Hi All

A long time ago, Our Member 24th stated the following
Quote :
There must be documented evidence, or some other source where the flogging were recorded. It would be interesting to find out the Names, regiments and the offence these individuals committed to warrant the punishment of flogging.

I am more than happy to start a list Idea

Hi 1879Graves .

I will attempt to search through some books to see if indeed there are any names and details given .

1879graves,

I don't have any names of soldiers who were flogged , but here is an entry from the diary of Henry Eason who was a Chief Petty Office and part of the naval brigade from HMS Shah.

Monday, 28 April 1879
This is a very dull day. The 57th has just flogged one of their men. There are one or two soldiers being flogged every day, while I am glad to say our men are quite a credit to the Service as to character. The commander has not had a crime brought before him yet, and I hope it will continue so. (THE DIARY OF SIGNAL BOSUN HENRY EASON” from THE NAVAL MISCELLANY, VOLUME VII)

This gives an idea of the number and frequency of incidents of flogging.

Petty Officer Tom

Hi all.
This from ' Companion To The Anglo Zulu War ' by Ian Knight .
25 / 2 / 79 Pvt. Woodman 2 / 3rd Regt was given 50 lashes at Ft. Pearson for leaving his post while on sentry duty . He was flogged
by the ' Drummers ' Reilly & White . The proceedings were watched by Lt. Julius Backhouse who said '' They never hurt him at all ''
The footnote says this was from the ' Diary Of Lt. Julius Backhouse , 3rd Regt , National Army Museum .
cheers 90th.

Hi all.
I've checked a few books since my Woodman post but havent found anymore , what I did find from Ian Knights ' Companion
to the Anglo Zulu War ' that it was happening more than one would think . I'll try a few more books over the next day or so
and see what turns up. Idea

Hi all!

I found an incident in “The National Army Museum Book of The Zulu War” by Ian Knight. It is from the diary of Lieutenant Julius Backhouse, 3rd Regiment (Buffs) and appears to have occurred on, or before, 9 Jan 1879.

“Privates Craney H Company and Bowman G Company flogged for drunkenness 25 lashes each, it did not affect either of them at all”

On page 54 of Terry Sole's recently published book on the Colonials in the Zulu War he records that two men of the 1st King's Dragoon Guards received 50 lashes each for stealing from, and vandalising the premises of a blacksmith, who was serving in the Buffalo Border Guard. The blacksmith also received six pounds in compensation from the Colonel of the regiment.

Hi all.
Someone asked a while ago about the numbers of those flogged in the zulu war . This from ' Guidebook
to the Anglo Zulu War Battlefields ' by David Rattray & Adrian Greaves .
'' Within the british army flogging was still regularly practiced ; out of 20,000 soldiers who took part in the campaign , records reveal that 545 were flogged , with 25 lashes being the norm '' .
cheers 90th. Idea

Graves, where's that David Jenkins fellow who claim"s to have been at Rorkes Drift. I'm sure he was punished for desertion or similar.
