Just to whet your appetite, I found this tucked away in a Royal Marines muster book at Kew today. It contains two lists of invalids being brought home on the troopship HMS Jumna in 1879. I doubt it has been seen before. More to follow.

PS Does anyone know anything about Chelmsford's cook?

Bonjour,
Chelmsford's cook during the first invasion was French. His name was Laparra and he was killed at Isandhlwana.

Steve,
To my knowledge his body has never been recognised but some papers belonged to him were found.

Hi Gary

Already copied to Tom with some other stuff. But the point is these invalids are from all regiments - somebody in the War Office just popped the envelope in the RM Muster Book because the Battalion was also on Jumna - nothing to do with the RM really. What else might be mis-filed I wonder? Will post later.

Steve,

I imagined it would have been The Admiralty, rather than The War Office.

Her Majesty’s Troopship Jumna was exactly as its designation infers, what you have chanced upon there - I would suggest - with the invalids is an additional passengers roll.

Regards,

JY

You are right John. The envelope even says "Admiralty" - getting senile.

90th,

What’s interesting Steve’s senility?

Steve,

I’m sure I’m already there myself...

Here are the two rolls contained in the envelope. Note the second is invalids being taken to the Royal Victoria Hospital Netley.

Interesting to see Lt. Carey and his escort listed as invalids.

Steve,

No I think The Bulldog of Eshowe might have had issues from the siege.

In time he would become Governor of Netley.

Thanks Steve , some information that'd certainly not have come to light in the near future , if anyone has one of these men's Campaign Medals at least they now have some information regarding '' their '' man or men . Salute
