Lt. Melvill: Well done, Sir! Did you see that Noggs? Deceived him with the up and took him with the down. Norris-Newman: Well well, this one\'s a grandfather at least. If he\'d been a Zulu in his prime I\'d have given odds against your lancer, Mr.Melvill.

Can anyone confirm. William BOTTERILL was the last Zulu War Veteran to die in Durban, 1957. He was also Sir George White's batman. I sent an e-mail to a Kathryn Bax Who posted this on another forum in 2004. No reply....??

Hi Littlehand

In D.R. Forsyth's Medal Roll, he is listed as Private W Bothrell, 58th Regiment.

Having looked on the 58th Regiment Medal Roll, you can see how the mistake has happened.

[You must be registered and logged in to see this image.]

The only other information I can find is

A William Botterill, born 1860, died 1947, member of 1st Royal Inniskillings (Zulu War veteran) buried Military Cemetery, Durban, KwaZulu-Natal.

Hi sas1

Thanks for the kind comments.

I wish I did have all the medal rolls for each regiment that took part. I only have want is available on the market.

The 17th Lancers roll I have is very much incomplete. There are big sections missing.

The colonial rolls are also incomplete as they have all been destroyed.
