Zulu Dawn General Lord Chelmsford: For a savage, as for a child, chastisement is sometimes a kindness. Sir Henry Bartle Frere: Let us hope, General, that this will be the final solution to the Zulu problem.

Hi All

Again, all your suggestions are most welcome with this surname.

In D.R. Forsyth's Medal Roll, he lists him as J. Bosman, but I am not convinced.

Graves,

50th Brigade so you looking at either of the Middlesex Regiments: 57th (West) Middlesex or the 77th (East) Middlesex. Given that there were only a few 77th other ranks there as soldier-servants, I'd check the Muster Rolls of the 57th for that Brigade number.

Unfortunately I do not have access to the Muster Rolls for the 57th, that will have to wait until my lottery numbers come in. :lol!:

Graves,

We all have access to the 57th Pay & Muster roll as it is held at The National Archives, or is it the train journey you need the Lottery win for?

Hi Kwajimu1879

Petrol, train or bus and an overnight stay would need to be paid for, so the lottery win would sort that one out.
And I forgot another cost, having to take the wife shopping in London, now that would have to come from the lottery funding :lol!:
