I thought that this medal has been posted before, but I did a quick search and could not find it. So at the risk of duplicating posts, here is what I have on Likeman.

William Likeman
Private serving on HMS Boadicea (Corvette, Flag Ship, Cape of Good Hope and West Coast of Africa) served with the Naval Brigade landed 18 Mar 79 for the Zulu War. Accompanied the Eshowe Relief Column, and was present at the Battle of Gingindlovu where he would have been stationed in the front left corner of the square. Later landed with the Naval Brigade for the action at Batanga, on the West Coast of Africa, where he was killed on 22 Mar 80. Entitled to the South Africa Medal with clasp “1879”; the medal was sent to his mother.
