|20th June 2005||Lieutenant Geathly|
By David Weir
I am trying to track down the record of an action in which a Lieutenant Geathly was killed or for which he was awarded a medal.
I should be grateful for any assistance. Thank you.

Any first name?
Is he relation?
Where was he born?
When was he born?
When did he die?
I'm sure i've missed something?
Hope this helps?

And, if at Waterloo, which platform?

As you've found your way to this site, I'm assuming that you believe the soldier to whom you refer to have taken part in the Anglo-Zulu War of 1879.
His Army records may well be held in The National Archives at Kew - can I recommend you start your search there? Have a look at their website before you go(http://www.nationalarchives.gov.uk/).

No-one by the name of Geathly appears to have been awarded the campaign medal for 1879.
I can find no record in the 1879 Army List of such a name either.
Can you enlighten us more or are looking in the wrong place?
