Lord Chelmsford Said .Buller is ‘one of the finest soldiers of the century’, so modest and reticent –that it was difficult to say for what individual deed he had got the Victoria Cross as he had been doing acts worthy of it all along the line

Questions
1) Is this a Zulu War Medal
2) Who is the Officer

What I do know
His is an Officer of the 4th (King's Own Royal) Regiment
His surname is Rowlandson.

There is a John Rowlandson listed on the Medal Roll

The King's Own Museum list this officer as Alfred Turner Rowlandson.

3) Is this the same Officer?

I have found the following

THE LONDON GAZETTE, AUGUST 24, 1886.

So the photo can not be Alfred Turner if that is a Zulu War Medal.
