Admin, Graves, Rai. Petty Officer Tom. I have P.M. A link to you. If you can see where the mystery is please post it on the forum in laymans terms. scratch The mystery is concerning three R.D Defenders. William Tasker, Patrick Galery & John Manley. But like I said can't get my head around what the author is saying.

Hi Littlehand,
This reads to me that the monument was put up by those regiments who were stationed in Sheffield after some epidemic killed a large number of soldiers from the various regiments,
The mention at the end appendix the list of 1/24 and 2/24 who were in the Zulu War, COULD HAVE BEEN?? in barracks at sheffield at the time it would need at bit more research to prove this by looking at the paylists held in the National Archives at Kew.

Rai. I might be reading this the wrong way.

“The main question still remains; why are these men's names on the memorial in question.”I take it he his referring to Tasker, Galery & Manley. Who of course took part in the Battle of Rorkes Drift? Some years later.

Littlehand do you have a photo pf this memorial, which shows the three names in-question.

Hi Again
It states 33 names are listed on the memorial, and then lists these 33.
Tasker was attested in Sheffield and sent to the depot at this time, however he is not listed on the memorial and therefore has nothing to do with the said memorial, it seems the writer has included the info on Rorke's Drift, basically to fill out the piece, with info that the 1/24 and 2/24 were both stationed at Sheffield during the period in question.

Thanks for the PMs and replies..

CTSG. The reason i did not post the link straight away is because i thought it would be best to, ask some of the members that are a bit more knowledgeable than myself. I did not intend it to come across as me being rude. And as no other member as made any comment I don’t think I was. But to keep you happy here’s the link. Let us know what you make of it.
