Welcome to the forum Kiwi Sapper.

Medals to the REs at Kimberley are very rare and much prized.

Kiwi Sapper,



The medal roll shows 3 officers and 51 men so your great uncle is more likely than not to be in this picture.

David,

Hi from Ireland, Believe it or not, I have an original of that group [your first] photo -but with no names. It is on a hard cardboard. I will be reverting to you from time to time as I am presently working on a book on my granduncle. I got your 'blue boo' on the siege and medal roll and it is fantastic. From that I see that my granduncle was part of the 'coronation contingent' in 1902. Seems he made a successful claim for the KSA even though he left South Africa in Jan 1902. I really appreciate your great work.
