Coincidentally, I took delivery today of the first Devonshire Regiment QSA in my collection. It was awarded to a man who was also in the 2nd Battalion and who also took part in the Battle of Colenso. He was more fortunate than Sgt Amner, but still had the misfortune to be taken prisoner by the Boers. I will post a write-up about him later.
Regards
Brett
