I was fortunate to acquire a QSA to an Officer, one Edmund Henry Allott of the 3rd Battalion, Lincs. Regiment. The medal is correctly engraved in running script and comes with his WWI trio (Lt. ASC on Star, Capt.on BWM and VM) and 1911 Coronation Medal.
Allott seems to have been a resident of Melsetter in Rhodesia from 1929 until his death.
Information of the Lincs Regt for the ABW appears to be quite scant. Is there anywhere I should be looking? And, does anyone know anything about the man?
Not sure there is that much on the Lincolnshire in the Boer War. Happy to be corrected though!
I did find a little on your man:
