25B/2192 Pte W Wheeler was transferred to 1/23rd Regiment and was awarded the medal with the 1879 clasp (Source: Noble 24th, Norman Holme).
He was not at Isandhlwana.

Seeing you auction medals - you could do the research yourself and track down his documents in the National Archives (not available on-line) in box WO97/2136 or WO97/4142 depending when he was discharged. A copy of the service paapers would add value to the medal.
