No surprise that you have replied. I have always followed your QSA Posts on BMF.
Thank you for this information—I was unaware of Robert Edwin Switzer
Regretfully, I am not on FMP, so will consider it to get the other names you mention.
Oops — I meant to say that I do not know the following about Robert Edwin — Rank: Trooper; Service Number: 157 and Unit: Kimberley Horse.
I have just secured his medal on DNW, this past Thursday (haven't received it yet), but the listing on DNW lists his unit as Kimberley Town Guard – so will be interesting when it arrives. Another Switzer (H.A.) is also listed as KTG — perhaps a brother, but his medal is not listed 'as known'.
