I have been asked to find any information on a 3380 Pte. W. Hancock AHC. Who took part in the Zulu War? My local pub landlord has asked for the information, as he has just purchased a snuffbox or similar with this gents name on. So if you have any please post.

Thanks for your reply Graves1879. His is number right 3380, Because we can't be sure if the 8 is really a six.

Hi Chelmsfordthescapegoat

I have checked the medal roll and his number is 3380 and his surname is spelt Handcock on the roll.
Could you ask the Landlord to have a look at the snuff box and see how his surname is spelt on the box?

I have only checked D.R. Forsyth's Medal Roll as I do not have a copy of the original Army Hospital Corps Roll. Sad
