Hi all,
in going through a box of old stuff I came across letters from my Grandfather, who fought with the Cape Town Highlanders in the BechuanaLand campaign of 1897, and some letters from his father who was part of N/5 at Isandlwana. Well, in one of the envelopes I found 4 small gold flat buttons, about 15mm across, with a silver horn dangling on a rope. Really curious as to whom they may have belonged.
Any ideas?
Thanks,
James Cooke

These are light infantry buttons - probably an officer but hard to be more specific are there anymore marks on the back?

They look like they could be fairly modern LI blazer buttons.

Not sure as what was the first invation, but I found letters addressed to his wife around July 1878 during the trek with Col Woods column to Natal. Reading these letters and seeing the humanity in the man is touching - his concern for his wife and 6 young children was clearly evident.

Hi "jc_tx",
Those letters can have a real historic interest .
I think of the Frank Emery 's great work ("Marching over africa: letters from Victorians soldiers" or "the Reds Soldier: letters from the zulu war 1879").
I suggest you to contact Julian WHYBRA, a membrer of this forum, un honest, rigourous and meticulous historian.

I.E Thanks to 90th for the precision
I.E Littlehand : QMS or Staff sergeant James COOKE N/5 R.A

James COOK (QMS /but Staff sergeant for Jullian WHYBRA) N/5 RA is the " avatar" of jc_tx;

Hi Ymob .
I think it was established on another thread that James Cook was indeed with Harness , if he wasnt he probably wouldnt have survived Isandlwana , in saying that , there were 11 surviviors and possibly another from N / 5Bde according to Julian's
' England's Sons '.
Cheers 90th.

Hi 90th
I am agree with you. I have read 'England's sons'. COOKE was not at Isandhlwana the 22/01/1879. But i don't prove that he was with HARNESS!
Cheers

The buttons look suspiciously like 'Stay Bright', that would put them around early sixties.
