Shouldn't be to hard. I'm sure someone will come up with something! here's some infoe.

BEAUFORT RANGERS
"HQ at Fort Beaufort. CO was Captain B. W. Hall who was succeeded in February, 1878, by Captain J. Richards. Strengths from August, 1877, to June, 1880, varied from 3 and 50 to 4 and 74 and the arms from August, 1877, as 50 Snider carbines and 21 short rifles, to 66 carbines and 2 short rifles in June, 1880. 10 men left for the front on 10th October, 1877, and in January there was 1 officer there and 3 men. In that month the men were all mounted but due to drought the horses were in poor condition, aggravated by patrols and escorts of ammunition wagons. In April escorts and patrols continued, with 6 men away at the front and others serving as officers of Fingo levies. Yet others were absent with their stock. In May some were on operations in the Perie Bush, those with the levies were still absent and the balance of the corps was on operations in the Fort Beaufort area.

BEAUFORT WEST RIFLES

Noted in December, 1878, as a new corps at Beaufort West with 5 officers and 43 men, armed with long Sniders."

Anthony,

The Beaufort Rangers were not a Zulu War unit.

They were raised in Cape Colony for service against the amaXhosa in the Eastern Cape in the 9th Cape Frontier War.

Lieutenant E.P. Solomon received the bar 1877-8.

Anthony,

If you do go on to the VWF, can I suggest you enter your query on the Cape Frontier Wars section. Where you might illicit a response from one of the two Cape Frontier Wars authors that we have on that forum.

If the Edward Solomon that littlehand posted is the correct person, Edwards entire family tree can be found on ancestry, his paternal tree goes back as far as 1735 to Nathaniel Solomon and his wife Phoebe de Mitz, Phobe de Mitz's family tree goes back to 1700 to Menahem Emanuel de Metz.
