Thank you Rory
Where did you find this info
What unit was he in and what service action did he see and what was the reason for the clasp
He worked for the Public Works Dept based in Maritzburg and was involved with work on bridges -Hella Hella and Umgenii
I have pictures of these and other related subjects including monuments of a cemetery and a memorial, but unable to upload
Thanks again
Clive

Hi Clive

Aside from Stalker (who is difficult to find), there is a definitive history available free of charge through the Internet Archive - this is A History of the Zulu Rebellion by James Stuart. If you type Carbineers in the search box you will be rewarded by what actions they saw.

Apropos the details of your relative I posted, these are from the NC Muster Rolls. My copy of the Natal Civil Service List (1907), page 72, confirms that R.M. Stone was a Draughtsman and Field Assistant in the Northern District. Having been first appointed on 2 March 1901, he was still there in 1907 on an annual income of 331 GBP.

Regards

Rory

Hi. Rory
Thanks for the details
I have RMS Discharge Certificate which states that this was completed 31 July 1909 as he had left the colony
It also states 108 days active service
Does this mean he was a reserve when not on active service and continuing in employment (Public Works Department based Mairitzberg )
Where can l find his regiment and hopefully details of his active service and reason for the clasp
I have several photos of him during this time
David has kindly uploaded two photos and l am hoping that the memorial
/cemeteries can be identified so l can see if they represented places he saw action, or if he visited them, being scenes of previous actions
Thanks again for your help
Clive

Can anyone identify these monuments or cemetery and their locations and what they commemorate and the date of the action ?
