Little hand have had a quick look through the original rolls couldn't see anything. Have a couple of other places I can look at tomorow. Will get back to you - I also have the egypt medal roll in the office so that might help.
That's where I got the information, just not heard of that unit

Hi All . I cant find Rotheby's Horse in any of the AZW books I have . As for S.E. Hull I checked the Forsyth Medal Roll and the closest I can find is .T.E.Hull 1879 Clasp , Trpr 3rd Cape Mtd Yeomanry , Medal returned to Woolwich Mint .Possibly Rotheby's Horse was the unit he was in during his Egypt Campaign of 1882 ?. Cheers 90th.
