W. Cunningham is on the Roll for the 3rd Cape Mtd Yeomanry he was entitled to the Medal with 77 -78 -79 Clasp
His medal was returned to Woolwich . There is also a W. Cunningham 157 FLH 1879 Medal & Clasp , this is probably the same man . He isnt mentioned on the Rolls for Bettington's Horse or Pulleine's Rangers .
