Hi all, I have already created a thread and found out some great information on this ancestor of mine thanks to some excellent membes of this site who helped me, however it was more of a general discussion thread and I thought I would create a follow-on one in the correct area of the forum. (original thread here >
I am looking for the Queen's South Africa medal for -
6367 Pte.W.Wright - Rifle Brigade
The medal is missing from the set photographed above and I have his KSA and his QSA ribbon
I have been informed that he had the clasps:
Orange Free State
I am desperate to find it, I really hope it is still out there and that I can reunite it with the rest of my ancestors medals one day
Have a good look around both your close and distant family, the other medals and badges are all there, I noticed the original QSA ribbon in your photo, I think!
It seems far more likely in my opinion, that the QSA is around with a another family member, I feel sure that if you were going to pawn one medal, you would let other items go too!
Medals often got spit up, with each family member taking one!
If not then, the internet is the way to go, good luck Josh.
Hi Josh is 6367 Pte. W. Wright - Rifle Brigade, the same W.Wright, Esq.of the rifle brigade who married Elizabeth Hooper, eldest daughter of the Rev.Thomas Hooper, rector of Yatton Keynell, and of Castle Combe, Wiltshire?
Kind regards Lisa Cook
