John,

You have got to make sure that the text you are reproducing is accurate:

John wrote:
It then went on to serve during the second Burmese war (1852-53), the Zulu Wars (1879) fighting at The Battle of Isandlwala.

These are not the only inaccuracies I have spotted in the text, just from a quick scan.

24th,

Just look what they have written on the Zulu War - not Wars - I think that says it all not a mention of Ntombe or Ulundi only 'The Battle of Isandlwala' where eight other-ranks of the 80th took part.

No, nothing like David Jenkins at all.
