Yes he is on the Medal Roll as an Able Seaman from HMS Tenedos. He received the medal with the bar 1879.
The Tenedos went down to Simon's Town, near Cape Town, for repairs in early February, hence why he was assigned to the Active at that time.
The Boadicea subsequently joined the fray and replaced the Active.
By the last set of dates he returns to his own ship's company.
