I have been working on the 2nd Brabant's Horse nominal roll today and came to Ardern Justin Forder of Brabant's Horse. His prior service includes the Colonial Scouts, 25 November 1899 to 26 January 1900, with whom he earned the RoL clasp, so far the only person to have gained both Wepener and RoL.

His RoL is shown on 242p169. The clasp could be earned by troops in Natal and north of Escourt from 15 December 1899. Forder joined Brabant's Horse a few days after leaving the Colonial Scouts, on 1 February 1900.

His entitlement is QSA (5) CC RoL Wep Witt Belf.

There is no connection on the rolls for the Colonial Scouts and Brabant's Horse so it is possible that he has two medals.

Hello David

There is confirmation on the rolls - he later served as a Lt Rand Rifles, 266p20 and 266p172.



The Brabant's H roll has the abbreviation "HO" standing for "held over", yet the Rand Rifles p20 states it was issued from "/3818" - the Brabant's H roll.

The rolls are never easy!

The Baum pair sold for a hammer price of £750 yesterday so let's hope they were reunited with their other medals in this group.

Hi David

I managed to buy the Baum pair from Warwick and Warwick, so I can confirm that I will be able to make another re-unite , the 2nd re-unite for me containing a Cape LS&GC group.

Adrian
