Hi Petty Officer Tom

Many thanks for posting the above list. This will help others as we do find thier name claiming that they took part in the Zulu War of 1879.

The following Naval Officers were attached to the Battalion of Royal Marines:

Surgeon Henry Thompson Cox
Fleet Surgeon Timotheus John Haran
Surgeon George Bell Murray
Chaplain/Naval Instructor William Edmund Smith

All of these would have been "seconded" to HMS Boadicea and carried on logs had they made it to Natal.

As with the Marines, none of these men were entitled to the medal for the Zulu War.

Could not resist this extract from the Letter Book of the Royal Marines Battalion. It is from the Commanding Officer Lt Col R W Bland Hunt to Captain Parsons the Commander of HMS Jumna at Simonstown. The content speaks for itself but I suggest he had his priorities well sorted!
