Lot Essay

Private Charles Stentiford was taken Prisoner of War at Colenso on 15.12.1899:

'Colonel Bullock, 2nd Devons, behaved with great gallantry. He did not receive the orders to retire, and his party defended themselves and the wounded of the two Batteries until nightfall, inflicting considerable loss on the enemy, and it was only when surrounded that he consented to surrender, because the enemy said they would shoot the wounded if he did not' (British Regiments in South Africa refers).
