Gloucester Citizen - Thursday 08 March 1923
Born in Gloucester in 1844 baptised 2nd July 1844 mother Jane father Henry. In 1901 he was living at Gummerwell, Gloucester Road, Churchdown, Gloucester with is wife Clara J, four daughters and one son. Occupation retired Civil Servant.
In the above article it says he had a medal for the Zulu War which I am assuming is the SAGS medal.
Unless he joined a colonial unit the above seems to hint he was with the civil service duirng the war so a SAGS medal?
