Whilst carrying out some research on Fort Evelyn I came across a report that there was the grave there of a Drum Major from the 58th Regiment.
It was noted by Sir George Douglas after his visit to his sons grave in 1880.
Here is part of the article which also mentions his visit to iSandlwana

[You must be registered and logged in to see this image.]
Larne Reporter and Northern Counties Advertiser - Saturday 28 August 1880

I am trying to find out who this 58th man was.
He either died of disease there (it was garrisoned by two companies of the 58th  under Maj Foster) or perhaps was wounded at Ulundi and brought back there and died.
Fell like stones only lists a Lance Corporal J.Tomkinson kia at Ulundi.
There are two Colour Sergeants J. Piper and T.Wallingford severely wounded and a drummer H. Stewart dangerously wounded at Ulundi

Does anyone on here have any ideas who this mysterious 58th Drum Major could be?

One to look for next month Gary

Thank you

Hi Kate
I was aware of the Drum Majors Grave , unfortunately I didn't find it when I went there a few years ago , exploring there will probably depend on the height of the Grass as it can be well over 7 ft high ! , which , if that's the case , it'll be pointless stopping . The last few times I've been past this has been the case ! .
