Sorry it has taken a while to get back to you.
There are quite a few medals in that case, please can you identify which are those belonging to Evans?
And is the photograph that of Evans?

Obviously the SJAB Bronze belongs to Evans, if the QSA & KSA also belong to him, he could have changed his unit, (i.e. RAMC , SAC, or various others) as he must have been in S.A. for 18 months or more.

His SJAB Bronze would only account for 6 months service, unless he went back for a second tour.

I hope this is not confusing you.

I would need his number, rank, name, and unit served in, as shown on each individual medal before I could try and help further. This information is well worth recording, so thanks for posting.

James.

Hello again - I am not sure where to turn for help tracing what happened to my Great-Uncle William Carey born 1881 in Hebden Bridge, and whether this is the appropriate forum in which to post this query. William's brother Ernest Carey was killed in the Boer War (and we received great help with information about him when we first joined this site). Fairly recently we discovered a medal being sold with W Carey's name on it - we are not sure whether this is the person we are looking for but,as we have a photo of 'William' in uniform with a cross on his arm, it is quite possible...........but we simply cannot find anything about him. This is the medal that was for sale - we have tried contacting the auctioneers but have not received a response - can anyone please tell us if the uniform William is wearing is likely to have been worn in the Boer War - and is anything known about the medal.
