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.

Hi,
I am new to this forum and am looking for any information regarding my Great grandad’s cousin Sargent Major Frederick Gapp who served and died in the Battle of Isandlwana.
When viewing some discussions as a guest, I have seen his name mentioned several times and yesterday saw information indicating the location of his body and injuries following his death. Prior to this our family had very little information relating to him other than about his early family life, enlisting into the army and where he served until the time of his death.

Does anyone know of any information relevant to him that they could let me know please.

Thank you
Helen Jackson (nee Gapp)

Thank you Kenny,
My dad visited the memorial in Wales yesterday and was able to photograph his name and also saw the colours which had been returned from the battlefield. Sadly, there appears to be no photographs of him anywhere.

Thanks again for your swift reply
Helen
