Hi

Hoping someone can solve a little puzzle for me.

A distant relative of mine, Richard Halligan joined the army 6 Jun 1877 in Armagh. He was assigned to 65 Brigade. He embarked from Southampton for South Africa on 26 Feb 1879.

What I am wanting to know is what unit was 65 Brigade and what role did they play during the Zulu Campaign.

Thank you

Dermot

Dermot,

Richard Halligan was a Lance-Corporal in the 94th Regiment. The 94th and 89th Regiments formed the 65th Brigade which had its headquarters in Armagh. The regiments recruited from Counties Cavan, Monaghan, Armagh and Louth.

The 94th went out to South Africa in the wake of the disaster of Isandlwana.

They served in the 2nd Division during the advance to Ulundi during the second invasion. A number of the 94th were present in the square at the Battle of Ulundi on 4th July 1879.

After the Zulu surrender, the 94th fought against the forces of Sekhukhune in December 1879 in Northern Transvaal under Garnet Wolseley.

In 1880-1 they fought against Boer forces in 1st Anglo-Boer War.

Many Thanks 'Jimu.

That all fits in with what I have and helps to add to the picture.

May I ask what sources you used to find this info. Might be useful to know if I have further inquiries.

Thanks again.

Dermot,

Most of it is from inside my head - rather from any reference works.

The rest is from the 1877-8-9 Medal Roll & The Army List of 1879.

I should have mentioned that the 94th became the 2nd Battalion of the Connaught Rangers in 1881 with Childers' Army Reforms. The Regiment was disbanded in 1922.

If I can help further please pm me.

Regards,

'Jimu
