Hi everyone, new to all this so any help given would be greatly appreciated.
Im trying to find anything really on my Grandad, Charles George Francis, Private 3579 , 1st Battalion Northumberland Fusiliers.
He was born in Norwich around January 1885, so that would have made him 14 years old at the start of the Boer War ?
Apparantly he was wounded 3rd March 1901 in Lichtenburg.
Any further info on him would be brilliant
Welcome to the Forum. The medal rolls for the 1st NF show your "3579 Pte. C.Francis" as entitled to the clasps Cape Colony, Orange Free State and Transvaal on his QSA and the usual date clasps on his KSA. The Palmer Casualty roll shows your GF as "slightly wounded" at Lichtenburg on 3/3/1901. If you have access to a commercial site, you may be able to access his personal papers - which may be of interest.
