Lt. Melvill: Well done, Sir! Did you see that Noggs? Deceived him with the up and took him with the down. Norris-Newman: Well well, this one's a grandfather at least. If he'd been a Zulu in his prime I'd have given odds against your lancer, Mr.Melvill.

Hello,

I am researching a medal that has been in my family for some time.

Its a South Africa Medal with 1877-8-9 band on it.

Inscription on the side:

1218 PTE D Thomas 2/24th Foot

I would like to know where I could find more information about this medal and D Thomas?

Thanks,

Greg

You have one valuable Medal there . The Effects Of Private David Thomas 25B/ 1218 2 / 24th were Claimed by his Father . As Frank has said he was in G Co , this company was commanded by Lt Charles d'Aguilar Pope and was the last British company on the right of the firing line .

They have become quite difficult to value at times , but a normal KIA at Isandlwana is anything between 7,800 - 8,500 GBP's , that's not knowing which company they were in , this medal , with Thomas stated as being in G Co , 2 / 24th , which is another bonus , as he's with Pope's Co ( if he was in G Co on the day ? ) , I'd certainly think upward of over 9K . Shocked
