I cam across this forum and was trying to find out more about how one can go about s claiming a medal. I spoke to a gentleman a while back from one of the South African Boer war site mentioned that family can claim medals that have not been claimed if they can prove it. I have affidavit that mentions the war my great great... grandfather fought in and under which and it mentions the regiment I am not sure if that is the correct terminology but its the only way I could describe it.
He was a Commando. If anyone can help me or give me some advice I would greatly appreciate it. As I would like to see if I could get it as it is a part of my history and that of my children that I would like to pass down very sentimental.
Thanks to you all in advance for any help and advice
I have had a look at that already and keep having to say the same thing over and over my George Henry Parker fought for the Boer side.
As I am very aware of the difference between the regiments, hence the reason I asked.
Although he was originally from the UK somewhere where with out a shadow of dought it was the boer side he fought for I will need to go through my notes and find the copy of the affidavit and post a copy if that will help clarify things.
