First of all a I would like to say thankyou for accepting my request to join this group.
I am looking for information on a friends Great Great Uncle who was awarded the 1879 clasp South Africa medal.
His name was H Reed, number 29/838 and was part of the 58th Foot.

All/Any information would be gratefully received as the family has literally nothing.

Many thanks in advance.

Simon

Hello Rai. Thankyou so much for this information. I will get back in touch with the family and post their reply.

Seems he had quite a chequered time in the military. A lot of sickness too.
Would it be a fair assumption a lot of drinking and maybe sleeping around?

Interesting information. Once again thankyou so much.
