Does anyone know if a record/source exists of individual participants in the battle? I am seeking information on my ancestor Trooper Archibald Mcneil, Border Horse and later Kimberley Horse, am trying to determine if he participated in this battle. I have his service medals, Queens South Africa Medal 1879 (service with Border Horse) and CGHGSM with bar for Basutoland (service with Kimberley Horse).

Unfortunately not much other than the units inscribed on the medals. He is my maternal Great-Grandfather He would have had a son Louis Stephen McNeil (my grandfather) and siblings James McNeil and Margaret McNeil. I know he is on the Cape Of Good Hope General Service Medal Roll which was compiled by a Martin Wagner from NorthEastMedals in the UK.

I actually believe I know SLIGHTLY more about his father.

Here are details of his father:

Also Archibald McNeil born 1834 Glasgow Scotland died 9th July 1895 at Kimberley.

Thanks for your reply and interest
regards

Hi, this may help and I suspect that these are the people you are after. The Captain McNeil I'm currently researching myself and would love to know more about him. I suspect he is the father of your Border Horse man. Note those are entries from my database.
