Does anyone have information about Pvte 2122 W. Clifton and his service in the 1/24th during the Zulu Wars?

Only one War in 1879. Clifton looks to be a replacement who volunteered to serve in the 24th after the losses at Isandhlwana. Would have joined 1/24th at Dundee on 4 May. You could see where his service papers have survived in the National Archives at Kew. I expect he returned to his original regiment when the 1/24th returned to UK in September 1879.

Thank you for your help! Of course there was only one Zulu War... just a little typo on my end.
