Lieutenant John Chard: What's our strength? Lieutenant Gonville Bromhead: Seven officers including surgeon, commissaries and so on; Adendorff now I suppose; wounded and sick 36, fit for duty 97 and about 40 native levies. Not much of an army for you.

There is a Private 1611 John Day 2/24th who was not at RD during the battle.

J C Day, whoever he is, if he was there, was probably out with Chelmsford on the 22nd and returned to RD on the morning of the 23rd

Discharged 16th June 1881 after 16 years 8 months service. There has been never any doubt where he was on 22nd/23rd January 1879. Is it the newspaper that is not clear - the text does suggests that members of the 24th where there not specifically Pte Day.
