Hello. I am new to the forum.

I have a Zulu War medal presented to C. Longthorne 1st 13th Ft. It does not have the original clasp, but I believe he was entitled to the 1879 clasp.

I believe this man to have been a great, great uncle of mine, though the family history I have of this is very thin. Can anyone provide me with any information on C. Longthorne? I an trying to estabish/clarify the family link.

I would appreciate any help members can give me with this search. I live in Canada, so researching this sort of information is very difficult.

My thanks.

Bill,

Welcome to the forum.

I checked the medal roll for the 13th, and found Private C Longthorne, #1190 listed. He served against the Zulu, and in December – November, 1879 against Sekukuni. He is entitled to the clasp “1879” on his South Africa Medal.

Thanks for the quick replies.

Unfortunately I do not know what his first name is. That is my problem - I have so little information about him. Besides learning more about this campaign and his service in it, I am hoping some of the information that may turn up related to his service might lead me to his place of birth, date of birth, etc. - anything really.

Yes, his roll number is #1190. I should have included that perhaps. It is inscribed, along with his name and regiment on the rim of the medal.

Bill,

A little more searching turned up a Charles Longthorne on the 1881 census. He is listed as 33 years old; date of birth estimated to be 1848; unmarried; place of birth: Sheffield, Yorkshire; occupation: Private; address: “The Raglan Barracks”, St. Aubyn, Devonport.
Raglan Barracks is where the 13th Regiment went when they returned from the Zulu War.

I suspect that this is your man.

If you are interested in what the 13th did, and where they were, during the Zulu War, may I suggest you read “A Brief History of the 13th Regiment (P.A.L.I.) in South Africa during the Transvaal and Zulu difficulties, 1877-8-9-“ by Edward D. McToy.

Here is a link to the book online:

http://books.google.com/books?id=FbkoAAAAYAAJ&printsec=frontcover&source=gbs_ge_summary_r&cad=0#v=onepage&q&f=false

Did a quick search of the book, but did not find his name.

I sent you a PM


Petty Officer Tom

Hi littlehand:

Thanks for the information. Petty Officer Tom corroborates your information. I was trying to make my way through the British Archives earlier (not very successfully, I might add), looking for any record of Longthorne. I doubt I would ever have found him. A good start to a larger mystery. Thanks again.

Hi rai:

My thanks. You turned up some truly amazing information. It paints a very colourful (and occasionally dodgy - breaking out of barraks, AWOL, deserted - though he did rejoin and stayed in for quite a stretch) picture of this man. This information should be very helpful in making the connection to my family.

I had looked at the site findmyfamily.uk but didn't have any luck finding Longthorne. I will try again. Were there pdf. of any documents, or just website entries?

Thanks again. Very interesting stuff.

Hi Bill.
If you contact D.P & G Publishing they may send you a list of Photos available ( Copies from the original Negatives ) of their Zulu war
time period , I just checked their catalogue and they have 34 Photos of the 13th Regt at the time of the zulu war , I think they charge
2 quid per photo . All up they have 154 Photos covering a few of the regiments , I've purchased probably a 100 of them and never had a problem . Here is the link .

Cheers 90th. You need to study mo
