PostSubject: Connaught Rangers attached to the Active Naval Brigade   Mon Jul 04, 2011 10:23 pm

Fleet-Surgeon Norbury mentions that fifty men of the Connaught Rangers (88th Foot), commanded by Lt. John Thirkill, were attached to the Naval Brigade during their Service in the 9th Frontier War.

Does anybody know what company of the 88th Thirkill was assigned to/commanding, before he was transport officer for No.1 Column during the Zulu War? I think it was Company B, but I am not sure. Also, is there any chance somebody would have a list of whom in the 88th Foot was awarded the South Africa campaign medal for 1877-1878?

Thanks,
Rob Herrick
