PostSubject: 851 Private William Millership - 80th regiment    Sun Sep 25, 2011 2:36 pm

Hello everyone! Long time since ive posted here.

Ive just found out through researching the Millership family tree that we had a relative in the 80th regiment, which I was at the battle of Ulundi.

According to the roll, he was there and is entitled to the medal with 1879 bar if im correct.

So that means my GGG uncle (henry slade - 2/24th) killed at Isandlwana, and a relative (not sure how direct) who fought at Ulundi. First and last major battles of the Zulu war (if im correct in saying)

Just thought id like to share that with you all.

If anyone could tell me anything about William Millership, id be very grateful.

Many thanks

James Millership
