Dear David

when Churchill met up with Stewart and Wagner he said I will see that you will be rewarded for what you did. Churchill had to wait till 1919 when he became Home Secretary to keep his word and reward the 2 men.

Note the comment about Wagner being wounded. Wagner kept in touch with Churchill for many year but Stewart was a quiet man and kept to himself.

How I acquired this group is a story in itself and one day I will tell it.

Kind regards

Munroe

Hi Munroe

Exceptional items that you bring out of your treasure chest!!

Many years ago I tried to add the AM group to my collection but I was 100% unsuccessful. Good for you to have landed it.

To fit in with the Armoured train incident : medals to 3 men.


Godfrey: One of only 2 men to have received medals for both Boer Wars. There were no campaign medal for the First Boer War, only gallantry awards. At Chieveley he was a Ganger and wounded in the incident.

Frost: Frost was the Guard of the Armoured Train. Family rumour had it that he was totally unimpressed when two of his colleagues got AM's and he awarded himself a second QSA, privately engraved Guard F Frost N.G.R Armoured Train. His original Qsa is impressed Guard F.Frost Natal Govt. Rlwys.

Scully: Scully was one of the Rl Dublin Fusiliers men who were taken PoW in the Armoured Train mishap.

Henk
