Would not Harry Chauvel be a New South Welshman if he was born in New South Wales, just as Major (later Sir) Neville R Howse VC stated his nationality to be 'ENGLISH' on the 'Return of Particulars of the Officers and Men of the NSW Army Medical Corps' prior to embarkation for South Africa in 1899, even though he is credited to be the first 'AUSTRALIAN' to be awarded the Victoria Cross in the South African Boer War of 1899-1902.
