A quick check of the Medal Roll shows he is entitled to the Medal with Clasp 1879 . Do you know of him Petty Officer Tom ?
Cheers 90th.

90th,

His compass sold last month on E-Bay. Admin has added his memorial plaque to the forum, so you can see the rank he achieved. I've got a photograph and a couple engravings of him, but my scanner is down at present.

The South African Campaign of 1879 by MacKinnon & Shadbolt:
Accompanied the Eshowe Relief Column; was present at the Battle of Gingindhlovu, and accompanied the Brigade to Port Durnford. Time spent on shore from 19th March 1879 - 6th August 1879.


In Zululand Throughout the War of 1879 by Norris Newman:
On Tuesday 18th another Naval Brigade was landed from the ‘Boadicea’, which had lately arrived to take her place as flag-ship of the Cape station, instead of HMS ‘Active’, ordered home; and on the next day the 57th and 91st Regiments both sent off large detachments en route for the Lower Tugela. They proceeded to Saccharine Station as far as the coastline then extended, a distance of about twelve miles from Durban, and then marched the rest of the way (fifty-two miles.) Thursday saw the departure of the Naval Brigade of HMS ‘Boadicea’ in a pouring rain. It numbered 238 men, who had with them one Gatling Gun, and one field piece, the men being armed with Martini-Henry Rifles. They were, as most men of all the Naval Brigades are, a fine, sturdy lot of fellows, and left in the highest of spirits. Lieutenant F R Carr was in command, and the other officers were Lieutenants E C Hobkirk, J B Benett; Sub-Lieutenants H F Lyon, H Coachworth; Midshipman Warrener, Honourable Colville, Hewitt, and Cruikshank.

His brother also served in campaign, as one of the draft replacement officers for the 1st/24th.

His career is well covered here:

http://www.1879zuluwar.com/t2995-admiral-sir-stanley-cecil-james-colville-gcb-gcmg-gcvo?highlight=colville

The only thing I can add is that Midshipman Colville was not part of the original crew of HMS Boadicea that left England in November, 1878 to replace HMS Active as flag sh1p at the Cape.  He was appointed to “Boadicea” on 17 January, 1879 and arrived in time to be assigned to that ship’s contingent to the Naval Brigade on 18 March under the command of Lieutenant F. R. Carr.  Colville was with the Eshowe Relief Column under Lord Chelmsford, and was present at the Battle of Gingindlovu.  Afterwards he was part of the “Boadicea” contingent, now under Commander Romilly, serving at Fort Chelmsford.  In June Colville was included in that part of the Naval Brigade that accompanied General Crealock on the march to Port Durnford, where he remained until the men of HMS Boadicea were ordered back to their ship.  The “Boadicea” men embarked on the hired transport “City of Venice” on the 27th of July and sailed to Simons’ Bay where they rejoined their ship on 6 August, 1879.  For his service in the Zulu War Midshipman Colville received the South Africa Medal with the clasp “1879.”
