Dear All
I have my great grandfathers 1879 South Africa Medal and it has him as Conductor G. Sidmouth Commissariat. I know he was a Troop Sergeant Major in the 1st Royal Dragoons and was then made up to conductor in the transport department in October 1879.
When he retired in 1894 he was made Honary Lieutenant. Was this normal or would he have done something special.
Does anybody know where i can find information about his war years and maybe if he was in any of the battles.?

Hi Fozy
I can tell you Conductor G. Sidmouth was entitled to the Medal with Clasp 1879 which means he crossed the Border into Zululand , as for saying if he was in any of the battles it's near on impossible to say , unless you have his Service Papers which may state if he was or not .

George Sidmouth appears in the 1891 Army List as Quartermaster Army Service Corps with honorary rank of Lieutenant with an effective date of 31 July 1889. The 1891 census shows him in Aldershot with his wife Mary and children Kate (age 14 born Norwich), George James (age 1 born Aldershot) and a servant Mary Patrick (15). By 1901 he is serving at Hounslow with cavalry. It was usual practice to commission a quartermaster as an honorary Lt. when appointed to a unit to reflect their responsibilities (in this case 1st Royal Dragoons).

He performed various and arduous duties over a wide extent of territory, and by his zeal and ability materially conduced to the successful carrying out of the plans of the head of the department.

Thank you all for your input, I have since found out that in 1902 he went from Quartermaster to Lt. then Captain.
I have also got a letter from Ian Hamilton Lt. General thanking him personally for his service. I quess this would be for something in the Transvaal War 1899-1900?

George James born in Aldershot was my grandfather.

Thanks again guys

Hi Pat

1291 Private Joseph Healey enlisted on 29 February 1876 with the 18th Regiment. He was 19 years old and was born in Pimlico London. He transferred to the 99th Regiment in 1878, served in Zululand and was awarded the South Africa General Service medal with the 1879 bar. He was discharged unfit on 15 January 1881 in Portsmouth. His papers are on the Find My Past website. There is no mention of next of kin or of any residence in South Africa. Hope that helps.

British Regiments in the Zulu War Empty
PostSubject: Re: British Regiments in the Zulu War   British Regiments in the Zulu War EmptyThu Feb 15, 2018 10:40 am

When I was about 10 years old (sixty three years ago) I remember going to my Mothers uncle and aunt home on a farm near Topuddle dorset.
The room we were in was very much in the Victorian manner decorated with pictures around the room. One picture showed a watercolour of a 17th Lancer standing beside his horse in full uniform holding a Lance , I was told that the person depicted was the uncle of my mother's uncle who served in the Zulu war. Unfortunately when my great uncle and aunt died in the late fifties early sixties the house contents was cleared by his wife's family the picture went with the contents. Still being young I had no influence on the matter as far as the painting was concerned.
I would like to trace who the Lancer was, I haven't his surname but it could possibly be Ayles being my Mothers maiden name. He was definitely from Dorset. I would be grateful please if someone could advise me on ways to trace his history. Thank you.

Hi Rider
I have no idea how to trace a soldiers history , even less if you aren't sure of the name , I checked the Medal Roll for the 17th Lcrs in the Zulu War , no-one named Ayles on the Roll . There are a lot of clever people on here , hopefully they are able to help .
Cheers

Hi,

Unfortunately a lot of people refer to the husband of their aunty to be their uncle, where as obviously your uncle or aunt are the your parents brother/sister. This will muddy the water as regards surnames.

Additionally particularly back in the sixties/seventies 'uncle' was an honorary name - for example my 'uncle' Don was actually my dads cousin Don

Do you subscribe to Ancestry.com - or do you know some who does, if so the best way to find a potential surname is to do a simple family tree. Otherwise there are a number of websites (BMD ones - which are free) which may help

That is stage 1 - next when you have found potential lancers - based on age etc, you have to cross reference the regimental roll, for similar names and hope he did not enlist under an alias.

Sorry to put a dampener on it, but I do a lot of family tree research, and I would struggle to find a name for him, not saying it is impossible.

There are better people for this sort of thing on the forum - who might know a less labour/time consuming way.

Thanks

Simon

Hi Rider17l

Welcome to the forum.

Lets start your search with great uncle and aunt's full address. Do you know this?
