The reference to "Royal Garrison ARTILLERY" in my initial reply was an error; the extract from "Boer War Services of Military Officers" SHOULD have read "Lt., Royal Garrison REGIMENT". Brain snap - sorry about that. Four Bns. of the Royal Garrison Regiment were sent to SA in 1904 for simple garrison duty; training, etc. As the conflict ended in 5/02, no medal for that. The RGR was disbanded in 1908.
On the WO100/193 medal roll for the 2nd Northamptons, on page 2 I saw "2nd Lt. A.G.L. Pepys" as entitled to clasps Cape Colony. Orange Free State and Transvaal on his QSA medal.
If you are certain that your man was present on the Jameson Raid and subsequently served in Rhodesia, you need to somehow make the link. I would have thought that a man who saw through four campaigns would want to see his diverse service reflected in official records.
Keep us posted about your discoveries.

Hi

Pepys is shown as a Trooper in the Jameson Raid, and as a Prisoner.

See Keith-case.com article.

Thank you for your reply,

Yes that's right and no need to apologise. So that means that he must have fought with the Northamptonshire Regiment in the Boer War and then with the Royal Garrison Regiment afterwards. I was wondering where the "Railway Staff Officer" came into it though?

I am certain that my man did indeed serve along this period of time, let me show you his medals! I was keen to find his service records but they do not appear available online? Only 2 brief pages from the Boer War but nothing from the Great War.

Hi Adrian,

Where can I find this article? I'm afraid the link has not worked.

Kindest Regards,

Andrew

There is a roll for Jameson Raiders here: www.angloboerwar.com/other-information/8...754-the-jameson-raid

For Pepys, his entry states:

Unit: B. troop. Nationality: English. Age: 20, Address: 61 Porchester Terrace, London.

Did he have an older brother also in the Raid?

Pepys, John, Corporal

Unit: G. troop. Nationality: English. Age: 24, Address: 61 Porchester Terrace, Bayswater, London.
