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.

Lieut-Col. A. M. Carthew-Yorstoun Black Watch - wounded Paardeberg


"Colonel Carthew-Yorstoun handled the Black Watch "in a very clever way", moving part of his men up a steep kloof, while the naval guns and the remainder of the infantry kept down the Boer fire. The attack was successful beyond the most sanguine expectations, and the Boers fled. In his telegram of 5th May Lord Roberts said, "The Black Watch distinguished themselves, and were very skilfully led".

2nd Lieut. M. E. Carthew-Yorstoun was with the 67th Regiment (South Hampshire), 40th Brigade.
(Source: Hart’s Army List, 1884)

On the medal roll for the South Africa Medal he is a 2nd Lieut with the 1st Battalion / 24th Regiment. Entitled to medal with clasp “1879” for service against the Zulu. At the time his medal was delivered to him he was back with the 40th Brigade.
(South Africa Medal Roll)

It looks like he was with the drafts for the 1st/24th that came out to South Africa on the steamer “Clyde.”

Gents I have moved this topic to "DID THEY OR DIDN'T THEY TAKE PART IN THE ZULU WAR" as there seems to be a lot of confusion to who's who.. The person inquestion is "Major Morden Ewart Carthew-Yotstoun"

I think i'm right in saying the photo of the person posted by LH.
(Lieut-Col. A. M. Carthew-Yorstoun Black Watch - wounded Paardeberg) is also not the man inquestion.

Hi All Again
Follow up to my previous post
If you tap in your search box
Family History at Le Grand jas Cemetery-Cannes tourist information
and then tap on
Full list of graves
you will find his burial details
remember we are looking for Morden Ewart Car-Yors not Archibald [black watch] or Modern [his fathers name]
one detail it gives, is him being in the Bombay Cavalry which could tie in with Graves1879 post of him being in the bombay staff corps.
