Following the disaster at Isandlwana, Zululand on 22nd January 1879, an urgent request went out to rest of the Army for volunteers to reconstitute 1st Battalion 24th Regiment for 612 men of 24th Regiment killed on that fateful day.  Volunteers were promised that they would have the option of transferring to 24th Regiment or returning their parent regiment at the conclusion of the Zulu campaign.  On 1st March 1879, a ship transport ‘Clyde’ left Woolwich with draft of 534 volunteers under command Colonel Henry Davies, Grenadier Guards, for South Africa. [The names of these soldiers are listed on pay and muster rolls WO16/1573].

The draft included a number of officers and men from Brigade of Guards.  The names of these men also appear on the subsequent South Africa medal roll.

His son Randolph was a very respected RSM in Grenadier Guards in WW1 DCM and MM later commissioned as a Quartermaster. Served 1906 to 1945. I personally know his grandson - or John Beard’s great grandson.
