I am helping someone with research to Thomas Henry Brockensha. The QSA with Talana is confirmed, but need to confirm the SAGS, 1879 named to Conductor, Transport Dept. and Natal 1906 named to T. H. Brokensha Intelligence Officer. He does not appear on either the paper medal roll or the one on this site. I append his entry from Who's Who.


Can anyone assist with confirming the SAGS and 1906?

Thanks
Jon

Jon,

He is proving to be a challenge. He is not on my SAGS list (nor any near matches in the Commissariat & Transport Dept). I have been leafing through WO100/77 but have yet to come across his name.

Morning David
I will be seeing these medals this weekend so will confirm the naming. He came to Natal in 1875, so he was a Colonial, but I suspect he was a contracted civilian transport conductor, not part of the British army. Will keep you posted

Hi John

Somewhere in the deep recesses of my mind I recall this group being discussed. I wish I could remember where...

I seem to think there was something untoward about it but you will be able to judge for yourself when you see them.

After seeing this group, I was disappointed to see all had been re-named, I like to think by the recipient himself who thought he was entitled to them
