Was this former member of the 24th in the Zulu War?

Henry Rattray, pensioner (24th Regiment of Foot) killed in bombing of Royal Hospital Chelsea, 16 April, 1941 at age 100.

Hi Petty Officer Tom

I have checked for the name Rattray and like 90th cannot find that name listed anywhere.

So I would have to say that he did not take part in the Zulu war.
