PostSubject: Trooper K Lopela - Sheptone's Native Horse KIA   Mon Mar 14, 2016 8:35 am

Hello Everyone

I have this in my collection, its 4cm by 3.5cm in size. Its dated 1879 and named to Trooper K Lobela. On looking at the medal roll, Trooper K Lobela of the Shepstone's Native Horse, was killed in action at Ulundi on 4th July 1879.

Does anyone have an idea as to the what this medal is and for what purpose it was issued. Was it only issued to Natives? Is this some sort of decoration for bravery to natives?

Regards
Anthony
