Typer letter addressed to W. B. Hodson dated 15th May, 1901. From the War Office, London.
"Dear Sir, I am desired by General Sir Redvers Buller to express to you his best thanks for the exellent service you rendered in 1900, whilst belonging to the Corps of Guides, attached to the Field Intelligence Department of the Natal Army. i am, Yours very truly Arthur Sandbach. Late Asst. Adjt. General for Intelligence, Natal Army."
Major-General Arthur Edmund Sandbach CB DSO (30 July 1859 – 25 June 1928) was a British Army general officer who served in the Royal Engineers and on the General Staff, eventually rising to command the 68th (2nd Welsh) and 59th (2nd North Midland) Divisions during the First World War.
On returning from Egypt at the start of 1899, Sandbach was appointed as the Military Secretary to the Viceroy of India, a post he held until November, when the outbreak of the Second Boer War meant that he was sent to South Africa. He worked on the staff in South Africa as an assistant adjutant-general, for which he was awarded the Distinguished Service Order as well as a second mention in despatches. (Wikipedia)
