"Lord Wolseley served with the 80th Regiment in the Burmese war of 1852-53 (Medal for Pegu), was with the expedition under Sir John Cheape against the robber chief Myattoon, and was severely wounded when leading the storming party against the chief's stronghold on the 19th March (mentioned in despatches). Landed in the Crimea with the 90th Light Infantry on 5th Dec. 1854, and was employed in the trenches as Acting Engineer until Sebastopol was taken.

Was engaged in the assault and defence of the Quarries on 7th June, and on duty in the Trenches at the attack of the 18th June; severely wounded in a sortie 30th August, when in charge of the advanced sap—several times mentioned in despatches (Medal with Clasp, Knight of the Legion of Honor, 5th Class of the Medijdie, and Turkish Medal). Served in the Indian campaigns of 1857-59, and was present at the relief of Lucknow, defence of the Alumbaghby Outram, with the several engagements there, siege and capture of Lucknow, subsequently as D.A.Q.M. General to Giant's division and with it at the affair of Baree, action at Navvabgunge, and all the others fought by that force (repeatedly mentioned in despatches.

Brevet of Lt.Colonel, Medal with Clasp). Served in the war of 1S60 in China upon the Quarter Master General's Staff, and was present at the assault of the Taku Forts, and in all the engagements throughout the campaign (Medal with two Clasps). Commanded the Expedition sent in 1870 from Canada to the Red River Territory for the suppression of the Rebel Government established at Fort Garry against the Queen's authority, and was created a Knight of St. Michael and St. George for his services upon that occasion.

Was Governor and Commander of the Forces on the Gold Coast during the Ashanti War of 1873-74 (received the thanks of both Houses of Parliament, promoted to be Major General for distinguished service in the field, OCMG, KCB. and Medal with Clasp). Was sent to South Africa in June 1879 as Governor and High Commissioner of Natal and lands adjacent, with local rank of General. Completed the subjugation of the Zulus and brought the Zulu war to a conclusion. Afterwards overpowered Sekukuni's hostile nation and destroyed their stronghold; and finally subdued the disaffected Boers and completed the annexation of the Transvaal (GCB., Medal with Clasp). Was Commander in Chief of the British Expeditionary Army throughout the Egyptian war of 1882, in which campaign that Army in the space of 25 days effected disembarkation at Ismailia, traversed the desert, and seized the capital of Egypt together with its citadel and the rebel chief, having in that period fought and defeated the enemy five times—finally at Tel-el-Kebir where the enemy's strongly entrenched position was taken at the point of the bayonet after an arduous night march, all his guns captured, and his army overwhelmed (received the thanks of both Houses of Parliament, raised to the Peerage, promoted General for distinguished service in the field, Medal with Clasp, 1st Class of the Osmanieb, and Khedive's Star)"
