1899 Active Service Letter to London endorsed at top as from "H Branwhite - Tpr - Natal Police Force, Tugela Ferry - Natal". Greytown cds DE 14 99. Not countersigned by commanding officer as required, consequently with charges being raised as per markings "T/10c" and in London the Foreign Branch "1d FBA" applied. Interesting early letter from the British side of the Natal campaign. Uncommon illustration of the failure to adhere to concessionary military rate requirements being applied punitively. VF.
