Hi

According to some information that Petty Officer Tom sent me, a Colour Sgt Anthony Booth was court martialled (but acquitted) on February 7th 1879.

At iNtombi, he was I believe Sgt Booth – only promoted after the battle.

Has anyone an idea if this was just an error in the info about the court martials of the 80th or was he reduced for some ‘crime’?

Cheers

Simon

Simon,

Anthony Clarke Booth was appointed as a Colour Sergeant on 3rd April 1876.

He reverted to the rank of Sergeant on 11th February 1879.

He was appointed - again - as a Colour Sergeant on 13th March 1879, in lieu of Colour Sergeant Henry Frederick, who was killed in action at Ntombe 12th March 1879.

Best I can do I'm afraid.

John Y.

Thanks a lot John

I find it interesting that he was court martialled on the 7th of Feb and reverted to Sgt, 4 days later.

I don't mean to be thick but could a Col Sgt request or ask to be reduced to Sgt (for whatever reasons).

Cheers

Simon
