SAGS (1) 1879 (543. Pte. W. Trowell. 1/24th Foot.)

Together with a 24th Foot helmet plate excavated from the battlefield at Isandhlwana, this in excavated condition, the medal polished with some scratching in obverse field.

William Trowell was born on 13 July 1860, and attested for the 25th Brigade as a Boy on 24 August 1874. Appointed to the 1/24th Foot he was killed in action at the battle of Isandhlwana on 22 January 1879. His effects were claimed by his brother and sister. Confirmed in The Noble 24th by Norman Holme but his Christian name incorrectly given as Edward.

SAGS (1) 1877-8 (1853 PTE D. PHILLIPS. 2/24TH FOOT).

Spink say the number 1853 engraved in error for the correct number 1383 (verified and authenticated by Zulu War expert Norman Holme).

1383 Private David Phillips attested at Brecon April 23, 1877. He served in "A" Company, 2nd Battalion, 24th Regiment. He was killed in action at the Battle of Isandhlwana, January 22, 1879. He was entitled to the "1879" clasp. His "Effects [were] claimed by his mother, brother and sisters. Medal and clasp '1877-8-9' issued on 14/11/81". On original ribbon. Lightly toned. Extremely Fine. Set in a handsome 13 x 23 ½ frame with Regimental hat badge and belt buckle on green cloth background with brass informational placard (Zulu misspelled "Zula").
