imperial1,

I had a quick look at the South Africa Medal Roll, 1877-8-9 for Bakers Horse and could find no one named “Tamer.”  Do you have any further information on him?  Any additional information on him might provide a lead to his identity.  

Tom

Hi all

On the Medal Roll, there is a W. Turner listed, Baker's Horse.

Original Roll for Baker's Horse.

Now over to your own interpretation if it reads TURNER or TAMER.

Hello again, That is a photo of the medal in question. Is that the proper period engraving? and are there other photos of a Bakers Horse or Bakers light horse medal you know about in order to compare.
Regards

Hello, the medal definitely says TP r W. Tamer Bakers Horse. , with a vague number of 16? in front , the engraving style matches other frontier horse medals online. The list provided says TPr W. Turner but it is written out. Pau la thinks the list actually says TPr W. Tamer any thoughts? I think it may be the same person with some sort of admin misprint of the name. I have seen it happen in the service.
Thanks for the help

It wouldnt be the first time mistakes have been made on the listings. Recently there have been at least three non listed participants from iSandlwana identified and last year a Rorkes Drift defenders name was corrected and the man identified correctly.

Hello, Thanks for the reply. I do think this is the case. It even happened to me on my dog tags. I will do more research and try to locate were he is from.
By the way my family wants to know what nge ukuhlonishwa okukhulu kulabo amaqhawe anesibindi nhlangothi zombili means?

Again Thanks
