10th April 2005Where would he have been at Isandhlwana
By Peter Harman
In Julian Whybra's book (ENGLAND'S SONS)
Page 3 (1-24/678 Jno. Harman is listed)
Does anyone know what officer he would have been under. And where would Harman have been during the battle.

I regret the muster rolls of the individual companies of the 1/24th have not survived. All I can you he was not one of those station on St Helena with Wardell and Cavaye in 1876-77.

Martin is quite correct. This means that he was not in Wardell's H coy.

Another illustration of the issue of an incorrect clasp, perhaps.
