Littlehand it may be a typo on your behalf but there is no officer named Bodle in M & S ? .
There is a 2nd Lt L.W Bode 57th Regt , Bode served with his regt throughout the war being present at Gingindlovhu , the relief of Eshowe , the advance of Crealocks Divis to Port Durnford , and then the subsequent operations of Clarke's Column . If this the man you may have been referring to ? . From M & S .

This is a continuing problem with this topic on this forum.  These days it is easy to find an on-line source/archive and type 'Zulu' into the quick search - then paste the results into this topic - aren't you clever?  How about checking the all facts BEFORE posting?  This way you may find the real story.

There was a Louis William Bode serving with 57th Foot in the AZW as 90th has correctly pointed out.  He was born at Melrose on 10 June 1860 and was commissioned into 57th Foot from Sandhurst on 11 May 1878. In 1898 at the age of 38, he was commanding troops in Western Australia - but then went to South Africa again during the 2nd ABW - (1899-1900). He was then a Major with The Royal Scots.  He was awarded the DSO - London Gazette dated 27 Sep 1901.  Bode died at Hastings in Sussex in 1936.  A quick look at Hart's Army List makes no mention of the appointments mentioned by Littlehand in his posting.  There is probably another 'Wm Bode' - obviously needs more research.

Kenny,

The original spelling of Bodle was correct, when I saw the B.S.A.P., I started making enquiries with someone I know who served in that force. He pointed me in the direction of http://www.bsap.org/hisrsms.html

As you can see for that piece there is no mention of the Anglo-Zulu War whatsoever. Although "Billy" Bodle does seem to have had an interesting and long career.

Well done John - it seems that Wm Boldle may have served under Col Fred Carrington (24th Foot) who raised the Buchuanaland Police.

There is a CMG (dated 16 Apr 1901) and MID (dated 19 Apr 1901) as Lt-Col British South African Police.

Kenny steady.. If you don't like what I post or anyone else for that matter, don't reply. I search the web for information post it and let other pick the bones. That's the way it is with me? Iposted the information. You and JY found further information. Now we know about another person who took part. Team work Kenny, team work.
