Hi Saskia
I've checked the Forsyth Medal Roll , there's a Private C. Reed RMLI listed with the Active , but his medal entitlement is the Medal and Clasp 77-78 , so he didn't take part in the Zulu War .

Saskia,
Welcome to the forum!

Private, R.M.L.I., Charles Reed. Reister #814 (Chatham Division) did serve aboard HMS Active from 20 July 1877 to 25 October 1879. He was landed as part of the Naval Brigade in the operations against the Kafirs at the Cape from 16 December 1877 to 31 March 1878 for which he was entitled to the South Africa Medal with the “1877-78” clasp. He did serve aboard “Active” during the Zulu war, but remained aboard the ship during the war, thus depriving him of the “79” to his clasp.

His South Africa Medal was sent to him 19 September 1881 aboard HMS Pembroke.

His service record shows that he was also known as Charles Brunger.

Good Morning, Thank you so very much for this information most appreciated. Tom is there any possibility of telling me where I can view his service record as I would like to follow up on the other name Charles Brunger. This gentleman was my Great Grandfather. Again many thanks for your efforts on my behalf have a positive successful week.

Hi Tom

"His service record lists an alias of Charles Brunger"


That is why I could not find his service record.


Great work Tom.

Graves,

I can’t all the credit. Saskia provided the information on his marriage as well as the date and location. She also provided the information on his death and burial.

Hopefully one of the members who reside at the Cape can fill in Charles Reed’s time in South Africa from 1897 to 1914. His death certificate listed his occupation at Baggage Master, Capetown Station, S.A.R.
