There are a number of SAGS for sale at Dixons - good range across most Imperial Regiments - including 13th, 58th , 90th and a number of KDG. All reasonably priced. Good Xmas presents for the wives Very Happy 

Picked up an interesting Medal to a trooper frrom Bettintons Horse. Who knows he could be one of the six with the Prince Imnperial when he was killed. Gives me something t research over xmas.

Regards

Hi Sergio
Maybe this may help
Members of 3 troop Bettingtons Horse
Sgt R Willis
Cprl J Grubb
Trp R Cochrane
Trp Le Tocq
Trp W Abel
Trp G Roberts.

Interesting thing is that there is a possibility that some of these were with the 3rd Reg NNC before it was disbanded after iSandlwana.

Cheers

( Now you have more time to eat drink and be merry )Very Happy

Thanks Frank unfortunately not my guy Trooper Bowden - now I can spend the time reading my Xmas presents - the two Sonia Clarke books which my wife has rather remarkably bought me. Aparently she checked my book collection first (worrying in itself - will have to watch additions early next year) and then bought the half leather bound limited editions . Salute 

Clearly she is looking for Diamonds this year - I wonder if a Diamonds Field Horse SAGS would do the job.

Hi Sergio
Could be interesting to check your man Bowden back against the 3rd NNC, he may just pitch up there.
Enjoy the Clarkes they really are an exceptional read, gives a great insight into Clery in particular.
I offered to take my wife to Natal for a week over xmas, all I got was "are you bloody mad?" Could be she saw the itinerary !

Cheers

Haha I took my wife and 3 sons to Fugitives drift - although I had to bribe them with a safari in Kruger and some golf. They were totally blown away by the trips to the Isandlwana and Rorkes Drift (as well as a trip to Spion Kop). They still talk about how friendly and welcoming everyone was including how helpful a village was in sorting out some damage on the car (following an encounter with a particularly nasty pot hole) whilst the boys played an impromptu football match with about 25 children!!

Hi Sergio.
Certainly a nice wide spread of Medals from a few different regiments . I dont think you'll be disappointed in the Clarke books , I have both , but have only read ' Zululand At War ' , excellent reading the letters form those who were there .
Diamond Fields Horse may do the job , Diamonds are diamonds arent they !  Very Happy   Very Happy . Are there any details on Bowden in the Terry Sole book ? .

Hi Springy .
I think you'll find it's Trpr Rogers , not Roberts . Abel and Rogers being the two who were killed with the Prince Imperial .
So it didnt quite happen with the missus off to Natal ? . I'm not surprised once she saw the itinerary LOL X Many .

Cheers 90th  Salute

Hi 90th no doubt you are enjoying the cricket!!. Not anything specific in Sole - confirms the medal and lots of background on the death of the PI.
Coincidently I was half way through Ian knight's excellent With his Face to the Foe - when I saw this medal on Sunday - highly coincidental!!

regards
