Evening Mail - Monday 19 May 1879
Bearing in mind there are three 24th Regiment Martini's probably taken from iSandlwana, I wonder if the Martini marked '32nd' was Cochrane's?
I appreciate it was unusual for an officer to have a rifle but he may have taken from the regimental armoury before leaving for SA. Only one private on the 32nd medal rolls 1697 W King 1879 clasp.
Those 4 Martini's from the 80th at Kambula must have been taken from the dead at Meyer's Drift.
