I have been asked to find any information on a 3380 Pte. W. Hancock AHC. Who took part in the Zulu War? My local pub landlord has asked for the information, as he has just purchased a snuffbox or similar with this gents name on. So if you have any please post.

Hi

I have not researched this one yet, all I can tell you at this stage is that his first name was William.

Thanks for your reply Graves1879. His is number right 3380, Because we can't be sure if the 8 is really a six.

Hi Chelmsfordthescapegoat

I have checked the medal roll and his number is 3380 and his surname is spelt Handcock on the roll.
Could you ask the Landlord to have a look at the snuff box and see how his surname is spelt on the box?

I have only checked D.R. Forsyth's Medal Roll as I do not have a copy of the original Army Hospital Corps Roll. Sad
