769 Dhooly Bearer Khayoo (Madras District-Bangalore): present at Belfast, Talana, Defence of Ladysmith & Laing's Nek. Last recorded at Philip Burman's in 2006 where it sold for £220. The same unit took part in the Relief of Chitral.

There is also, in the same auction, the silver medal to 2453 Sowar Hushyar Ali Khan, 2nd Bombay Lancers, clasps Transvaal & South Africa 1902. ( No lot number as yet) Last sold at QC Militaria for £375. Deep pockets may be required since a similar medal to the same Regiment hammered in the rooms of DNW in 2013 for £750. (Although Gary Neate sold one in 2015 for £395)

Looking for Salutries, Salootries and Veterinary Duffadars.

I have found the India Medal roll for Khayoo in the Indian Archives. He did not serve on the Relief of Chitral Force as previously reported. His I.G.S. bears the clasps Punjab Frontier 1897-98, Samana 1897 & Tirah 1897-98. Unfortunately the site bombed out before I could take copies and will not let me back into the file. I mention this because I was also able to find " 591 Dooly Bearer Nucca Goorumoorthy", currently held by a member here.

The reference is "Rwf., 1897-98, Medal Roll of Certain Follower of the Comst. Transport Department Madras"

M68 Driver Mahomed was present during the defence of Ladysmith with the Indian Pack Mule Train and later at Fort Napier. This medal was previously sold in Day's Postal Auction in 1973; in the postal auction through City Coins in 2008 & online by Bid or Buy 2016.

David Grant I was very interested in your posts as I am trying to find records or an Indian who served in the Commissioniers Department for 5 years and also 18 months with the 7th Infantry Brigade and Supply Transport Corps in Africa at the Tirah Campaign and the siege of Ladysmith. He was awarded the Queens Sth Africa Medal. He was then in WWI with AIF but I have that record. Can you please tell me how to find these records as I am in Australia. Are they online? Regards Cris

Hi Cris,
Do you have a name for me? I have the rolls You can search the rolls WO 100 297/8. The India Medal is more hit and miss - not all the rolls are available.
