Going through a box of odds and sods in my collection I came across this from the Journal of the South Wales Borderers, April 1940:-

"No922 25th Bde Private G. Edwards (alias Orchard) died at his home, Paulton, near, Bristol on 14th February and was buried there on the 18th February. Mr Orchard was one of the survivors of the Defence of Rorke's Drift, and joined the Regiment on the 24th Nov 1876, being discharged at Brecon on November 1886. He was 84 years of age.
During the South African War, he joined the Royal Defence Corp in March 1900 until March 1901.
A Firing Party, bearers and buglers were supplied with his funeral by the Gloucestershire Regiment, and among the wreaths were:-
(a) From B Coy 2/24th Regt. (his old Coy.)
(b) From the survivors of the action -
Lt.Col.F. Bourne, Dr P. Hayes, Ptes W. Cooper, J. Dunbar, T. Lockhart and J. Thomas.

Mr C. Moore, another Zulu veteran, died at Norwich on 18th February and was buried there on the 20th February. He was 81 years of age and joined the Regiment at the age of 16 in 1875. He also served in the South African War 1899-1902 and joined the Home Defence Force during the Great War"

As a RD defender there is plenty about George out there.
The other man, I'm assuming, is Private 2744 C. Moore of 2nd Battalion though it seems his first name is unknown as it is not shown in any medal rolls. Anyone any idea of his first name?

Kate,

Are you becoming an American?  What is with this ‘Pvt’ business?  Don’t you mean Pte.?

There is also a reference further down the page to:-
"Lt.Col. Alfred Godwin Godwin Austin who died at Surbiton on the 11the December aged 95 and was buried at Brookwood Cemetery on the 14th December, He transferred to the Regiment as a captain from the 89th Foot, 22/5/75; Major 1/7/81; retired 30/5/85.
His son A.R. is still on the active list and received congratulations on his promotion in our last number"
