What's the secret to finding this information, there seems to be an abundance of names being added, I spend hours looking for new names to add and never have any luck. What am I doing wrong, any help would be appreciated.

I think Littlehand may scour newspapers reading Obituaries or similar , if I can add any information I use my Copy of ' The South African Campaign Of 1879 ' by Mackinnon & Shadbolt which lists all the officers involved in the war and some notes on their service in 1879 , it also has Photographs and Biographies of all Officers who died in Sth Africa during the AZW . If I need information on Enlisted men or NCO's along with Officers of the 24th I use Norman Holme's ' The Noble 24th , and another I use is Robert Hope's book ' A Staffordshire Regt ( 80th ) In The Zulu & Sekukuni Campaigns 1878 - 79 . Hope this helps ?
PS . All three are excellent books , can be picked up at times well priced on ebay.co.uk
