Hi Littlehand .
I see you state South Africa War Medal 77- 79 , bar 77-78 which tells us he either wasnt involved in the zulu war or possibly didnt cross the border . On further checking with the Medal Roll he is listed under , Army Service Corp ; Transport . 3rd Class Staff Sergeant . The Medal Roll does indeed have him down for the 77-78 Clasp only .
PS. Does a 3rd class staff sgt exist today in the British Army and if so what is his roll ????.
