lionshead,

I don’t know if he died while still in the service, but Marguerie was still serving on HMS Orontes when he received his South Africa Medal on 29 August, 1881.

I can’t find him on ebay. Can you post the link to his medal?

Isandula,

Thank you for the photo of Orontes with the season's greetings. Any idea what year that was?

I always enjoy your photos, especially of the navy. You wouldn't happen to have a photo of Commanders Brackenbury or Romilly in your collection?

Thanks, POT, for the positive comments. Unfortunately I do not have a photograph of either Brackenbury or Romilly . I have searched far and wide for a photograph of Romilly as I have a Zulu War period letter penned by him in which he mentioned the prisoner King Cetshwayo and that he, Romilly, was fired upon at Port Durnford by Zulus whose bullets were ineffectual. Ironically a year later he was fatally wounded at Majuba by Boers, whom he thought out of range, who potted him in the stomach. See scans of original letter and transcription.

Isandula,

Thank you for the letter. I also have looked far and wide for photos of both Brackenbury and Romilly, but with no luck. Maybe one of these days.
