Lt. Melvill: Well done, Sir! Did you see that Noggs? Deceived him with the up and took him with the down. Norris-Newman: Well well, this one\'s a grandfather at least. If he\'d been a Zulu in his prime I\'d have given odds against your lancer, Mr.Melvill.

PostSubject: Missing page paylist 1/24th   Sat Aug 11, 2018 4:10 pm

Afternoon all,

In early July I took photographs of the paylist of the 1/24th paylist WO 16/1574 1st April to 30th September 1879 I have taken quite a few photo's of paylists so it's taken a while to get to check this one.

Sadly there appears to be a missing page listing the Sergeants. It jumps from page 6 (pencilled number top left of page),  starting with 1790 Bond William to page 8 Sgt Beard (attached Sgts). I have checked the remarks column opposite and it doesn't seem to match up so it's not a mis-numbering as happens later in the book.

Does anyone have a transcription or have taken a photo with the page intact? I'm not sure if it is deliberate or just fallen out, a couple of the pages are quite tattered.

Regards,

Bill

It WAS there when I went through them all back in the 80s. I didn't copy them all sadly, merely checked there were no additions or removals of individuals from quarter to quarter. Forgive the obvious, have you checked it hasn't fallen out and been inserted either elsewhere in the paylist or in one of the NEXT two paylists?
Failing that, ask at the desk to see if it's been put somewhere safe and is awaiting being re-sewn into the book.

Julian,

Thanks, yes I've checked all my photos of the paylists before and after, nothing there. The paylist from April 1880 onward has printed numbers anyway. Looking closely I can see the remnants of the page in the centre fold. I'm visiting Kew again on Saturday so will ask at the desk, if I have time I'll try and re-order it to check again especially as I seem to have missed page 39 Privates "M"... rather careless.

Essentially I was checking on the return dates of the Mounted Infantry, I have your articles on the 1st Squadron in Soldiers Of The Queen 58/59 and Studies in The Zulu War Vol 2. I was hoping to see if I could identify the 17 men under Lt Clements who joined Pearson's column, and the 20 reinforcements who joined the 1st Squadron, as mentioned in the Historical Records of the 24th pg 221/222

I may be able to help you there. I'm hoping I still have the information. It would be unlike me to throw info away though it may be 'buried'. Give me a few days to see if I can find it.
My Mounted Infantry article in SOTQ had some typos in it in the printing AND I have since updated it and added the 2nd squadron's info - all of which I hope to include as a 'new' revamped essay for Studies in the Zulu War VI or VII.
