I have been attempting to find more information re the death of Pte/Cpl C Hine.
Not having uncovered anything, I find that I am coming across quite a few of the
personnel of 1st Battalion, 13th Foot. I do not know if any of this is new information
to anyone, but I would like to share it anyway.
The War Office Sep 9th 1879. The following return of casualties has been received by
The Secretary of State for War from the seat of war in South Africa.
Bugle-Major P Cockeing - disability, 5th July Utrecht.
Lt G a Pardoe - gunshot wounds of thighs, 14th July.
Pte R McLarni - peritonitis, 16th July.
Pte W Shepherd - gunshot wounds of chest, 11th July.
Pte J Davis - gunshot wounds of head, 6th July.
Bugle-Major Cockeing - gunshot wounds of head, 6th July.
Supplementary return of wounded in action on 4th July 1879 at Ulandi.
Cpl J Walker - gunshot wounds - slightly.
These are just the men from 1st Battalion, 13th Foot mentioned. However there are
quite a few members of other Regiments list there as well e.g. 60th, 88th, 90th, 91st etc.
If it would be helpful to name all of the people in these Gazette articles I would be willing
to do so. I realise our web site has lots of records and could probably have all this info.
