OBITUARY.
The death occurred recently of Mr. Francis James Mudd, at his home in Gladstone avenue, Magill, in his 74th year. Starting life in a biscuit factory, Mr. Mudd, who was born at Cambridge, England, next joined the South-Eastern and Chatham Railway Company as driver of a delivery van. At the age of 20 he joined the King's Rifles, and after training at Win- chester, sailed with his regiment to South Africa, and fought in the Zulu war. After his discharge he ob- tained employment with a railway company in South Africa, and later was employed in the dangerous task of carrying supplies to the British lines during the second Boer war. In 1907 he came to Australia, and was en- gaged as a miner at Broken Hill. After some time there he came to Adelaide, and evening obtained a position as caretaker at the Hackney Tram Depot, which he held for 19 years, until his retirement last February. He leaves two daughters. Mrs. C. Wheeldon, of Glanville, and Miss A. Mudd, of Murray Park"[/i]

There was a Lance Corporal 1259 J.Mudd that served in the Zulu War. This could be your man?
