I received this from Tim Needham.

Just in case any of your forum members are interested, I've had a plaque presented
to the Royal Welsh Museum in memory of the five 24th Regiment Boys killed at Isandlwana.



An original memorial to Boys Daniel Gordon & James Gurney in the Watford Workhouse Chapel
unfortunately seems to have gone missing since the building was demolished in the 1960s, and
after reading about it on the West Watford History Group site
http://www.westwatfordhistorygroup.org/stbarnabaschapel.htm
I decided to look into having some kind of replacement produced; as a suitable location
in the Watford area could not easily be found, it was decided to commemorate all
five Boys instead & Bill Cainan at Brecon very kindly offered the Zulu War room.

I would like to acknowledge the help of the current owners of Daniel Gordon's South Africa
medal in raising the funds needed.
