Families of 1/24th Empty
PostSubject: Families of 1/24th   Families of 1/24th EmptyMon Aug 12, 2013 3:29 pm

I am doing some research into the family of one of the ordinary soldiers of the 1/24th killed at Isandlwana, whose wife and children were with him in South Africa.

I have traced their presence in the Pay and Muster Books of the 1/24th at the NA, and I note from earlier threads that accompanying families were left at Cape Town when the Battalion moved to Natal. But has anyone come across any account of how these poor people were informed of the deaths of all their loved ones at one fell swoop? It was of course a terrible shock for everyone, but particularly so for them.

I know that a charitable fund was set up to look after their welfare, and I have evidence that the family of interest benefited from that. I am surprised that no records seem to exist or any account of how the news was broken to those closest to those involved.

Is there likely to be anything at Brecon?

Didn't Henry Hooks wife, think that he had been KIA, and married someone else?

I'm not sure at the early stages even if they knew who had or hadn't been KIA at Isandlwana.
