Carte de Visite
Lambert Weston & Son - Photographer
18 Waterloo Crescent, Dover, England
1876
The officer of the 2/West India that he exchanged with was Frederick Godwin-Austin who as a member of Charlie Pope’s “G” company would be
killed at Isandlwana a bit more than a year later on 22 January, 1879 during the opening stages of the Anglo-Zulu War. I am guessing at this point
since I do not have Creyk’s service  papers in hand yet, that Creyk may have been in Pope’s company prior to the exchange with Godwin-Austin.

When I looked at the 1877 Army List and saw Creyk’s namelisted along with Younghusband, Melvill, Porteous, Pope, Cavaye, Coghill, Anstey and
all of his other former comrades in arms I wonder how his decision to exchange may have affected his life in later years. It could certainly have
been one of those “there but by the grace of God…” situations.
