If you search for Lines on this site, you will discover that member SergioD, if anyone, will have any information.

I think you'd be very, very, lucky to find a photo of John LInes - but you never know.



Good luck.

He was killed in action at the Battle of Isandhlwana on 22nd January 1879. Born at Sibford Ferris, Oxfordshire. He transferred from 1st/24th (1-24/897) on 15th March 1870. Promoted to Corporal on 31st January 1872 and Sergeant circa 1874. Served in ‘A’ Company. In action at Baillie’s Grave 7th April 1878. He was beside 102 Private Collins at the time of his death in that action. In a letter dated 5th October 1878 at Pietermaritzburg, he states - ‘I had a very narrow escape of being shot by the Kaffirs - at Bailey’s Grave there was one man shot dead only 3 yards from me. I expect I should have shared the same fate only I was lying down and he was standing up, but as soon as I got to my legs the bullets came around me like hail’ (Regimental Archive). Medal and Clasp ‘1877-8-9’ issued on 25th August 1882. His regimental service number was 2-24/2227
