  1. I am trying to track down information on a little known military action which involved armed forces based in the British Central Africa Protectorate, in 1898. the action is known as the Angoni Rebellion, or the Angoni Uprising. The forces involved were around 600 in total, mostly local Africans, with Sikh NCOs and British Officers. A good description of the action is here: http://www.kaiserscross.com/188001/214822.html Participants were given the Central Africa Medal. I would appreciate any help in finding sources of information, especially if anyone knows of collections of private papers. One officer is mentioned in the article on kaiserscross - Lieutenant J S Brogden, Royal Marines Light Infantry - is of particular interest. Many thanks!
