Anthony,

William Masters attested into the CP on the 1st April 1901 aged 20 years. Born Manchester he was a Groom and Car man.

Awaiting email address.

Anthony,

Donohoe's single clasp QSA is verified in my Kimberley book. The only information I have on him is that he served in the CP dismounted branch (barrier & redoubt duties) during the siege.

Kind regards

Anthony,

It appears that William Joseph Donohoe applied to be a Constable Goaler in 1884 in the Stellenbosch District. He was married to Ellen Mary Donohoe and it also looks as if he died in 1918.

Gentlemen,
I think that any QSA issued to a member of the Cape Police with a Defence of Kimberley clasp is a really superb medal and well worth having.
