"It is interesting to speculate whether the recipient was a relative of his Commanding Officer, Lieutenant-Colonel Frederick Weatherley, and his two sons, both of whom served as officers in the Border Horse. One of them, and the Colonel, fell at Inhlobane Mountain on 28 March 1879, a disastrous encounter that resulted in 17 officers and 82 other ranks being killed, besides many more wounded, most of the fatalities being inflicted on Buller’s force during its headlong flight down “The Devil’s Pass”. Of these fatalities, five were officers and 42 N.C.Os or other ranks from the Border Horse. In fact such was the carnage caused by the Zulus’ assegais that they renamed Inhlobane the “Stabbing Mountain."

Hi All .
J. Weatherley is certainly in the Medal Roll and is entitled to the '' Zulu War '' medal with 1879 Clasp . No mention of him in
For God , Queen & Colony by Terry Sole , it seems there are a few names missing from the Sole book that are in the Forsyth Roll
with the surname beginning with ' W' . Suspect .
cheers 90th. scratch
