"SIR BARTLE COMPTON ARTHUR FRERE , Major, Baronet, was born on 24 October 1854, only son of the Right Honourable Sir H Bartle E Frere, GCB, GCSI (1st Baronet), and Catherine, daughter of Lieutenant General the Right Honourable Sir George Arthur (1st Baronet). He was educated at Eton and Trinity College, Cambridge, taking his BA degree, and was gazetted to the Rifle Brigade; served in the Zulu War in 1879 (Medal with clasp); in the Bechuanaland Expedition in 1884-85 (Brevet of Major). For his services in the Burma Campaign of 1886-88 he received the Medal and clasp, and was created a Companion of the Distinguished Service Order [London Gazette, 3 August 1888]: "For services during the operations in Burma, Sir Bartle Compton Arthur Frere, Baronet, Captain and Brevet Major, The Rifle Brigade". The Decoration was awarded for services in command of the mounted infantry of his regiment, the 1st Rifle Brigade, in the operations against the Dacoits in Upper Burma, including the pursuit and capture of Boh-Toke-Ji, a noted Dacoit chief. He succeeded his father as 2nd Baronet in 1884, and retired from the Army 6 December 1893".

In the Foryth Roll we have Lt B Frere 60th ( The King's Royal Rifle Corps ) only 3 others from this regt in the Forsyth Roll , those being Bvt - Major E.J.Fryer ( Also had the Indian Mutiny Medal ) , Capt G.S.Byng ( Also had Indian Mutiny Medal with Clasp Lucknow )
Capt R.B.Lane and of course our man Frere , all the above entitled to the Medal with 1879 Clasp . Not to confuse this Roll with the 3 /60th ( The King's Royal Rifle Corps ) .
90th. Very Happy
