Hi Peter
Freshney and his medal have been discussed in other threads on this forum and in the the one below I gave the full reference for the publication about him.
angloboerwar.com/forum/17-memorials-and-...-horse-memorial#6613

I still have a photocopy of the paper, but it is packed away and not readily accessible. This copy was made at the Library of the Ditsong National Museum of Military History, and it might be quicker for you to get a copy there than for me to retrieve and copy mine. Please send me a Private Message to tell me which course you want to follow.

Regards
Brett

Hi

In Brett Hendey's first note on this topic, he wondered if any such single clasp medal is known to be in existence.

The pair of medals issued to Blakeway exists, where the Queen's medal has a single `Tugela Heights' clasp, named to `722 Trp: N. C. Blakeway. Imp. Lt Horse'. He was also issued with a BSA Co. Medal with the 1896 reverse.

Blakeway joined `A' Squadron of the ILH at Estcourt on 2 October 1899 and was killed in action during the Battle of Colenso on 15 December 1899.

Best regards
Peter

Hi Peter
I was very pleased to read that Blakeway's QSA has come to light. Its pairing with a BSACo Medal makes it a very special group. Is the BSACo Medal named to the Natal Troop?

Brett
