I have a certificate issued to Sergeant Fred Hallam for long service award for the period 4 April 1896 to 31 March 1908 with information on his campaigns and medals which include 1901 - 1902 South Africa in Transvaal, Cape Colony and Orange Free State. The certificate has no regimental number and I cannot find any record of any F Hallam's in your database.
Can you please direct me so i can try and identify which medals he is entitled and also did he enlist in WW1
There is a F L Hallam 4th Squadron 1st Battalion Imperial Yeomanry Regimental number 21600
Corporal, entitled to 3 clasps Cape Colony, Orange Free State and Transvaal... Invalided home 1902 enteric fever. 2 date clasps also awarded
Was he a Shropshire / West Midlands lad by any chance.?....if not, this is probably not your man. There are papers available on Ancestry . Also a few FL Hallams mentioned in the Great War, although different regiments which is not unusual...worth a look. There may be something that might be helpful.
You only live once, but if you do it right, once is enough.
