Lord Chelmsford Said .Buller is ‘one of the finest soldiers of the century’, so modest and reticent –that it was difficult to say for what individual deed he had got the Victoria Cross as he had been doing acts worthy of it all along the line

Hi Tasker

90th is correct, they were with Rowlands reserve column.

Raised 1855 as Frontier Armed and Mounted Force (FA&MF), name changed to Cape Mounted Riflemen 1878.

There is a snippet about them on The South African Military History Society site.

Hope this helps.

Regards

Martin.

Thanks fellas. Just read that they won 3 VCs during the AZW, so they must have been in the thick of some of the action.

Hi Tasker224

I am willing to be corrected on this,

Do you mean - Moirosi's Mountain campaign in Basutoland.

Hi 90th

More than happy be to corrected -

Moirosi's Mountain campaign was during the Zulu War (but as a separate campaign) -

Sekukuni Campaign was after the Zulu War.

Hi Graves1879.
The Medal for the Sekukuni campaign was the same Medal as issued for the AZW , I think it took place on two ocassions
the first time it was abandoned and was launched by Rowlands column ? . Then he I think launched another campaign in
Nov ? . Morosi's mtn also had two campaigns I think one was in June 79 ? ( Failure ) Not sure of the other ? . As Tasker said they
the CMR were awarded 3 VC's during the zulu war so I was trying to differentiate between the campaigns . Hope this makes sense ?
:lol!: :lol!: :lol!: .
cheers 90th. Idea

This particular medal is to a soldier awarded the 1877-8-9 clasp, so it is not unlikely that he would have seen a lot of action in all these campaigns, alongside the 3 VC winners.
Makes it a very desirable medal to look after in one's collection imo.
