Hope this is of some help .

90th,

I'm pretty certain his grave stated J. Kelleher when I saw it back in 1991, although I appreciate what is on the Medal Roll, but Norris-Newman recording it from the official posted casualty roll also records it as James Kelleher. The DAG list in The Red Book also shows it as James Kelleher.

The London Gazette of 5th March 1879, also shows J. Kelleher. Again based on William Bellairs' report.

Because of the evidence showing J(ames) rather W. I chose to record it in They Fell Like Stones as J. Kelleher.

Free1954,

In virtually forgotten place, just off of the R68 road in a ditch beside a sugar cane field at Nyezane, where the battle was fought.

Free1954,

I have just had a friend of mine in that neck of the woods, he tells me the memorial that was erected in the 1990's shows the name as James Kelleher.
