|3rd January 2005||24th Regiment Photo Enquiry|
Greetings and Happy New Year,
I am writing to ask whether any Regimental photos exist from this period.
My Gt. Gt. Grandfather served with 1st Bn. from 1872 to 1879. Having searched the Muster Rolls at Kew, I was able to trace their posting .. Gibraltar, St Helena, Natal, etc.
He was not killed at Isandlwhana, nor was he present at Rorke's Drift - as his enlistment papers state his trade to have been 'Groom', I assume he could have been at Helpmakaar.
Itt would be great to have a print of any such pictures.
Thanks for any assistance.
