Zulu Dawn Film Lt. Col. Pulleine: Lord Chelmsford assures us that there is no way the Zulu can get around us without our knowing. Col. Durnford: Zulu generals have a nasty habit of doing the unexpected. It might be wise to picket the hills.

PostSubject: Final research query, Netley & Kneller Hall   Sun Oct 28, 2018 10:44 pm

Having finally copied what I needed about the 24th from TNA at Kew ( with a big thank you to Martin for his tips and pointers!) I am hoping to top off my research by checking out a few of the places where some men were detached to ie: Netley, Kneller Hall, Hythe and Gosport. I am hoping some of the more knowledgeable amongst you would be able to help with the following:

I have the references for the Gosport Discharge Depot 1875 -1881 The School of Musketry Hythe 1872-1880 and some for Royal Victoria Hospital at Netley 1872 upto March 1878 (WO 12/13093-13105) but for the life of me I cannot get any hits from April 1878 onwards for Netley, I assume it would be in the WO 16 series but no luck.

I also cannot find anything for the School of Music at Kneller Hall, did it have any muster books?

One last question, before the 2nd Battalion returned to the UK in 1873, where were the Depot companies located,who were they with and what would their reference come under?

In 1969 the School moved from Hythe to Warminster, Wiltshire where Headquarters S.A.S.C. remains to this day.
