PostSubject: Help with the Medal Roll   Fri Jan 21, 2011 3:36 pm

The copy of the Medal Roll for the Zulu War that I have is missing some pages. I know there was more than one Medal Roll and was hoping that someone here might have a more complete copy.

If anyone can help, I am looking for the following:

HMS Tenedos: All Officers except for G. Springall, G. Whitting & C. James (Should have been the first 14 or 15 listed).

HMS Shah: The 14 names between John Byrne and Thomas Chapman

HMS Orontes: The 14 names between T. Hayward and C. B. Leonard

If I can get these names I should have a complete listing of all Navy & Marines entitled to the Medal for the Zulu War.

All help greatly appreciated,

Petty Officer Tom

CF71,

I don't know what happened, but I was not able to open the file (or even locate it) after downloading. I guess that is to be expected when you are old and computer illiterate.

Thanks for the effort.

if you are on a windows machine, it should show up in start--> recent documents/items

or you can just download it again - internet explorer should ask you to specify a location to save it

Hi CF71

That is a great link, thanks (I think that is just what P.O. Tom is looking for)

I will help P.O.Tom by email if he cannot find it, I will send him the images.

Many thanks again

John Heazle (The medal that my mother has) is the 3rd name in the image named page11

it looks like the crew and marines of HMS Boadicea remained in south africa until 1882 when a replacement crew arrived on HMS Thalia and they mostly received their medals after leaving HMS Boadicea (and after the 1st Boer war).

excerpt form service history of HMS Thalia (from http://www.pdavis.nl/ShowShip.php?id=132 )

10 January 1882
Commanded (from commissioning at Plymouth) by Captain Edmund John Church, to take a new crew to the Boadicea, at the Cape of Good Hope

30 March 1882 - 2 June 1882
Commanded (until paying off at Portsmouth) by Captain Frederick William Richards, returning home after paying off Boadicea at the Cape of Good Hope

CF71,

Downloaded it again. Works this time. It is just what I was looking for.

Thank you.

1879graves,

I appreciate your kind gesture, but no need now.
