Trooper R. F. de Beer was a member of the "Wodehouse True Blues", one of the many colonial units formed during the Cape Frontier Wars and Zulu War. "The Wodehouse True Blues" took part in the action at Perie Bush in 1878 were they lost several men killed in action. They also were present at the attack on Morosi's Stronghold 8 April 1879. A little over 50 medals were issued. mostly for 1877-78 and 1878. Only a handful of 1878-9 clasps issued.

Trooper R. F. de Beer received the South Africa Medal with clasp "1878", and is confirmed on the medal roll.

Wink hi interestingly this name cropped up just as i was doing a spot of research on a medal prior to listing on a internet auction site. i purchased from sth africa.the medal bears the name tpr  r.  fdebeer, wodehouse true blues.i suspect a full stop is absent after the f. as debeer is a common afrikaan name.as in the diamond dealers.so confirming the medal exists & is now in the uk with the 1879 clasp
