new to site and recently joined to see if anyone can help with the following medal research I am doing. I have a SA bar 1879 medal to a James Walker 1st Dragoon Guards. No number or rank on the medal so beleive it may have been renamed but not recently as has age.
Could this James Walker have still served in 1879 with the Regt ?
I have a note with the medal that says a Pte James Walker no: 852 was discharged at some time with the Regt, but not sure if this true.
Any help would be great.
Many thanks for help,
