Adrian,

That is a wonderful Kimberley group. He's not the only Defender who went on to serve in Damant's Horse after the siege.

I will look for a picture of Schmidt's.

With thanks
David

Just got this one. I have no information about him, apart from the fact that the medal roll says he deserted on 7 October 1903! Research in the past has failed to come up with service papers. Any information gratefully received!

Patrick,

You are on a roll!

The medal roll for this man suggests the authorities tried to recover his medal after the desertion but that they failed to do this so this is a medal that should no longer be around?
