Hi Tom,

Yes they were.

What I think is more interesting about these medals to the 21st is that they went on to take part in the 1st Anglo-Boer War for which no campaign medals were awarded. A number of of the 21st were besieged at Potchefstroom which is an unheralded action, if he was there that would be great.

Have you searched for his service papers?

Regards

I have a South African General service Medal , 1879 Clasp from the 2 / 21 , I will look through his service record tomorrow ,
but as far as I remember it doesnt give any specifics as to where he served , ie Ulundi etc . The papers only state ' South Africa '
with the months / year .

Hello 90th

The dates he was in SA should be a good indicator. I have a group to a Royal Engineer that clearly states enagaged "against the Boers 1880,81. Present at the siege of Lydenburg"

Hi Swb.
I checked the service records of my individuals medal from the 2 / 21st , seems he was a bit of a lad !. Promoted to Lce Corp ,
then Corp , then in confinement awaiting trial june 1879 , tried reduced to Priv ( Drunk On Duty ) . This happens two more times
again in July 79 and again in Nov 80 . Records state he took part in the Zululand Campaign 79 , Sekukuni 79 , Transv War 80-81
Burma 85 - 87 .

Hello 90th

Tidy! A good example of the hidden history of SAGS medals to the 21st. Do you have his IGS for Burma?

I wonder where he was in 1880-81. Have you read a 'A Rain of Lead' about the siege of Potchefstroom?

One of the gaps in my collection is a SAGS & IGS (Burma 1885-89) for the 24th Ft and SWB.
