Hi Tim

I have not as yet visited his gravesite, one of the many I need to do.

I have just come across the following, an old soldier until the near end.

Tim and graves
I can add a little to that for you and for his grandson.  Still was in the 1st squadron IMI and appeared from Dec 1878 to March 1879 along with the rest of that unit in the paylists of the 1/13th WO16 1454 and 80th WO16 1982 to which regiments the IMI was attached.
He is also mentioned briefly on p. 93 of Newnham-Davis's book.  He was a drill sergt. brought out for the specific purpose of knocking the MI's slovenly drill into shape.
He appears in the muster roll and in the description of the exploits of the IMI in my article
January 1990 'No 1 Squadron Imperial Mounted Infantry May 1877 - January
1879' published in the Journal of the Victorian Military Society,
January, Issue 58/59.
This will be re-printed in a volume of Studies in the Zulu War volume.
So, thank you both, I have been trying unsuccessfully to find info on this individual since 1988.  The above paylists give his initials only and the surname is so poorly written and faded it can only just be made out.  What sound researchers you are!

Russell and Still's date of the transfer of their MI troop to the Central Column was 31.12.78 (i.e. its date of arrival at Helpmekaar).
