Welcome Gordy,

He served in the Sudan in 1898 at Atbara and Khartoum. For this he received the Queen's Sudan Medal and a 2 clasp Khedive's Medal.

In the Boer War he received the clasps Johannesburg, Diamond Hill, Wittebergen and Cape Colony and the KSA with both clasps.

No service papers seems to have survived for him.

The picture needs to be less than 2000 px and below 500k.
