Did the Cape Yeomanry see any action in 1879?

Sixteen members of the 1st Cape Mounted Yeomanry were killed in action at Morosi's Stronghold 5 June 1879 along with seven members of the 2nd regiment.

Three hundred and six members of the unit received the Cape of Good Hope General Service Medal.[3] Captain AL Chiapini and Trooper E McGuire received the medal with all three clasps i.e. Transkei, Basutoland and Bechuanaland. The Cape Mounted Yeomanry was disbanded in 1881.

Hi Tasker .
They had a couple of cracks at Morosi's Mtn during 1879 , forced to retire I think first time around and then successful a couple of months later . They werent engaged against the Zulu .
