Hi


I have a CGHGS medal engraved (correctly in my opinion) to Corporal W S Eckin, Cape Mounted Rifles.

The Forsyth and Owen Medal Rolls give the spelling as Cpl W S Eeekin, CMR

I think he may be Captain Walter Sydney Elkin, since a Cpt W S Elkin was MID for Kimberley TG. Walter Sydney Elkin, died in 1920 ?

Can anybody help ?


Regards

Adrian

Hello Adrian,

I think this is your man. From the CMR defaulters book and the discharge register.

Adrian,

W S Elkin commanded D company of the KTG during the siege.

I do not have an original CGHGSM roll but another Adrian may be able to help with CMR records. www.foxhole.co.za/say-hello/
