From the website.

"There is no indication of where this board comes from. A number of the persons named enlisted in Melbourne and appeared to have been born or lived in inner suburbs such as Fitzroy, Collingwood and Brunswick. There is no obvious connection with Bendigo.!

Can it be confirmed if a F.R. Bowery did take part in the Zulu War. We know he wasn't awarded a VC.

Hi Littlehand.
Sorry mate , it was my lame attempt at humour . :lol!: :lol!: Rolling Eyes . Due to the fact that there wasnt a Bowrey at R.D and he certainly was never awarded the V.C .
cheers 90th.
