Does anyone know if the 55th (Westmoreland) Regiment supplied any drafts to the reinforcements to serve in regiments bound for service in South Africa. They were based at Shorncliffe in 1879, so ideally placed to supply drafts for those departing units departing from South-East England as reinforcements.

John

There were six soldiers from 55th Foot on the Clyde draft - all served with 1/24th (this might not be a full list - but best I can do):

25B/1895 Brereton, Edw
25B/1897 Corney, Thomas
25B/1912 Gardner, Wm
25B/1934 Lang, Harry
25B/1939 McMeekin, Wm
25B/1879 Shephard, Alfred Henry (Sgt)

Kenny,

Thanks for that, two more from 55th than are noted in The Noble 24th.

I also discovered through another source that the 55th supplied men to the 91st Highlanders.

Here's the reason for my query.  A Sergeant in a pre-1874 frock of the 55th, with an 1879 barred SA medal, and a Long Service & Good Conduct Medal.

John

Probably the only way to point pin him is look up ledgers WO102 (LS&GC Medal) on microfilm in the National Archives - the entries are listed by regiment - the Border Regt - as the award is probably after 1881.

Thanks Kenny.

If I get some spare time I'll try and progress it.
