Hi All,

Just new to the forum and have also acquired a South African Medal with an 1879 Clasp. This medal was issued and was engraved as follows : Pte. R.Ambler 2nd. Battalion Royal Scots Fusiliers. There is also a number at the commencement of the engraving 22/3 or 2213 (Hard to confirm either way ) which I do not understand ? Can anyone assist me with this or provide further information about this recipient ? Thanks Paul

Hi Paul

Welcome to the forum.

Private 2313 R Ambler is listed on the Medal Roll with a 1879 clasp to his medal.

I have not been able to find his service record or anything else about him at the moment.

Hopefully further information will come to light.

Hi Paul

Sorry I did not answer your question.

The number you see on the Medal is his service number.

Hi All

After talking to Paul and checking the original roll of the 21st, I can confirm that his service number is 2213 and not 2313.
The only other information I have found is that his first name is Richard.

Hi Graves .
So it seems the Forsyth Roll is incorrect as it has Ambler at 2313 from memory ? . We know there are errors in the roll so it's good that one can be cleared up . Good to see you posting .
Cheers , 90th

PostSubject: Pt. R. Ambler's Thanks........   Pte. R.Ambler 2nd. Battalion Royal Scots Fusiliers. EmptyThu Mar 20, 2014 5:42 am

To all that replied, my "Sincere thanks".

I certainly appreciate the effort taken and responses to my post.

It was great news to establish that Pt. Richard Ambler's correct service number is 2213 and not as shown in the books I have at hand.

Again.........Thanks All :)
