I was wondering whether anyone has any further information relating to the following individuals named Broderick who appear as 2/3 NNC Isandlwana casualties in a number of publications including Julian's England's Sons & John's They Fell Like Stones:
1) Sgt Broderick A
(Also listed in Forsyth's medal roll under Pulleine's Rangers as Private BRODEROCK A)
Some time ago I was in touch with the archivist at Hurstpierpoint College in Sussex, and she informed me that according to her records one former pupil who attended the school from 1875 to 1877 moved to S Africa and was killed at Isandlwana - his name was ALAN BRODRICK.
2) Sgt Broderick M
(Also listed in Forsyth's medal roll under Buffalo Volunteer Rifles & Levy)
A memorial in East London City Hall, South Africa, commemorates various volunteer casualties and includes a Sergeant J Broderick of the Buffalo Volunteer Rifles killed at Isandlwana - presumably the initial 'J' was inscribed in error and should have been 'M'? (Thanks to forum member Rai for finding this memorial on the Genealogical Society of South Africa website).
Terry Sole's For God, Queen & Colony offers first names for the two individuals above as Alfred & Martin respectively, and that Alfred was Martin's uncle; however, I would be interested to know if there is any further evidence that Alfred Broderick & Alan Brodrick are the same person, and that there was indeed a family connection to M Broderick?
