Andrew Aitken Evans

Naval Record details

Hms Tenedos 1 Oct 78 to 7 Feb 79
Hms Active  7 Feb 79 to 17 Mar 79
Hms Boadicea 18 Feb 79 to 9 May 79
Hms Tenedos 10 May 79 to 19 Dec 79

Andrew was my Great Grandfather. Could anybody be kind enough to let me know of what role he may have performed? whether he was part of the siege at Eshowe? whether he is on the Medal roll and for which medal? and finally why would he change ships at that time?
Thank you Richard Evans

Richard,

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.

Thanks John for your prompt reply.. Does this mean he was on shore while this was going on or still aboard? was just wondering whether he had part in the building of Fort Tenedos and the siege of Eshowe.. Richard

Richard,

I would hazard a guess and say he was ashore and serving in the Landing Brigades. If he was not besieged at Eshowe, he might well have served in the Eshowe Relief Force.

Folio 33: Andrew Evans, aged 20, Able Seaman; disease or hurt, Fever Enteric. Put on sick list, 3 March 1879. Discharged 29 March 1879 to hospital.

Possibly the same man!

Wow thank you for your help. Does it mean that because he got the medal with the bar 1879, that he must have crossed the river into Zululand. And I am guessing that he was at the siege due to having over 3 weeks of Enteric Fever (also called Typhoid Fever)
