Cairns never rose above the rank of Private and was eventually discharged on 10/11/1885, after 21 years and 240 days with the colours. In addition to service at home, service papers confirm 9 years and 230 days in India and 6 years and 245 days in South Africa, the latter period of overseas service being from 26/2/1879 to 28/10/1885. Cairns
was discharged as a result of the "termination 2nd period limited engagement. The 58th Foot also saw service during the Firs Boer War 1880-81.

Looking at Cairn's service record he wouldnt have landed in Sth Africa till August if not Sept ! , well and truly after Ulundi which was July 4th , he was still in the UK when that battle took place . I think the war actually ended in September .
