In 1879 one of my ancestors 1698 Sergent Joseph Thomas was with 11 Battery, 7th Brigade Royal Artillery. I am trying to find out which column he was in, where he saw battle and who was his commander. Any help would be great.

Hi MrLeprechaun
Your relative Sgt Thomas is in the Medal Roll , his commanding Officer was Major E.G.Tremlett , the following from Mackinnon & Shadbolt's ' The South African Campaign Of 1879 '
No11 Battery , 7th Brigade
Lt- Col Tremlett's battery served with the field force throughout the whole of the war , a heavy share of arduous and important duty falling to it's lot . The Hd-Qtrs were with Wood's column throughout its various operations , including the action at Zunguin Nek , on the 24th Jan ; the battle of Khambula on the 29th March ; and the battle of Ulundi on the 4th July - a detachment also being present at the action on the Zlobane on the 28th March , and two men of the battery at the battle of Ginghilovo on the 2nd April ; while another division of the battery under Lt Wilford Lloyd served with Pearson's column from the date of it's formation till the relief of Etshowe - being present at the battle of Inyezane on the 22nd Jan , and throughout the subsequent
blockade of the post ; and afterwards taking part in the operations of Crealock's Divis . Major Russell , of the battery , was killed when in command of a rocket detachment at Isandhlwana on the 22nd Jan . Hope this helps ? .
Cheers 90th

Thanks 90th

I'm finding it a bit difficult to find out details of his service as he later died in service in 1886 and I read that the service records of those who died in service were destroyed as there was no need to keep them. He had become a Battery Sergent Major in the 9/1st Western Division R.A. and was in Mauritius when he died.

Hi Simon
Yes that's correct , when the soldiers died on service their records were destroyed .

90th

I'm trying to a birth record for Joseph I know that he was born in 1853 somewhere in England but the are 2940 matches on Find My Past. I have found out that he enlisted on 01/02/1872 from the Forces War Records, would the place of his enlistment be on muster rolls, i.e. first payment. Any other records which might help?
