:woohoo: Unknown as a single clasp to Colonial Units according to MG Hibbard in a paper presented to the Second South African Numismatic Convention in 1964.
Looking for Salutries, Salootries and Veterinary Duffadars.
I collect primarily QSAs to Indian Recipients.

I had a look for "3709 Tpr. W.Cope SALH" in the Palmer casualty roll and no luck. I had a look in my Cavalry CD and there are only x2 "W.Copes" on that; 4314 Cpl and 4615 Pte and both from 12th Lancers. A mystery, indeed.

Adrian,

That is certainly intriguing. Belfast is his sole entitlement on the SALH roll.

There are other W Copes on the roll but none appear to be him.

I cannot locate any information on his demise. He is not listed on the SALH nominal roll either.

I did think the 'killed' may have related to the man below Cope on the roll and, while there was a man of this name who died, he was from the WRR.

QSA (1) Belf (4159 Pte. W. Muckersie, 10th. Hussars)

William Muckersie served with the 10th Hussars in South Africa during the Boer War, and died of disease at Rustenberg on 24 December 1900. The published casualty roll lists him as ‘Mackersie’ in the 9th Lancers. Believed to be just 9 single ‘Belfast’ clasps to the 10th Hussars, all to men on attachment to the 6th Dragoons.
