For those interested, attached is a file giving the dates and ships used by Jameson Raiders who returned to fight in the Matabeleland campaign. It may not be completely comprehensive as I assembled it from individual passenger lists and so may have missed some Raiders, especially any travelling independently: my clue to identifying Raiders was large groups of English single men in their 20s travelling on the same ticket (often in groups of 10). I then cross-checked with lists of Raiders. While some passenger lists gave their occupation as 'police' there were more stating 'prospector' or 'miner' - perhaps trying to hide the fact that they were quickly returning!

I've tried to load a copy of the manifest but the file size is too large (just under 1 MB) - if you are interested, perhaps you could 'PM' your email address and I will send it through. Did you know he was Irish?

Thank you Chris - I have sent you a PM. Pyke is one of those medals I have yet to bite my teeth into, research-wise, so any additional info will be of assistance.

Regards

Rory
