Hello David / Adrian
I have a Cape Police QSA medal group to 819 Pte E H Jenner with 5th SAMR trio.
I'd welcome a QSA medal roll copy please.
I have his WW1 papers and his SAP transfer letter dd. Nov 1916.
On the QSA, the 'Cape Police' name is followed by CTG, what does that mean?
Thank you for the assistance.
The CTG you mention indicates that he was part of the Cape Police Special Contingent. I have a few attestation papers to these guys and most seem to have only signed up for a 1 year period as apposed to the normal 3 years period. This seems to have been very common during the war years and I suspect they were used to bolster the ranks what with many men tied up in Kimberley and or Mafeking.
He also served in the Vryburg T.G and Dennison's Scouts.
Here is his page.
Part time researcher of the Cape Police and C.P.G Regiment.
