Lieutenant John Chard: What's our strength? Lieutenant Gonville Bromhead: Seven officers including surgeon, commissaries and so on; Adendorff now I suppose; wounded and sick 36, fit for duty 97 and about 40 native levies. Not much of an army for you.

Does anyone know of a 24th Regt. wife (and probably widow) with the Christian name Bella? She's cropped up in a letter and it would help me to identify her husband.

PostSubject: Re: a little help needed...   a little help needed... EmptyThu Oct 17, 2013 10:55 pm

Julian,
 
This is from a letter of Private W. G. Wilson of the 2/24th, written February 22, 1879 at Rorke's Drift.
 
“We thought that we should hear something of at least a few of our other men, or the 1st Battalion; but out of the five companies and the band of the 1st and one of ours only two men of the 1st have escaped the massacre, and one of them happens to be Bella’s husband.   The two of them managed to get on spare horses that were handy.”
 
If you have any idea who the two men of the 1st Battalion are who escaped, you have a 50/50 chance of finding Bella’s husband.  She wouldn't be a widow though.

The choice isn't very big. Privates Bickley or Wilson.

I think it's Wilson I'm after but I had a feeling it might be an NCO.

Julian
There sounds like a familiar connotation in the comments by WG Wilson. Possible locating his home town and comparison back to J Wilson could be a line of thought?
