Thanks for the reply. I don't have anything at this time, but I guess I am hooked now as I am going back to my family records to see if I can find a link and more details.

Hi 24th .
No , I doubt it , as I'm aware of '' Key '' , not '' Keys '' , being a Rorkes Drift defender who was in the 24th and a Lce Sergeant to boot ! .
Although he was a Corporal at the time of the battle . Here is his Medal , I'm still thinking I've seen the Keay medal somewhere at sometime ! Suspect Suspect

Have you got some spare cash ? , maybe crack open the Piggy Bank . Salute
Cheers 90th.
