Dear All
I have my great grandfathers 1879 South Africa Medal and it has him as Conductor G. Sidmouth Commissariat. I know he was a Troop Sergeant Major in the 1st Royal Dragoons and was then made up to conductor in the transport department in October 1879.
When he retired in 1894 he was made Honary Lieutenant. Was this normal or would he have done something special.
Does anybody know where i can find information about his war years and maybe if he was in any of the battles.?

Hi Fozy
I can tell you Conductor G. Sidmouth was entitled to the Medal with Clasp 1879 which means he crossed the Border into Zululand , as for saying if he was in any of the battles it's near on impossible to say , unless you have his Service Papers which may state if he was or not .

George Sidmouth appears in the 1891 Army List as Quartermaster Army Service Corps with honorary rank of Lieutenant with an effective date of 31 July 1889. The 1891 census shows him in Aldershot with his wife Mary and children Kate (age 14 born Norwich), George James (age 1 born Aldershot) and a servant Mary Patrick (15). By 1901 he is serving at Hounslow with cavalry. It was usual practice to commission a quartermaster as an honorary Lt. when appointed to a unit to reflect their responsibilities (in this case 1st Royal Dragoons).

He performed various and arduous duties over a wide extent of territory, and by his zeal and ability materially conduced to the successful carrying out of the plans of the head of the department.

Thank you all for your input, I have since found out that in 1902 he went from Quartermaster to Lt. then Captain.
I have also got a letter from Ian Hamilton Lt. General thanking him personally for his service. I quess this would be for something in the Transvaal War 1899-1900?

George James born in Aldershot was my grandfather.

Thanks again guys
