Department for a few months and in turn was succeeded by J D Lambert. He died on 28/10/1925 at Ash."
