Natal Witness 14th October 1879

There is a Hughes G. 1879 clasp shown as 'died in service' in the NMP medal rolls.

Apparently he was a native of Canterbury. Natal Witness 18th October 1879

Hi Tim
When we recently went to the PMB Cemetery it was locked up complete with a new security fence , you must ring and someone will ' eventually ' open it for you , when we looked through the fence into the NMP section it was so badly overgrown , and I can say I've never ever seen that Memorial ( Damn ! ) , in saying that we drove past the cemetery on a sunday a couple of weeks ago and I remarked that I thought the Cemetery had had some work done on it ! , unfortunately we didn't have time to stop and check the NMP section .
