    The 5th Battery of the 25th Brigade of Royal Artillery accompanied Sir Robert Napier's 1868 Abyssinia Expeditionary Force on its march on the Abyssinian emperor Theodore II's capital, Magdala. Napier's attack on the city was one of the most successful of the Nineteenth Century in terms of casualties, with only two Britons killed and eighteen wounded out of the 16,000 British troops engaged. The Abyssinians lost 700 killed and 1,400 wounded.
