Very sadly we will never know what company most 1/24th men were attached as all the records were lost on the battlefield at Isandlwana.

However with that said, some are identifiable in Norman Holmes book 'The Silver Wreath' by company but interestingly they all appear to have been in 'H' company.

Of course any 2/24th man is easily identified as being with Pope's 'G' Company in the battle.

Greetings all.

Couple of things;

1. - I offered £7.5K for this medal, which has been declined.

2. - there were many boys from the 2nd Btn 24th who were killed on the Isandhlwana battle field; conversely, how many soldiers of the 1/24th were out with Chelmsford's column at the time?

A fair number of the 1st Btn were NOT killed on the battlefield on that day. If they were not on the battlefield on that day, they were either in Chelmsford's column or elsewhere, but where else might they have been? Sorry if I appear to be a complete novice in this area - well I am actually - but i have read that 1st btn were in the camp at Isandhlwana, but the 2nd were out in Chelmsford's column, but it is not as cut and dried as that, is it?

At the battle of Isandlwana were,

- 5 companies of 1st Battalion, the 24th Foot
- 1 company of 2nd Battalion, the 24th Foot

Off hand, without referring to my books there were something like 400+ members of the 1/24 and approx. 170 members of the 2/24 killed in the battle. Six members of the 1/24 survived the battle and none from 'G' Comapny 2/24.
