Charles Russell

Major, Oxfordshire Light Infantry, died from wounds received in action near Paardeberg, on 18th February 1900, during the pursuit of Cronje. He was the only son of the Rev. Russell Day, rector of Horstead, Norwich, was born April, 1860, and educated at Eton (Mr. Carter’s). He entered the Oxfordshire Light Infantry from the 3rd Royal Lancashire Militia, January, 1882, promoted captain July, 1889, and major October 1899. Major Day was a fellow of the Society of Antiquaries, and was well known in the musical world. In 1890 he was employed in connection with the musical department of the Royal Military Exhibition at South Kensington, and in 1892 served as a member of the English Committee of the Vienna International Musical Exhibition; he also served in a similar capacity for the Paris Musical Exhibition of 1900. He was the author of “Music and Musical Instruments of Southern India and The Deccan.” Major Day accompanied his battalion to South Africa in December 1899, and was present at the fighting at Klip Kraal, where his field glasses were broken to pieces by a bullet. He also took part in the Relief of Kimberley; and at Paardeberg was struck down when going to the assistance of Corporal Knowles, who was wounded, and whose life he saved. After he had been wounded, and while being attended to, Major Day’s first thought was for the Corporal, adding “never mind me.” He is buried at Paardeberg; his funeral was most pathetic. Among many others attending were some thirty men of his battalion who had been wounded — a sad picture. One who was present adds “not many of us returned with dry eyes.”

From 1881-85 he was A.D.C. to the General Officer Commanding the Forces in Ireland, and from 1887-89 was Commandant of the School of Instruction for Auxiliary Forces at Wellington Barracks. His battalion, on arrival in South Africa, joined the Kimberley Relief Force, under Lieutenant-General Lord Methuen, and took part in the battles of Belmont and Graspan. While leading his battalion at Modder River, he was killed by one of the first shells fired by the Boers in this action. He is mentioned in the report of Major-General Sir H. Colville, concerning the battle of Belmont — ” the advance of his battalion was distinctly well performed.”
