Hi.
I've just joined the web-site. My interest is prompted by researching my grandfather, who it turns out was in the Matabeleland Relief Force in 1896, having previously been a Jameson Raider. This I discovered only in January this year, having identified one of his medals as being the BSAC Medal for the Rhodesia campaign. He was on the Harlech Castle repatriation voyage, but can anyone suggest where I might look to find his first outward voyage, and then his second trip to join the MRF? He was back in UK in April 1897 as he married by grandmother that month! Any suggestions gratefully received
Many thanks
Chris

There is a researcher called Cam Simpson who has been researching Jameson Raiders for some years now.

Does anyone have a contact email for Cam?

This may, or may not, be relevant, but is there some confusion as to where Edward M. Rogers, of the Jameson Raiders, came from? His address is listed as "Bichford, Perbridge, Staffs.", which would seem to actually be Bickford Grange, Penkridge, Staffs. The Rogers family was still resident there into the 1930s. www.thegazette.co.uk/London/issue/33990/page/6993/data.pdf
