Hi Littlehand.
Rotheby's Horse doesnt get a mention in the Forsyth Medal Roll , so I'd say its a definite no for the zulu war !.
Cheers 90th Very Happy

Little hand have had a quick look through the original rolls couldn't see anything. Have a couple of other places I can look at tomorow. Will get back to you - I also have the egypt medal roll in the office so that might help.

Do you have a regimental number for him?

littlehand,

From the “Advisor” Adelaide, South Australia 31 May, 1921

“Veterans Reunions

“THE GOVERNOR AND THE CONVENTIONS.

“The annual reunion of the naval and military active service veterans resident in South Australia was held at the Prince of Wales Hotel on Monday.”

Among the names listed was:

“S. E. Hull, sergeant, Rotheby's Horse, Zulu war; Egypt, 1882;”

Hi All .
I cant find Rotheby's Horse in any of the AZW books I have . As for S.E. Hull I checked the Forsyth Medal Roll and the closest I can find is .T.E.Hull 1879 Clasp , Trpr 3rd Cape Mtd Yeomanry , Medal returned to Woolwich Mint .Possibly Rotheby's Horse was the unit he was in during his Egypt Campaign of 1882 ?. Salute
Cheers 90th.

All I can find is a fictional Lord Rotheby who appears in a couple of obscure novels, a village in Leicestershire named Rotherby and the town of Rothbury in the NE of England! scratch
