Hi Mike,
Colin sold his collection a few years ago now when he was not in the best of heath and I have quite a few items from it, as you will know he is Rhodesian and had been collecting for many years.

Just thought I would add this on to this thread, hoping for some information.
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.
He was also entitled to the KSA
If anyone has any other information on Joseph I would be most grateful.




Thanks for looking

Paul,

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.
