Hi All.
Swb I agree , 850 Quid seems a lot , especially if he was one of the drafts sent out later !. As he wouldnt have seen any action
If I'm not mistaken .
cheers 90th.

You are right the late drafts didn't see any action (or any Zulus?). These men were also not the best soldiers in the British Army as they were "volunteered" by their COs to re-build the 1st bn and most were discharged on return to the UK.
