After leaving service would Frank Bigmore have had turn in his helmet? As far as the family knows it never came back with him. He served with the Natal police for a bit towards the end of his stay. We have some discharge papers, portions of a diary which recorded camps and dates, events that occurred from Oct 1899 into end of 1901. Also a medal and a sword, a few Zulu mementos.
