From forum member " Clayman"

"I come here from a genealogy search. My great grand uncle William Oakley was a private in the 1st battalion, 24th Regiment and he appears on the casualty list for Isandhlwana.
I am curious to know if there are any details of his enlistment, family - he may have had a wife Eliza and at least one son also William who would have been about 10 years old at the time of his fathers death. I'm not sure where to look.
Thanks Chris"

I'm sure we can find something on this chap for Chris. Idea

From the LIST of Officers and Men killed in action at the Camp, Isandhlwana Hill, Zululand, on the 22nd January, 1879.

Oakley, Wm.  1245.

Thanks a lot. Can you explain why he might have re-enlisted at Gibraltar?. It's a fascinating place but a long way from Hertfordshire!

Hi Clayman.
I would say his regiment was posted there at some stage before his enlistment was up and he decided to stay on .
I'm sure someone will post us the correct dates that the Regt was in Gibraltar .
