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"

Charles Moore was my great great great grandfather. Going through some of my dad's pictures I found an article from 1987 regarding a relative on a different branch of the family trying to locate the whereabouts of the meddles of Charles. I've not heard of this relative before to be honest, only started looking him up after finding the article.

Hi JDurrant,
Sorry to disappoint you but the newspaper article seems to be dressing up Charles Moore’s involvement in the Zulu War I believe (as reporters often did sadly). He certainly was not a Rorkes Drift defender during the battle on 22/23rd Jan 1879, although he may well have passed through there at some point. That said the medal roll says he was entitled to to South Africa Medal without clasp which means he did not cross over the border into Zululand and probably served in Natal somewhere in the latter stages of the war. If he was only on the 2/24th pay strength from 17/7/1879 the war was all over bar the shouting by then.

Nevertheless a great photo of your relative. He deserved a medal for sporting a moustache like that!! :)

Regards. Phil.
