Lord Chelmsford Said .Buller is ‘one of the finest soldiers of the century’, so modest and reticent –that it was difficult to say for what individual deed he had got the Victoria Cross as he had been doing acts worthy of it all along the line

Hello,

I am researching a medal that has been in my family for some time.

Its a South Africa Medal with 1877-8-9 band on it.

Inscription on the side:

1218 PTE D Thomas 2/24th Foot

I would like to know where I could find more information about this medal and D Thomas?

Thanks,

Greg

You have one valuable Medal there . The Effects Of Private David Thomas 25B/ 1218 2 / 24th were Claimed by his Father . As Frank has said he was in G Co , this company was commanded by Lt Charles d'Aguilar Pope and was the last British company on the right of the firing line .

They have become quite difficult to value at times , but a normal KIA at Isandlwana is anything between 7,800 - 8,500 GBP's , that's not knowing which company they were in , this medal , with Thomas stated as being in G Co , 2 / 24th , which is another bonus , as he's with Pope's Co ( if he was in G Co on the day ? ) , I'd certainly think upward of over 9K . Shocked
