TRUMPET-MAJOR HENDERSON, SCOTS GREYS.
Trumpet-Major James Henderson, Scots Greys, died suddenly on Sunday morning at Kiltarlity. He had been attached to the Lovat Scouts during training, giving instructions to trumpeters. With a comrade he went to spend a holiday at Kiltarlity. Henderson retired to rest, but suddenly expired during the night. He was one of the best-known trumpet-majors in the army, and was popular in the regiment, which is at present stationed at Edinburgh. He saw service in South Africa, where he received no fewer than eight severe wounds. He leaves a widow and five children.

There is an entry in Palmer for "8750 Pte. J.H.Henderson, Lovat's Scouts" who was wounded at Edenburg on 14/11/00. SAFF says he was the only casualty in that unit on that day.

8750 Pte JH Henderson was "John Hector" not "James".

Could be Sgt 5377 J Henderson, Scots Greys, who served in SA, but is not in the casualty rolls, there are no service papers.
