Graves has a post about this a.k.a. McMillan? At work so can't give full answer or link just yet.

McMILLAN John – Private – 25B/2049 – 1st/24th
Service details: Arrived in South Africa with draft aboard the Transport Clyde from 50th Foot 46th Brigade Depot Maidstone, Kent 1/3/1879. Served in the Zulu War 1879.

Thanks to Graves report, Little was McMillan...but why should he change his name to McMillan in the transfer from one regt to another?

Thanks to Graves report, Little was McMillan...but why should he change his name to McMillan in the transfer from one regt to another?

He was McMillan from the beginning of his service in the 50th, as written in their pay-list WO 16/1800 Oct 78- Mar 79. From Grave's article it seems he was trying to hide his name from his mother. His service record as posted by Graves shows he had written his name on the first occurrence then crossed it out when he realised his error and substituted McMillan.

Actually I note that in all instances in his service papers his name is recorded not as McMillan but as McMillian - a one in a milliAn surname!

Sorry Andy I normally carry out a name search before posting up a new topic but being Little this one slipped through the net.
Heres the link to Andy's post
