This chaps medal is now in my possession. A member of the Vryheid, Commando, he was resident at Newcastle when he enlisted, making him a scarce Natal Rebel. Two of his sons served with him and his youngest son, who was too young for the war, was able to claim his medal.

It was a very late claim - although officially named and issued, in 1960

Regards

Rory
