Lord Chelmsford Said .Buller is ‘one of the finest soldiers of the century’, so modest and reticent –that it was difficult to say for what individual deed he had got the Victoria Cross as he had been doing acts worthy of it all along the line

Hi All


As the papers of the sublim 1/24 th were unfortunately destroyed at Isandhlwana ...

There may be in a book, a "état de corps", but company by company, of the five companies of 1/24 th massacred at Isandhlwana allegedly concocted before the invasion of the Zululand ? For example, during the ninth War Cap ... Just to get an idea of the company strenght of each of these companies at Isandhlwana...


Cheers

Rascal I'm not home so I cant check any books , but from memory,  Ian Knight says that the Companies were in fact under strength , due to Illness , fever etc etc . I'm fairly certain he mentions this in several of his publications.

There are only rolls of December 1878 for these five companies 1/24 th massacred at Isandhlwana. Their numbers were not far from the actual ones that had to Isandhlwana ...


BUT ALAS THEY ARE IN THE NATIONAL ARCHIVE '- THE MUSTER ROLLS AND PAY FOR THE BATTALION - THEY ARE HUGE!

I have done some work on the Pay and Muster Books for 1/24th at the National Archives. They are listed each quarter year by rank and name, there is no mention of which Company a soldier was with. But they do say where he was mustered for each of the three months in the quarter.

Bonsoir Steve

I cooked it over a year with Julian, the exact or approximate number in officers, NCO's and soldiers of each company, troops or battery of the third and second columns in zululand the January 22, 1879, unfortunately I all lost, I would have been better to do this would on paper ...

I am very tired, but it is so important to me that I will have again one of these days ...
