N/t trace of an Hancock in the medal rolls. Of course the 'last Zulu war' could be the 1888 or 1906 disturbances

That’s interesting. There’s a fair chance I’m distantly related to him as my family origins are only a few miles away to the north of St.Austell. I’ll have to do some more family tree research to try to find if there is a connection.
