PostSubject: Royal Artillery deaths in Zululand 1879   Mon Nov 25, 2013 9:16 pm

Hello all,

I've recently come across a photo of a memorial on the island of St. Helena which includes the following inscription;

GUNR E. FLANAGAN
DIED IN ZULULAND
3RD MAY 1879
AGED 21 YEARS

CORPL G. OLDEN
DIED IN ZULULAND
8TH MAY 1879
AGED 29 YEARS

I have found both in the medal roll under 7th Bde No.8 Bty, & both are listed as 'Died on Service' (although Cpl Olden is spelt 'Oldin').
However, neither appears on the Regimental Afghanistan/South Africa 1877-81 Memorial at Larkhill - does anyone have any information on these two men, as it seems strange that they are not commemorated...

Regards,

Tim

I don't know if this is a coincidence but there is a Gunner E Flanagan RGA on the British Legion Memorial in Salford.
There are records here but I cant access [You must be registered and logged in to see this link.]
