I have a letter written in Feb 1878 by Colonel Glyn to major owen, I need help in deciphering it as it was written on both sides and has become very hard to read. Any information as to how or who could help I would be most grateful.

Bonjour "Lion 1/24".
You wrote: a letter written in Feb. 1878.
If the letter was sent to Major Owen R.A., it's strange.
it seems that his only experience of active service was with Wood's column in the Zulu War in 1879, when he commanded a mounted Gatling battery at the Battle of Ulundi.

Cheers.

Frédéric
