PostSubject: MY GRANDFATHER GEORGE BAILEYS' MEDAL.   Mon Jun 18, 2018 5:49 pm

My great grandfather George Bailey, 1/13th regiment of Prince Alberts Light Infantry served during the Sekhukhune Campaign of 1878 and Anglo-Zulu was of 1879, his serial no. was 187 - 36/60, rank, private, his medals were 1878/1879 clasp, WO 12 & 16, (documents) I believe the clasp would have been placed on the medal ribbon of the South Africa medal, 1879.
I would be really interested to have any comments on these medals or any documents relating to George Bailey.

BAILEYP,

No sure what you are actually seeking with your question.

If I can clarify something for you though, your Great-Grandfather’s number. It should read Private 36th Brigade No.60, normally shown as 36B/60.

I can recommend a book for you, A Brief History of the 13th Regiment (P.A.L.I.) in South Africa during the Transvaal and Zulu Difficulties, 1877-8-9. unusually it is written by Private Edward D. McToy, of 1st/13th.

The documents that you mention are available for examination at The National Archives at Kew. The references War Office 12 & 16 relate to the Pay & Muster Rolls.
