I came across this the other day, thought it may be of interest:

Pick,

That is a wonderful summary of the entitlement of the officers and men of the Royal Navy who participated in te Zulu War. Where did you find it?

The granting of the medal to the Navy personnel was somewhat delayed as noted in parliamentary debate:

THE NAVAL BRIGADE—THE ZULU WAR MEDAL.HC Deb 21 February 1881
§ MR. HERBERT MAXWELL asked the Secretary to the Admiralty, If he will state what reasons exist for delaying the issue of the war medal to the men and officers of the Naval Brigade engaged in the late Zulu War; and, whether, in consideration of the fact that the medal has been issued to all our land forces engaged in that War, and in view of the disadvantage occasioned to men who leave the service before the 1388 medal is conferred on them, he can hold out any hope of an early distribution of these medals to the men of the Naval Brigade?

§ MR. TREVELYAN With regard to the men engaged in the operations in Zululand, it has been necessary to correspond with the Commodore at the Cape, and with Admiral Sir Francis Sullivan, the late Commodore, in order to ascertain the ships entitled to the medal and the men entitled to the clasp. Orders have now been issued for the preparation of the rolls; but these preliminary investigations have taken up so much time as seriously to retard the distribution. Arrangements have been made during the present military operations in the Transvaal to secure a contemporary record of services, which will be adopted in all future cases, and will obviate this cause of delay.

It was ADM171/40, which I think is the start of the medal rolls. The second page, which I was too lazy to re-type gave the exact dates that each ship was there. Somehow, although the crew could apply in person, my gut feel says that the medals were sent to the individuals while on board their present ships. I just don't see 1000s of sailors showing up in person or writing letters!

"South African Medal
