Does anybody know of any connection to AZW or 24th/SWB for a Lt Col Ellis Lee (his rank in 1897)?

From a friend.
Ellis Lee purchased a commission as Ensign in the 2nd Battalion, 24th Foot on 8 July 1862. He rose to Lieutenant in 1866 and Captain in 1871. In 1874 he transferred as a Captain to the 65th.

Excellent Frank, you have joined up the dots for me - please thank your friend.
Here's why I was asking. I came across a stray copy of Historical Records of 24th last week (erroneously listed by the bookseller as published in 1992 but I guessed it was probably a 1892 first edtion - which it was!). Owners name Ellis Lee.
[You must be registered and logged in to see this image.]
Tucked inside was this little gem, addressed to Colonel Lee and signed by Colonel Edward Stevenson Browne VC (of Kambula) no less.
[You must be registered and logged in to see this image.]
Lee had clearly been a contemporary of most of those 24th officers who served in the AZW and was plainly still thought of by the regiment in 1897.
The memorial is the long brass one that is now in Brecon Cathedral and bears all the names of the 1st and 2nd Btn 24th NCOs and other ranks who were at Isandhlwana and RD.
Seven of the 24th VC winners attended the ceremony in 1898 and are shown here, including Browne.

I never cease to be amazed at what turns up out of the blue!

I think his father may have been Capt Charles Lee, 24th killed at Chillianwallah on 13 Jan 1849.

Hi Kenny

I think his father was Henry Lee (1794-1867) who was a government building contractor and seems to have made a lot of money at it. He left £40,000 in his will in 1867 which was a tidy sum. In the 1911 census Col. Ellis Lee is 69 and living in a 24 room house in Wiltshire with his wife, son and seven servants. There may of course be some other family connection to Capt. Charles Lee of Chillianwallah.
