[You must be registered and logged in to see this image.]

If anyone can explain Brigade Numbers or District Numbers back in 1870's.

As you can see from the photo, this man was enlisted into the 61st Brigade at Edinburgh on 17th October 1878. He took part in the Zulu War and was in the 21st Regiment Royal Scots Fusiliers. Hence my question about Brigade / District Numbers?

Any Help or Explanation Appreciated

Is the same chap. He attested for service in the 61st Brigade at Dublin.

"South Africa Medal 1877-79. With clasp '1879' (1637 Lce. Corpl. D. McDonald, 2-21st Foot)

Donald McDonald a native of Lochalan, Dingwall, Rosshire, Scotland described himself as a Clerk by occupation when he attested for service in the 61st Brigade at Dublin on 3 July 1878, aged 24 years, 9 months. Posted to the 2nd Battalion 21st Foot (subsequently became Royal Scots Fusiliers in 1881), he served in Natal Colony South Africa, February 1879-February 1880, during which the 21st served during the First Boer War and later the Zulu War for which latter he was awarded the South Africa General Service Medal with clasp. He was discharged on the termination of his second period of engagement on 10 July 1899"

Hi All
If you look in Harts Army List for the period it will list the Brigade numbers
25th Brigade is the 24th regiment
38th Brigade is the 99th regiment
58th Brigade is the 91st regiment
34th Brigade is the 4th regiment
