South African War 1899-1902
Private C. Ravenhill 2nd RSF
On 15th December 1899 during the battle of Colenso Private Ravenhill went several times under heavy fire from his sheltered position as one of the escort to the guns to assist the officers and men who were trying to withdraw. When the detachments serving them had all been wounded or driven from them by infantry fire at close range he helped to limber up one of the guns which was saved.
