xhosa,

Able Seaman Samuel Dawson
31 Mar 1852 born in Crumpsell, Lancashire
24 Feb 1868 Dawson joined the Royal Navy; Official Number 72630
1870 While a Boy 2nd Class aboard HMS Donegal he signed on for 10 years; Continuous Service Number 4797B
From 1873 to 1876 he served aboard HMS Glasgow, “Excellent,” “Duke of Wellington,” “Asia,” and back to the “Duke of Wellington.”
14 Aug 1876 He was appointed to HMS Shah in the Pacific where he served during the engagement with the “Huascar”;  and in 1879 he served ashore with the Naval Brigade during the Zulu War, for which he was entitled to the South Africa Medal with “1879” clasp
After returning to England he was assigned to the Naval Barracks where he remained until 9 Apr 1880 when he was discharged to shore.  His continuous service had expired.
May 1880 he enrolled in the Manchester fire Department
27 Aug 1881 his South Africa medal was “sent to party”
1 Mar 1883 Dawson died of consumption
5 Mar 1883 he was buried in the Phillips Park Cemetery, Manchester

Many thanks POT ( Tom ) Crumpsall is a district in north east Manchester, i
have moved three times in my life and have never been more than three
miles from Crumpsall. your excellent detail will serve me well over the coming
months.. does the phrase " sent to party " mean that his sag was sent to his
known address?. such a sad end for Dawson, so little time in his effort to build
a new life post service. cheers xhosa ( Les )

Xhosa,

"Sent to party" does mean his medal was sent to whatever address the Navy had for him.  

Only three time?  I have moved over 20 times in my life, so far, including 2 years residing on Victory Road, Rainham, Essex in the mid-1950s.

Thanks POT. nah mate i tend to stick in one place, my other
moves were forced on me, one through marriage ( 41yrs )
the other through compulsory purchase. so you were briefly
an ' Essex boy ' in the 50's when the world was still in black
and white!.. i bet that was fun. xhosa
