Hello,

I'm Geoff and I live in Suffolk. I am interested in military history in general. My particular interest in this forum is because of my great grandmother's brother, Thomas Hicks, who was a soldier of the 1/24th Regiment of Foot. He was killed at Isandlwana.

Welcome Geoff. A grim but significant way to be connected to such a famous historic battle.
There is plenty of information available regarding this battle, hopefully there may be a photo of him that still exists.

HI Geoff,
With regards to Private Thomas Hicks his number was 1856, he was posted to Service Companies 15/4/1872. His father claimed his effects and he was entitled to the South Africa medal with clasp for 1877-8-9. That is all the information I have on this soldier.
cheers
Richie
