Can anyone confirm. William BOTTERILL was the last Zulu War Veteran to die in Durban, 1957. He was also Sir George White's batman. I sent an e-mail to a Kathryn Bax Who posted this on another forum in 2004. No reply....??

Hi Littlehand

In D.R. Forsyth's Medal Roll, he is listed as Private W Bothrell, 58th Regiment.

Having looked on the 58th Regiment Medal Roll, you can see how the mistake has happened.

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

The only other information I can find is

A William Botterill, born 1860, died 1947, member of 1st Royal Inniskillings (Zulu War veteran) buried Military Cemetery, Durban, KwaZulu-Natal.

Hi sas1

Thanks for the kind comments.

I wish I did have all the medal rolls for each regiment that took part. I only have want is available on the market.

The 17th Lancers roll I have is very much incomplete. There are big sections missing.

The colonial rolls are also incomplete as they have all been destroyed.
