Having read 10 separate books which mention the battle of Isandlwhana, I still can't come to a definitive decision as to which company of the 24th Regiment my direct descendent, Lt Francis Pender Porteous, was commanding when it was overrun by the Zulu impi. Would he have automatically been given the Zulu War Medal and is there some form of register which states to whom this and any other personal effects were subsequently given?

Perhaps you should look on-line:

He was awarded the South Africa Medal with clasp 1877-8-9 and commanded A Company 1/24th.

Thanks Kenny, some of what's on www.porteous.org.uk/ has been written by me, including that he commanded A Company 1/12th. Unfortunately since writing that, as I mentioned in my original post, I've read several different accounts suggesting he was leading a different company. Any ideas about how to trace to whom his personal effects may have been sent?

This is my list of the location of 24th officers on 22 January 1879.  Hope it makes sense.

Battalion Sub-unit Officers Location
Staff Glyn (No. 3 Column Comd), *Coghill Chelmsford’s Column, *Isandhlwana
1st Battalion 24th Foot HQ Pulleine (CO), Degacher W, Melvill (Adjt), White (Pmr), Pullen (QM), Sergt-Major Gapp Isandhlwana
A Porteous Isandhlwana
B Harrisson, Spring, Roche Fort Harrisson, Southern Natal/Pondoland border
C Younghusband, Hodson Isandhlwana
D Upcher, Heaton, Lloyd Moved independently from PMB to Helpmekaar
E Cavaye, Dyson Isandhlwana
F Mostyn, Anstey, Daly Moved independently from PMB arriving Isandhlwana 21 January
G Rainforth, Clements, Palmes Moved independently from PMB to Helpmekaar
H Wardell, Atkinson Isandhlwana
Band Isandhlwana
2nd Battalion 24th Foot HQ Degacher HJ (CO), Dunbar, Black, Trower, Phipps, Weallens, Sergt-Major Hogan Chelmsford’s Column
A Tongue Chelmsford’s Column
B Bromhead Rorke’s Drift
C Williams Chelmsford’s Column
D Penn Symons, Franklyn Chelmsford’s Column
E Logan Chelmsford’s Column
F Church, Mainwaring, Dobree Chelmsford’s Column
G+ Pope, Godwin-Austen F, Dyer (Adjt), Griffiths (Transport)* Bloomfield (QM) Isandhlwana
*Initially with Chelmsford
H Harvey, Banister, Curll Chelmsford’s Column
Band *Bandmaster Bullard Chelmsford’s Column, *Isandhlwana
Mounted Infantry 1 Sqn Browne In the vicinity of Chelmsford’s Column
2 Sqn Sugden Attached No. 1 Column (Possibly at Fort Pearson)


There is a ledger (NOT available on-line) in the National Archives at Kew - I think reference WO34/54 which gives deaths of 24th Officers and Men - some entries in the ledger do give a disposal reference for the effects - sometimes name.  However there is no further document at Kew which expands the disposal reference into name and address.

Hi Richard

Changing the subject a bit. Are you(both) related to Pat Porteous VC at Dieppe,  by any chance?

Cheers

Hi 24th Foot, no I'm not closely linked to Pat Porteous. I met him on a number of occasions at 'Porteous Family Gatherings' which are held every 5 years and which are attended from folk all over the world. I found him a very gentle, unassuming man.

Hi John, I am so excited to see the photos of Lt. F.P. Porteous taken when attending the musketry course at Hythe. It's the best frontal photo I've seen of him. I have an actual profile photo of him so this is a welcome addition to my understanding of what my cousin, twice removed, actually looked like. Can you explain for me the contents and significance of the other image you included of the names of those in his group on the course.
Once again, thank you so much, it's a litle bit like Christmas coming early!
Best wishes,, Richard

Hello Richard,

The centred text above the photograph is what appears at the top of the album page.

So it appears the 6th Section of the Course which ran from August to September 1870 were the best in the course.

The handwritten text identifies the individuals in the section, hence the reason for its inclusion.  Must say it has proved interesting to follow the careers of the others in the group.

Best wishes,

JY
