Am I right in assuming that the 2/23rd are the Royal Welsh Fusiliers?
Yes indeed, 2nd Bn RWF. Do you have any particular interest in this regiment?
30 officers and 651 other ranks of the 2/23rd are named on the medal roll, with 20 officers and 287 other ranks receiving the Coomassie clasp (for which service North of the Prah river was the basic qualification)
The reason comparatively few served north of the Prah was through no fault of their own. Wolseley's force lacked sufficient numbers of reliable native porters and bearers, and hence some of the army were obliged by lack of transport to remain to the south in the British Cape Coast territory.
They landed at the Cape Coast on 1 Jan 1874. One company was involved in the attack on the village of Borborassie, and those in Wolseley's column were at Amoaful, Becquah, Ordahsu and the entry into Coomassie.
The RWF have the battle honour "Ashantee 1873-74" as do the other infantry regiments involved.
Hopefully a bit more detail for you here (the 23rd are mentioned a few times)http://www.athelstane.co.uk/kingston/so ... ldrs12.htm
I don't have the full casualty figure to hand for the battalion in this campaign right now, but 1 officer, 6 privates and a surgeon are commemorated on a memorial at St Giles Church, Wrexham:
