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.

Hi Littlehand

Now this one is a possible scratch

There is a Private (2056) R. Barnes, 17th Lancers listed on the Medal Roll with a Medal with 1879 Clasp.

The original 17th Lancers Roll I have in incomplete, so I am unable to check his first name.

Weren't the 17th Lancers part of the reinforcements that arrived in South Africa in April? Sgt. Barnes couldn't have been at Isandhlwana since the 17th was still in England at the time.

Hi Petty Officer Tom

You are correct.

This is another one of those Australian claims :lol!:

He still could have taken part in the Zulu War but not at Isandlwana.
