Hi,

Are the names of the other members of the Rocket detachment (apart from Grant, Trainor etc) recorded or does anyone have any ideas of who they were?

Sime,

Acting Bombardier 2766 George Goff, N/5 R.A., readily springs to mind, as does Private 299 D. (Or W.) Johnson, 1st/24th Regiment.

Not forgetting Brevet Major Francis Broadfoot Russell, 11/7 R.A.

Hi John,

Thanks a lot.

In all the books I have read, it always names around 5 members and says 'plus 4 others'.

We now have William Taylor named but he was not one of the 'others' because until Julian's latest work, he was not know to have been part of the detachment.

Are the names of the 'others' (from C coy 1/24th) recorded, or were the records lost at Isandlwana

Cheers

Sime

Sime,

The Pay & Muster Roll which might have indicated those on detached duties was indeed lost at iSandlwana. So there no way - at present - to establish their identities.

Regards,

JY

Hi

That's the thing I am fascinated by, the fact that the rocket detachment was the one 'closest to danger' (OK there was probably no where safe at Isandlwana for the British, that day) but 6 out of 11 survived the journey back to the camp, out of which 5 made it to safety.

Thank you

Simon
