    Sold with details from the London Gazette dated 2nd May 1894 relating to the Expedition against the Sofas, where he accompanied the column in charge of the medical department and was involved in the attack on Jambur. The column arrived at the town at 7am and severe resistance was encountered, the troops being subjected to a heavy fire from all sides, the enemy, however were kept in check by well-sustained volleys. Several attempts to fire the town being unsuccessful, after a few rounds from the 7-pdr and the Maxim guns, the "charge" was sounded and the stockade taken at the point of the bayonet at 8.15am. At 8.30am the town was in flames, and it and the stockade utterly destroyed. The flying column then returned to the entrenched position at Busumbala.
