Thanks 90th.

Hi. E.H. I sometimes get e-mails from friends who sent me bits about the Zulu War. Sometimes I post them, sometimes not. I mainly post these items for reference purposes, in the event someone is looking for a particular persons/ regiment ECT.

Does anyone know when 11/7 Battery arrived in South Africa and when its tour of duty ended?

Following doesn't answer your question directly. N5 arrived in January 1878 (Maj. Gen. Dalton RA Journal) . Many officers and men of 11/7 received the 77/78 bar for action against the Galekas (medal roll) as well as the Zulus in '79, so it seems likely they arrived at the same time as N5.

I don't believe they did arrive at the same time as N/5. I think they were there much earlier than Jan '78.
I just can't seem to find out exactly when!
