Looking through 'the Noble 24th', I noted there were approx 27 men of the 1/24th noted as serving in 'H' Company at St Helena 1876-77 and I guess there is a pretty good chance most were still in this ...

Hi Peter

Very interesting what you've written about the Edendale leaders , I've read some of the biographies of these men in Huw Jone's book (mind boggles as to how he put such a work together), bu ...

Peter, I think you've hit the nail on the head when you mention it being natural to appoint both a spiritual and military leader. From the letters JZM felt he was in charge but the likes of Henderson ...
