My Great Great Grandfather Tweed James Blake Linder has medals and a family story that he was responsible for guarding those detained in the camps. He met his wife to be while she was there. The question is - who did he fight for? I can find no record of him in the British Army at all except for a notation in 1912 while in the Natal Mounteds. I can't find anything - can any one point me in the right direction....actually any direction that bears fruit would be awesome!!

I think the first thing you need to do is to look at the medals you mention, which medals are they, do they have any details impressed upon them?

Pending the answer to Frank's question, I cannot see an entry on the QSA rolls. There is a Sergeant J B Linder who earned the Natal 1906 (1) medal with the Northern District Mounted Rifles.
