hello
I am attempting to research Lieutenant J H Ward.
From Harts Army Lists 1901 he is recorded as a member of the Worcestershire Yeomanry and it indicates he was "Press Censor" from 9th May 1900.
I am trying to find out in what locality / localities he was acting as Censor during May to December 1900.
I am assuming he remained attached to his regiment - the Worcestershire Yeomanry but I do not know where they were located during this time.
I would be really grateful for any information regarding the locality of the regiment between May and December 1900.
Thanks and best wishes.

JBJ,

There is a Lieutenant, the Honourable J B Ward listed on the roll for Army Headquarters staff, South Africa (WO100/299p18). Is this the same man?



His QSA clasps are CC, Driefontein, Diamond Hill and Befast. These help to locate him. To gain Belfast, he would have had to be in the area on 27 August 1900. For the other clasps, have a look at this page: www.angloboerwar.com/medals-and-awards/b...s-south-africa-medal

This would appear to be him.

This is from the 1905 Army List:

Thank you for your time and effort.
His medal entitlement is a good indicator for his locality. The information from the 1905 Army list is most helpful. It would appear from this that as a Press Censor he was located at 'Head Quarters.' I am assuming that would be the HQ for the Imperial Yeomanry. as he was aide to Major Gen. John Palmer Brabazon.
