PostSubject: Charles Bliss Parke Hume, Lieutenant, R.N.   Tue May 14, 2013 7:55 pm

Was he, or wasn’t he, in the Zulu War?

Lieutenant Charles Bliss Parke Hume was assigned to HMS Tenedos on 13 November, 1878. (He probably joined the ship at Simon’s Bay about a month later.)

He is on the Navy List for 20th December, 1878 as a Lieutenant on HMS Tenedos at the Cape of Good Hope and West Coast of Africa Station. He is also on the Navy Lists for 20th March, 1879 and 20 December, 1879.

In the “War and Meritorious Service” section of the Navy List for January, 1881 he is listed as “Hume, C. B. P., Lieutenant of ‘Tenedos’ during the Zulu War of 1879.” In the Navy List for 1883 and 1884 he is again listed, but with the addition of “Zulu Medal.”

The first page on the Medal Roll (the one on CD) for HMS Tenedos is missing. (This is the page that contained the names of most of the ship’s officers.) A later copy of the Medal Roll, which shows when the medals were delivered, omits his name.

Even though he is not on the Medal Roll, it appears that he is entitled to the South Africa Medal, without clasp.

Is he listed on the Forsyth Roll?
