Hello again from a newbie. I was amazed at the information you guys had on Trooper Flowers from the Colonial Light Horse- thanks very much!

I came across an 1879 South Africa medal with 77-78-79 bar to Sgt T Collins (214) from the 90th foot. I would assume that Sgt Collins was involved at Kambala and Ulundi, but don't have any verification or specific information.

Does anyone have any information from their sources about Sgt Collins?

Thanks again for any help!

Well hopefully not away forever.

I am a very patient fellow- I know it is an effort to look into these soldiers, so I appreciate the help if at all possible in the future. Hopefully you are on a nice vacation; I just got back from Rocky Mountain National Park- cool, but too crowded for my tastes.

Thanks for the rapid response!

Hi Johnman

I am only going to show what I have found and I am not going to make any statement about the medal.

This is from the 90th Medal Roll

The faded entries I am unable to read them.

I have not been able to find his service record but have found his later Militia service record.

Hi Andy,

Many thanks for the information that you have given me regarding Thomas Collins' Militia Record, very much appreciated, I have engaged the services of a professional researcher to search for his Army Record in the National Archives London and hope that his service record at the time of the Zulu War still exists, I will let you know what he finds.

Hi Andy,

Can I ask a further question, what is the Heading of the 90th Foot Medal Roll? the reason I ask is the columns of "Yes" against a Soldier's name, what do they signify?

Hi Andy,

I have got the results from the researcher and it appears that his Army Record no longer exists but he sent me the "Pay Lists and Muster Rolls" information regarding him and will try and insert a copy of what he has put together regarding his career, It looks like him being Sergeant on the Medal and Private on the Medal Roll will remain a mystery, I would appreciate your views on that subject (I am unsure how to send a copy of the document, could you let me know how that is done?
