Still worth following this medal to a "doctor" of the 24th.: 510 DR.F. McCABERY 24TH REGT .
Seems to be much more accurately described this time!

http://www.ebay.co.uk/itm/ORIGINAL-RARE-ZULU-WAR-CAMPAIGN-MEDAL-1879-BAR-/360475425769?pt=UK_Collectables_Militaria_LE&hash=item53ee027be9

I think it was established that this medal was renamed and no one of this name could be found on the roll.
Is anyone able to say which soldier of the 1st or 2nd 24th did have the number 510?

Hi Tasker .
It may not be ' Doctor ' its possible it may be ' Drummer ' . Needless to say I didnt find this surname in any of the 24th's Rolls .
Cheers 90th. Salute

DR could even be for Driver, maybe he was a driver in the RE or RA and had the 24th regt put on his medal, it sounds more interesting to the 24th than the RE or RA, just a thought!!!!! Salute
