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

1879graves,

I checked the Medal Roll for the 91st Regiment and found two Privates with the name of Conway.  

The first was #1771 H. Conway who received the South Africa Medal with “1879” clasp.

The second was #1936 M. Conway who received the South Africa Medal without clasp.  I think it is safe to eliminate this man.

It would be possible that his handwriting was misread by someone at the newspaper and they put a “W” for his first initial instead of “H.”  The newspaper printed “C.L.A. Highlanders” for his regiment’s name instead of “P.L.A. Highlanders” (“Princess Louise’s Argyllshire” Highlanders.”)  The misreading theory is strictly a guess on my part.

The father, James Conway, was a former Color-Sergeant in the 91st.

Medal Roll also shows Sgt. McIntyre 91st as killed (see letter).

Hi POT

Now we have a 1771 Hugh Conway 91st, could be my man?
We also now have a father name of Daniel, could this be Sergeant Instructor Conway?

Hi Steve
I Can not find a Sgt. Mcintyre KIA

Here he is. The roll says "dead". Maybe not on the KIA list because he died of wounds a little later.

Hi Steve

Great many thanks for the information, so KIA (even if of wounds a little later) agree

Thanks to POT

POT has found Sergeant-Instructor Conway first name to be James.
We now know that Hugh Conway could not be the letter writer as his Fathers name was Daniel.
