Awarded Medal with clasp according to the Forsyth Medal Roll .
Here is a summary from Mackinnon & Shadbolt describing M Battery , 6th Brigade's Roll in the war
Major Sandham's battery arrived at Durban from England on the 22nd March 1879 . For about a month it was encamped at Cato's manor , during which time the Prince Imperial was attached to it . On the 26th April it joined Crealock's Divis at Fort Tenedos , where it was encamped till the 19th June ; it then proceeded with the Divis , in its advance , taking part in the various expeditions , and assisting in the opening of Port Durnford , and in the burning of the Ondine Kraal . On the 17th Aug a portion of the battery , consisting of Mounted Non - com , Officers and men under Lt Thompson , took part in Capt Yeatman - Biggs' expedition in search of the king . It proceeded up the coast as far as St.Lucia Bay , which it crossed . Gleaning no tidings of the object of its pursuit , it made its way to Ulundi , which it reached on the 29th . It would appear that had the coast not been thus patrolled , the King would have made for the thick Forests in the neighbourhood of St Lucia , as he had , in fact , proceeded a considerable distance down the Umvolosi when he heard of the appraoch of the party . The battery , subsequently , on the return of the forces to Natal , made its way back to Durban , where it arrived on the 14th September .

I have William Bibby's South Africa Medal with clasp in my late father's collection along with several other SAMs (57th Foot, 1st Cape Yeomanry, 2/4th Foot and C Troop RE). Does anyone have any more about this old soldier and in the war?
