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.

Kate,

The only W. May that I could find who served during the Zulu War is William May, Domestic 3rd Class who served aboard HMS Tamar. Entitled to the South Africa Medal without clasp. No record of this man having served in the Coastguard.
