Hi Littlehand

There are only five people listed on the Medal Roll with the surname English. I am unable to find a Howard listed.

On checking his name, I came across this article which clams he was at Rorke's Drift as a Defender scratch

He could have enlisted under an alias?

Kris Wheatley might be able to help out here Idea

hi Graves .
I went through Kris Wheatley's books and no mention of an 'English ' . I also went through Julian Whybra's ' Englands Sons '
also drew a blank on English . Suspect .
cheers 90th.

Hi Pete
I wonder if JW has actually found any evidence recently of English taking part in the defence of RD .
