Mike,
When you say the bars are incorrect are you saying they are tailors copies?

Hi Frank.....

No the bars are correct but he is not entitled to them all.....

I have not researched him but I do not think that he can have both the Cape Colony and Natal clasps.....

Mike,
Okay, so assume he joined later on, I always think of the SALH as part of Col, the Earl of Dundanald's, mounted brigade with a certain Lieutenant Churchill riding up Spion Kop :woohoo: when everyone else was coming down!
