Hi all,
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,
Alan

Alan,

Welcome to the forum!

The Medal Roll for the 1st Dragoon Guards has a Private James Walker #862 entitled to South Africa Medal with clasp “1879” for service in the Zulu War. There is a notation on the roll that reads “discharged to England”.

Do you have photos of the medal that you could post on the forum? A photo of the engraving on the edge would be nice.

I am sure some other member who is more knowledgeable regarding the 1st Dragoon Guards, will be able to post more information.


Petty Officer Tom

Welcome to the forum.

If you could post a pic or two of the naming, might be able to tell if it has been renamed.

Hi all thanks for replies. I unfortunately have no camera at the moment, but do believe this medal is renamed. I am presuming that the medal was renamed by a jewellers on the instruction of James Walker by himself. Perhaps to replace a lost original ?
