A Mr Peter Mellar posted a topic on the RDVD regarding a memorial to the 80th in Lichfield Cathedral. Which got me surfing the net. And I came up with this.

"The whole of the aisle of this transept is taken up with the organ, in front of which a metal screen or gryll was placed in 1881 by the officers and men of the 80th Regiment, in memory of their comrades who fell in the Zulu War. The screen is ornamented with imitations of Zulu shields and assegais."

Anyone from the forum was to the Cathedral.

Admin I wasn't sure where to post this. So you might want to move it in to another section of the forum.

I am the one who originally posted this on the RDVC forum, and it has an interesting backstory. Although it is still unclear to me whether the Zulu assegais in the memorial were actually taken from the battlefield at Ulundi, their inclusion was extremely controversial. Several years after the war, the dean of the cathedral tried to get the memorial removed, and this enraged Major Tucker so much that he went straight to the cathedral and said: "Send for the f***ing dean!" I may still have some further photographs if anybody is interested, but will have to check.

Hi. Prm502

firstly welcome to the Forum.
That’s a very interesting story. When you have the time I would be very keen to see the photos if you do have any. I was always under the illusion they were replicas. Looking forward to the Photo’s and any other information you may have. The display is certainly impressive,

I'm just trying to find where my pictures are, should have them up by tonight! Just to inform you that the shields have the names of every single member of the 80th who died at Intombi and Ulunidi - they don't however seem to have the names of the 6 members of the 80th who died at Isandlwana!

I tried to enhance this photo to show some of the names on the shields. But its not that clear. But it gives an idea of what they look like. Hope it helps.

hi admin,
I have no idea why the 80th troops , killed at Isandlwana aren"t on the shields at LICHFIELD. Maybe those involved
with setting up the shield memorial didnt realise 6 soldiers of the 80th regt were at Isandlwana.
I have R. HOPE"S book on the 80th regt in africa , will see if anything is mentioned about Lichfield.
cheers 90th.

695 Shoeing-Sm. Wm. Seymour (Pte. on the roll) and 60 Private Joseph Whitehouse, were all listed under the Mounted Infantry killed at Isandlwana.
This could be why they are not listed on the Memorial, but I did not know they were not. scratch

PostSubject: lichfield missing names   Lichfield Cathedral EmptySun Oct 04, 2009 5:37 am

hi all.
I have emailed the 80th regimental museum , The researcher says 7 men involved , 6 attached to the 1ST SQDN
MTD INF, the other attached to HQ STAFF NO3 COL, all these KIA 22/1/79. He goes on to say that in ROBERT
HOPE"S book on the 80th Regt in STH Africa 1878-79 , 95 officers and men were casualties of the war . The shields
have 15 names and there are 5 of them which comes to a total of 90 names, The curator said its not uncommon for
memorials to be incomplete, he will make further enquiries and get back to me.
cheers 90th.

ps. I have just looked at the shields , they seem to have more than 15 names on each one , so not sure where
the researcher is coming from , scratch

I presume you spoke to either Erik Blakeley or Willie Turner, both are excellent researchers so I'm sure they'll find out what's up! - all I can say for definite is that there is definitely not a sub-category for Isandlwana on the shields, whereas there are for Intombi and Ulundi - maybe they are included accidentally in the Intombi list??

It is actually possible that some of those who died in South Africa (1877-80), but not during battle, could be on the memorial in error - there were 46 soldiers who died at places other than Isandlwana/Intombi/Ulundi, but I think at least 17 of these may be on the shields! I can definitely say that 7 men died at Isandlwana, 61 at Intombi, 2 at Ulundi (with 5 severely wounded - may have died subsequently of injuries?) and 2 wounded at Kambula. Civil Surgeon William Ingram Cobbin of the Army Medical Department and Joseph Whittington, a waggon conductor of the Commisariat and Transport Department, also were killed at Intombi whilst attached to the 80th, so that's a possible 125 people!

As a beside, there isn't any recognition of Samuel Wassall in the cathedral, I would have thought that his VC would have been big news!

This thread has been playing on my mind for sometime now. The question why the ones killed at Isandlwana were not on the memorial !!!! As I said before, I did not know they were not.

Well today, I went up into the loft and found the photographs of the memorial I took when I went to Lichfield a few years ago.

There are 17 names on the first shield, 18 names on the second, 20 names on the third, 16 names on the fourth and 17 names on the fifth shield, making a total of 88 names.

On the fourth shield from the left, there are 7 names listed under Killed at Isandhlwana, so they are listed on the memorial and they are Sgt. William. Johnson, Privates John Chesterton, Edward Holman, Henry Thompson, William McDonald, William Seymour and Joseph Whitehouse. So there are 7 killed at Isandlwana not 6. The other thing to note is, Henry Thompson is listed on the memorial as a Private but on the medal roll, he is listed as a Sergeant.

Hi John

From the photographs I took, I can only count 88 names on the shields, so to answer your question, I would have to say the memorial does not account for all of the 80th who fell during 1878-1879 campaigns.

hi 1879graves.
In regard to the 7 killed at ISANDLWANA , 6 were members of the MTD INFANTRY, the other was on
the HDQTRS STAFF.

This from ROBERT HOPE'S book. A STAFFORDSHIRE REGT IN THE ZULU AND SEKUKUNI CAMPAIGNS
1878 - 1879. 80TH REGT OF FOOT.
CASUALTY LIST. A total of 126 , of which 70 are K.I.A. ISANDLWANA 7 , INTOMBI RIVER 61 , ULUNDI 2 ,WOUNDED KAMBULA 2
ULUNDI 5 . Civil surgeon Cobbin of the army med dept and Joseph Whittington a wagon conductor of the commissariat and transport dept, both attached to the 80th regt, were also killed at Intombi River. During the taking of SEKUKUNI KRAAL 1 man
was wounded. There are also 46 names of soldiers who died whilst serving with the regt in sth africa and 17 of these were NOT
awarded the SOUTH AFRICA MEDAL..

Thompson's actual rank was Acting QM-Sergeant and he was attached to the Staff.
The other 6 were all IMI.
Hope's book is in error.

I was on a Rotary Friendship Exchange to the UK Midlands in 2012 when my host took me to Lichfield Cathedral. I could hardly believe my eyes when I saw the memorial. It is magnificent. I might add that there was a reference or link to South Africa in virtually every church and cathedral that I visited. Made me feel quite at home!
