Return from Zululand Private LETHBRIDGE, of the 13th Light Infantry, and Corporal BERRY, of the 1st Battalion 24th Regiment. LETHBRIDGE

"Wednesday 22 October 1879, Issue 5984 -
Crediton - Return from Zululand
A public luncheon took place on Monday in honour of two natives of the town who have seen actual service in the Zulu War - viz., Private LETHBRIDGE, of the 13th Light Infantry, and Corporal BERRY, of the 1st Battalion 24th Regiment. LETHBRIDGE was present at Kambula, and fought in the square at Ulundi, but came out of both engagements without injury. A committee of working men raised a sum sufficient to purchase two handsome watches for presentation. BERRY is still in Natal, having bought his discharge at the close of the campaign, and Colonel Buller has consented to transmit his townsmen's gift. LETHBRIDGE arrived from Plymouth on Monday afternoon, having with difficulty obtained a short leave of absence in order to be present. He was met at the railway station by the members of the Testimonial Committee and other townsfolk, who greeted him with loud cheers, and he was then escorted to the Royal Public Rooms, the band of the volunteer Engineers and the subscription band accompanying the procession. At the Public rooms, Private LETHBRIDGEW was entertained. Sir John Shelley and Colonel Buller, C.B., V.C., took part in the demonstration and after the luncheon, at which over 200 persons were present, the gallant Colonel undertook the task of presenting the testimonial. Colonel Buller, in a brief speech, welcomed Private LETHBRIDGE to his native town, and again took the opportunity of acknowledging the services of the rank and file during the late campaign. In the course of his remarks he referred to the sneering paragraphs which had appeared in the public Press, and said he regarded these presentations as a healthy sign of the working of the short-service system, which was bringing the people more in contact with the army than used to be the case."

I’m really new, how difficult was it to advance to corporal? I believe my Henry only served a few years before he was discharged and emigrated to Canada.
Also, can I reference information by using the three digit regimental service number?

Thank you for your help.
