Lieutenant John Chard: What's our strength? Lieutenant Gonville Bromhead: Seven officers including surgeon, commissaries and so on; Adendorff now I suppose; wounded and sick 36, fit for duty 97 and about 40 native levies. Not much of an army for you.

The then Capt John Fletcher Caldwell 2/24th came home aboard Troopship Tyne arriving at Portsmouth 11.1.1879 thus missing the conflict with the Zulu. He later commanded 2nd Battalion South Wales Borderers 9.6.1882-9.6.1886.

Gary,

In my opinion Ray is using a digital version of a Hart’s Army List, if there were a date included we might be able to draw a conclusion.

The entry appears in the 1887 copy of Hart’s Army List, in his defence Ray has correctly transcribed it as it appears.

The National Library of Scotland provides an excellent online research platform to study various editions of Hart’s.

Hi Pete
If Caldwell arrived in Portsmouth on Jan 11.... he couldn't have been in the Zulu War as your post suggests , the Invasion started on Jan 11 th , Caldwell possibly left even before the Ultimatum was read to the Zulu's on Dec 11th 1878 ! , the trip took a month at least to get back to the UK .
90th Very Happy

90th,

There is no 'If' about Caldwell's whereabouts - He is shown as arriving at Portsmouth aboard the Tyne on 11 January 1879 - with 1 drummer and 12 rank & file - this is in the Embarkation Ledgers WO25/3510 (page 160) held in National Archives. Also his service record WO76/233 indicates that he did not serve in South Africa at the time of AZW although was entitled to the campaign medal (with clasp 1887-8) for his earlier service in Frontier War 1878. You can download WO76/233 from National Archives - its free!
