This is NOT in my collection.

Queen's South Africa, with clasps Orange Free State and Cape Colony officially named to : 9540 Trooper T. Caswell, 54th Coy 13th IY.

Tpr. Caswell was one of those taken prisoner in the famous "Yeomanry Disaster" at Lindley on 31st May 1900. serving in the Belfast Company of IY. He was released later. His service papers state that he was a draper from Newtown Hamilton, Armagh. He enlisted in Belfast on 8 Jan. 1900 and served one year abroad. He was released on 15 June 1901. The rolls show he was entitled to the 1901 clasp.
