Paul,

You did have a good day.

The QSA roll (WO100/237p13) confirms his CC clasp. There is also a note querying whether he also served as 1106 in Uitenhage TG.

The Supplementary Roll (WO100/237p128) has the SA01 clasps with most of the names pencilled through.

Best wishes
David

Paul,

The Uitenhage roll (WO100/286p47) has a J G Beckford with again a note querying the link to your man. It looks like a no clasp medal was issued to J G and returned to the Mint.

David

Thank you for the extra information.
Would that mean that he actually served with the TG
