Just acquired a South Africa Medal issued to Pte. William Mahoney # 127  with (1879) Clasp.

Along with the medal came a huge amount of research material about this particular recipient with one article provided from what I believe to be a book ???
On page #305  of  "The Lion and The Rose" under the heading - The Kings Own Regiment / Old Comrades Association it refers to Mr. William Mahoney as being a guest from the Chelsea Hospital at the 2nd annual gathering held at the "Inns of Court Hotel" Holborn. The page has also been marked by someone as being July 1913 ??

In a separate location, page # 127, under the heading "The Kings Own Veterans" he is mentioned once again and the page also marked "April 1912"

Does anyone know or have information about this particular book ??  "THE LION AND THE ROSE"
Is it dedicated solely to this regiment ??

The picture attached shows a period shot of the "Kings Own" Veterans.

Cheers

Also went to the Crimea with her husband (not related to the Evans standing in this picture)
After her husbands (Pte. Evan Evans) death and ceremony, with full military honours, she was given permission by the regiment and war office to wear his medals and may have been the only woman to do so having been granted permission.

Enjoy.......
