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.

963 David Lewis was named by Bourne initially and in his amended roll but not in Chards or Dunbars roll.

There are little bits missing between the 6th and 7th and 12th and 13th clippings from the Glamorgan Advertiser account.
Any chance you could post the missing links?

Just thinking Julian, would you happen to know many enlisted men were brothers in the 24th?
It might be possible to pin down the identity of the flogged man.

There were several sets of brothers. I think this might be a difficult task in the short term. I'll have a look but I think it's something more to be borne in mind for the future.

Hi All,
Possible census 1911, Army Pensioner Cardiff, the 1939 people list gives address Denton Road Cardiff born 9 june 1860, in his papers is a death certificate Edward Lewis died 29 Dec 1939 at Llandough Hospital Penarth, at first i thought this might be a different man but is Probate says Edwin Edward otherwise Edward, of 15 Wellfield Place Cardiff, died 29 Dec 1939 at Llandough Hospital Penarth nr Cardiff, to Emilie Harding widow.
