His attestation papers for the BMI are in WO126 and he is on the nominal roll for the 2nd ILH as 119 Trp.

Excellent picture of his QSA.

Here is a BMI QSA from my collection. Apart from confirmation of the clasps, I have no other information about the man and his medal.

Paul,
A bit of a let down really, checked the BMI in WO126/2 and nothing found, however the Imperial Light Horse was a differant story, will be in touch!

1384 Trooper Joseph Hanly Bethunes Mounted Infantry
Also served with the Imperial Light Horse the 1st City (Grahanstown) Volunteers and City of London Imperial Volunteers.

If anyone has any other information on Joseph I would be most grateful.




Thanks for looking
