Does anyone have any info regarding Pte. James Marshall. The info I have is as follows: he attested on the 4/12/1876 aged 20 years 9months. He joined the reserves on the 28/6/1883 and was discharged 4/12/1888. He was definitely at Rorke's Drift. I'm also trying to find out were and when he was born, if he had any brothers and the names of his father and/or mother. I've tried working back on the dates, to try workout when he might have been born, but have recently discovered that he was arrested at some stage for fraudulent enlistment - I'm assuming he lied about his age, and this would throw all calculations way off.
Any help will be appreciated.

His mother was M. Marshall, Hitchin, Hertfordshire and James Marshall was a chimney sweep. Not much sorry.
