Hi, found this thread while doing some genealogy research, I believe that 3420 3rd CLASS TROOPER HAROLD FALTENHINE was my great grandfather.

I'd known for many years that a Faltenhine had been in the Boer war but it just clicked recently exactly who he was.

He was born in 1883 and lived in Nova Scotia.

GALLANTRY BADGE – 19 TROOP
(L. to R.)

2102 3rd CLASS TROOPER CHARLES WILLIAM RYALL

No gallantry listed for Trooper Ryall, but in late 1901 was Court Martial for disobeying a direct order and reduced from the rank of Corporal to Trooper.

2072 1st CLASS TROOPER WILLIE HERBERT GIBBONS

3420 3rd CLASS TROOPER HAROLD FALTENHINE

Severely wounded covering the withdrawal at Bessiespan August 11th, 1901 where he remained behind with Trooper Young so the balance of the troop lead by Trooper Gibbons could escape. Later discharged as medically unfit. Forced to pay his own way home as British government refused to pay but later sued the British and won.

2090 1st CLASS TROOPER RICHARD DOUGLAS MUIR

Slightly wounded while successfully rescuing a fellow Trooper at Rietport, October 10th, 1901.

2120 3rd CLASS TROOPER CLAUDE LESLIE YOUNG
