Lt. Col. Pulleine: His Lordship is of the cetain opinion that it's far too difficult an approach to be chosen by the Zulu command. Col. Durnford: Yes, well... difficulty never deterred a Zulu commander.

Just flicking through the pages of Lt Wilfred Heaton’s Dairy (For Queen and Country)

He writes: Thursday 10 April

Flogging Parade Jones & Hellet: There is no other information other than this. Does anyone have any information regarding the offence that led to the flogging of Jones & Hellet?

Hi Admin

I am unable to find a Hellet listed on any of the rolls and there are too many Jones's listed to find a Jones without a first name.

Do you have any other information to go along with what you have already, like a date this took place?

Thursday 10th April 1879..

I'm now wondering if I have miss-understood the context of Flogging. As he seems to mentioned quite a lot about the selling off the equipment from those killed at Isandlwana.

There is also a very good entry, regarding what they thought of Chelmsford & Durnford at Isandlwana.

On the subject of flogging.Im sure I saw or read somewhere that during the zulu war or at least 1879, floggings in the army went though the roof.The reason given that the moral of the men suffered which led to bad discipline. I once saw a poster on the door of a mess room on board a RN ship on which my son was serving. it stated "The floggings will continue until moral improves".Joking aside anybody got any info on the numbers of floggings and the reasons for it?

Thanks

Pete,

Privates Charles Jones and William Hellett, both of the 24th, were court-martialed at Helpmakaar on 9 April, 1879.  They were both charged with being “drunk on duty,” sentenced to “50 lashes,” and “fined £1.”  It appears that Hellett had 25 lashes remitted.

Hi All

I was unable to find a Hellet listed on the medal roll. He is listed incorrectly as W. Hillet, so he is listed on the medal roll.
Private 1680 William Hellett, 1st Battalion 24th (The 2nd Warwickshire) Regiment.

There are three Charles Jones listed on the medal roll.

Private 1253 Charles Jones, 2nd Battalion 24th (The 2nd Warwickshire) Regiment.
Private 25B/141 Charles Jones, 1st Battalion 24th (The 2nd Warwickshire) Regiment.
Private 25B/1059 Charles Jones, 2nd Battalion 24th (The 2nd Warwickshire) Regiment.

I can rule out Private 1253 Charles Jones as I have his service record and does not state he was court-martialled for "dunk on duty" he was court- martialled for "Desertion" in March 1879.

So now that leaves Private 25B/141 Charles Jones and Private 25B/1059 Charles Jones.

Frank,

I am afraid I could find nothing on you first post regarding Pte. D. Evans.  However, the information in you post is the same as what would have appeared in the courts-martial summary.

As for the second post, I read the name as "Lewis James."  I am having trouble reading the next line below his name.  Any idea what that says?

Tom

Hi Frank

I think that says (something, perhaps Lieuts.?) James and next to it sloping down across the top right corner I think it says James Bassage. Further down on the left (again sloping) it says Edward Bassage. And then centre page it says John Bassage twice and J Bassage. How many Bassages were there?

Hi POT

Our posts crossed. I think the line below is (something perhaps Jacob?) Bassage.
Has anyone transcribed the Bassage notebook?

I don't know if Bassage was just practicing penmanship, I tended to connect the name at the top with the passage on the drunkenness.
I have to admit I haven't delved to deeply yet into the diary
