PostSubject: Lance-Sergeant John Key, 2/24th Foot    Lance-Sergeant John Key, 2/24th Foot EmptyMon Sep 05, 2011 11:36 am

"John Key attested at Secunderabad, India, on 28 August 1871, and was posted to the 2nd Battalion, 24th Foot. Appointed a Drummer in 1873, he reverted to Private in September 1877 and was appointed Lance-Corporal in May 1878. He was promoted Corporal in July 1878 and appointed Lance-Sergeant on 19 February 1879. He thus served as a Corporal in “B” Company at the epic defence of the mission station at Rorke’s Drift on 22nd/23rd January 1879. He was promoted to Sergeant in March 1880 and placed on the unattached list at Secunderabad on 1 March 1884".
