Hi everyone and thanks for any advice In advance. I know very little about the 2nd Boer War, but my Great Grandfather served with Durham Light Infantry and I am trying to find out which clasps he may have received so I can have a new set made, them being previously stolen. I have a citation for his DCM and MiD from WW1, but only a picture of the medals recieved in Africa, which are generic and show no claps. I'm a newcomer to the site and hope to take advantage of the huge amount of knowledge available here. Regards Jack
