Drummers in the 92nd Highrs on campaign in
Afghanistan and at Majuba.
The Afghan medal roll for the 92nd Highlanders reveals that medals were awarded to 16 drummers
out of approximately 870 medals in total. This would suggest than less than one in fifty are named to
that rank.

always in the thick of things:
