Hi Brian,

I really appreciate your reply and the information you have given me. Thank you.

Also, I apologise, David, for my sort of intrusion here as this grandfather did not participate in the Anglo-Boer War, although my maternal grandfather did.

As I could not upload the portrait, I will do as you have suggested, David.

Thanks to all.

Bruce.

Thanks Bruce and David, much appreciate your efforts.

I was once told this painting is in the NMR HQ but another source said it was at the Highbury school?

Yes, the portrait is in the Highbury School museum and can be seen here: www.hps.co.za/old-boys#3d-video

Are there photographs of my grandfather's medals to be seen in this forum?

Thanks,

Bruce.
