Try 8 January 1806 - I have walked the site on 200th anniversary with U.K. High Commissioner Paul Boateng in 2006.

Well done Kenny, lets keep it at that and see if anyone can identify the location. Incidently would any award/medal have been awarded or would it just be a regimental award?

Frank

Having made the post, I remembered that the 24th did get awarded the famous SPHINX with Egypt in 1801. For 1806, as far as I can tell there were no awards to individuals and then the battle honour was only granted in 1824. In 1881 when the honour for South Africa 1877-8-9 was granted, the date 1806 was added to the earlier award to avoid confusion.

Odd that the Military General Service Medal didn’t extend to the Cape of Good Hope, given that the clasp ‘Java’ was authorised for another action against the Dutch.
