I have recently read a novel about the battle of Isandlwana, which used the captain of E company as the fictional hero -
" I think of you often" by Corby J Treadway.

It made me wonder where the captain was at the time of the invasion as he obviously wasn't with his company.

I think the name in the book is Captain James Sutton but it is fictional. Nobody of that name in the 24th.
The previous Captain of E Company (during the Eastern Cape War in 1878) was R B Chamberlin. In 1879 he was serving as brevet Major at Fort Napier in Natal. So Lt. Cavaye commanded E Company.

Thanks for that. It was purely a curiosity as to why there was no captain in charge of the company and what had happened to him. I thought perhaps he had died or was sick.
Presumably he survived the war, so a fortuitous secondment.

Hi Eaton
Yes he survived the war . From Mackinnon & Shadbolt page 342 .. Bvt Lt-Col W.R.B.Chamberlain ( Retired ) In consequence of injuries received while bush fighting in the Kaffir War , Maj Chamberlain was unable to go to the front with the 2nd Batt , and remained as Cmdt of Fort Napier at Pietermaritzburg during the campaign .
