I know nothing about this man, but to be involved in the Relief of Ladysmith, then miss Tugela Heights and go across to Paardeberg is a pretty remarkable sequence.
The past is not dead. In fact, it's not even past.

Hi Mike

I couldn't match a 7051 to a E G or C White...... However I did find a 7051 to a Private Lee
QSA 3 bars. 1st Battalion Rifle Brigade.



As Rob has mentioned regarding the dubious clasp arrangement....I also think it is a nay.

Dave.......
You only live once, but if you do it right, once is enough.
Best regards,
Dave
