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.

LH,

Not knowing the date or source of your cutting, don't know why you source them!

There was a Private 25th Brigade/412 J Cassidy, 2nd/24th, who enlisted at Manchester, Lancashire on 24th July 1874, aged 22 years of age, who may be subject of the report.  According to Norman Holme's 'The Noble 24th' Cassidy had a connection to Brighton in 1881.

May be we should add him to the list of defenders as well, or may be not.

Sorry about that I'm sure I posted the link at the bottom. Doesn't seemed to have appeared.

Try again.

LH,

Cheers!  The date obviously fits in with 'The Noble 24th' mention.
