Hi everyone, i have recently found a medal for sale with an "1879" bar, to a Pte T. Askew of the 1/24th. Was wondering whether anyone could give me anymore info on this particular individual, i.e service history, age, and is the limited info i have correct? Regards Dicki555

Hi Dicki555

Welcome to the forum.

The only information I have at the moment is the following

Thomas Askew
His regimental service number was 25B/303. Enlisted at Manchester, Lancashire 20th June 1874, aged 23 years 11 months. Transferred to Army Reserve prior to 16th November 1880. South Africa with Clasp 1877-8-9.

Many thanks for your quick response. Would love to find out, where he served during the war. Any idea where i could come by this information, i.e where he was on the day of the 22nd January etc........... Thanks again 1879graves.
