You're welcome.

You could try posting in,300.0.html too, or browse and read in there.

Also putting his name with that information in google, I see him possibly in

Happy hunting.

I have just had an e-mail from a cousin who has his medals .appparently he was in 18th Hussars and was mentioned in dispatches by a General French and was in South Africa in 1901The tree on Ancestry is probably my daughters as I know she started one Thankyou evey one for their help

He is in a public tree in ancestry - maybe it is yours? The Boer War is not mentioned, but does state his occupation as Staff Seargent Major Yeomanry.

This may or may not be him mentioned in
