    Driver Charles News served with the 7th Brigade of the Royal Artillery.


    After seeing service during the earlier campaigns of 1877 and 1879 he is recorded as having been engaged against the Zulus in 1879.


    He suffered a gunshot wound in his thigh during the action at Ingogo River on 28 January 1881.


    This action is perhaps better known as the Battle of Schuinshoogte in South Africa.


    The 1980 Centenary issue of The South African Military History Society Journal records that the British suffered 4 Officers and 62 men killed and another 4 officers and 63 men wounded.


    The Boer losses were recorded as 8 killed, 6 wounded, of whom a further two subsequently died as a result of their wounds.
