I inherited a number of years ago an 1879 clasped 'South African medal from a distant relative. Interestingly, I have also got 2 pictures of him within his unit. I am currently serving In the forces and have it with my own medals.

All I know is that he is a Gnr W Luckman 4747 of 5th Bde RA.

Out of pure interest I would like to know if anyone has any details or information of him and his actions during this period.

Not on the roll of N/5 at the time of Isandhlwana. Must have arrived later to bring the battery up to strength (hence the 1879 clasp and not 1877-8-9).

What alot of information and thanks for the time that you have all spent on this.
The plot thickens. The 2 x photos that I inherited with the medal are of the time but for LBdr in the first one and Sgts in the second one. They seem like  the same cohort.

Great pictures.
I'm no uniform expert but they do look a bit late though for a man who left the army in 1889.
I would have thought they would have been wearing the home service helmet with ball fixing if the pictures were taken before 1902. I thought the peaked cap was only adopted c1905.
I'm sure some one on here will correct me though if I am wrong.
Also its difficult to see but are some of them wearing Anglo Boer war medals?

I see on the third picture above it says 'grandfather.'
I wonder if the great grandfather was issued the SA medal and his son followed him into the battery and is shown in the postcards above.

That would seem more likely. But then it also depends on who wrote grandfather? 1879Luckman's father or grandfather??
