Hi all, have asked a few questions regarding a Pte T. Askew (1/24th), as i didnt have a clue how to get any info on the guy. I have now got two more names i wouldnt mind getting some info on if anybody could help, (Great job, last time 1879graves). The two individuals are A.) L/CPL N. Fortune 2/24th and B.) PTE J. Ferraby 2/24th. Both men received the South Africa medal, but that is all i know! Kind regards for your help so far. Dicki555

PostSubject: recievers of S.A.Medal   Sat Oct 02, 2010 2:00 am

hi Dicki555.
Pvt. John Farraby 2770 2 / 24th .
South Africa Medal without Clasp , Long Service and Good conduct Medal 1 / 7 / 85 .
No Clasp means he didnt cross the river into Zululand .

Lce- Corp. N. Fortune 25B / 771 2 / 24th.
Appointed Lce-Corp 11 / 3 /78 , Returned to Pvt , Date unknown , Appointed Lce. Corp 23 / 1 / 79 . South Africa War Medal
with Clasp 77-78-79 .

There was a Pvt. Michael Fortune 25B / 738 2 / 24th . Killed in Action 22 /1 /79 Isandlwana
and a Pvt. James . Fortune 25B/ 459 1 / 24th also killed in action at Isandlwana , Wonder if those three
were related ?. This information from ' The Noble 24th by Norman Holme '.

I see the Ferraby medal is for sale at Liverpool Medals for 450 pds and the N. Fortune Medal also for sale at 1,175 pds .
cheers 90th.
