Forenames: 
(Sir) Redvers Henry
Surname: 
Buller
English general. FH considered him 'a big foolish person only to be tolerated because of his charming wife, Lady Audrey'. FH tried to advise Buller about his tactics before he set off for the Boer war; Buller's lack of interest in FH's criticisms apparently led him to an ignominious defeat - presumably the battle of Spion Kop.
