I have a number of medals to men of the Highland Light Infantry who fought in South Africa in 1899-1902, and have one or more medals to all the following men, and am looking for their QSA and/or KSA to re-unite their full entitlement - grateful for details of any of these, or indeed any HLI medals you hold, as I record all those I have seen, and in most cases can offer some information on the man even if only to confirm medal entitlement etc.
With thanks in advance
Tom

Mike,
thanks for such a prompt reply. Details I have on your men are as follows (taken from medal rolls and HLI Chronicles) - 10/1895 means HLI Chronicle of October 1895 and covered the period approx May/June to August/September 1895.
Hope of some help (if only to confirm stuff)
Tom
