1879graves,

I checked the Medal Roll for the 91st Regiment and found two Privates with the name of Conway.  

The first was #1771 H. Conway who received the South Africa Medal with “1879” clasp.

The second was #1936 M. Conway who received the South Africa Medal without clasp.  I think it is safe to eliminate this man.

It would be possible that his handwriting was misread by someone at the newspaper and they put a “W” for his first initial instead of “H.”  The newspaper printed “C.L.A. Highlanders” for his regiment’s name instead of “P.L.A. Highlanders” (“Princess Louise’s Argyllshire” Highlanders.”)  The misreading theory is strictly a guess on my part.

The father, James Conway, was a former Color-Sergeant in the 91st.

Medal Roll also shows Sgt. McIntyre 91st as killed (see letter).

Hi POT

Now we have a 1771 Hugh Conway 91st, could be my man?
We also now have a father name of Daniel, could this be Sergeant Instructor Conway?

Hi Steve
I Can not find a Sgt. Mcintyre KIA

Here he is. The roll says "dead". Maybe not on the KIA list because he died of wounds a little later.

Hi Steve

Great many thanks for the information, so KIA (even if of wounds a little later) agree

Thanks to POT

POT has found Sergeant-Instructor Conway first name to be James.
We now know that Hugh Conway could not be the letter writer as his Fathers name was Daniel.
