Lt. Melvill: Well done, Sir! Did you see that Noggs? Deceived him with the up and took him with the down. Norris-Newman: Well well, this one's a grandfather at least. If he'd been a Zulu in his prime I'd have given odds against your lancer, Mr.Melvill.

"William John Nettleton is listed on Everson’s South Africa 1853 medal under the Commissariat Department as “Clerk W. Nettleton” for the 1851/53 campaign. He remained in South Africa serving with this Department and later moved to Port Elizabeth. He served during the later Gaeka Gaeleka war, the Forsyth medal roll listing him as Captain, Port Elizabeth Volunteer Horse and qualifying for the SAGS medal with bar 1877-8-9. He later served again during the Zulu War as Commandant of the 2nd Battalion, Natal Native Contingent which was later re-designated as the 5th Battalion. Once again his name is listed on the SAGS medal roll for the bar 1879 and it is probable that a duplicate issue of SAGS medals were issued. After the war he served for a short period as a Magistrate in Basutoland but did not live long enough to qualify for the award of the Cape of Good Hope General Service medal. He was born in Bradford Yorkshire in 1833 and died at Port Elizabeth in January 1897".
