The Journalist Norris-Newman wrote that an Indian Contingent was raised in Durban during the Zulu War.

“I arrived in Durban on the evening after the Manora anchored in the bay, and speedily made myself acquainted with the arrangements in progress. In the town itself, in preparation for the absence of the troops, an Indian Contingent had been raised to do garrison duty, and the Volunteer, Rifle, and Artillery Corps were called out.
I spent three more days in Durban until the 26th of March, and then left for the Lower Tugela.” (from “In Zululand With The British Throughout The War of 1879”, by Charles L. Norris-Newman, page 129.)

Were they entitled to, and did they receive, the South Africa Medal without clasp for their participation as were other Colonial Units that were raised?

I have not read anything else about this unit, and am not familiar with them.

There would have been no Indian troops during the AZw and I have never heard of an Indian company like there was during the Boer War when Gandhi organized Indian stretcher bearers.

I have previously posted on the Forum the involvement and make up of the Indian Corps , look through my posts in the
last 6 weeks or so . Or search the threads .

Think I also mentioned about the Indian Corps and Medal Roll , Certain they are not in the medal roll but the officers who
commanded them are .
