LMC said they had used information that accompanied the medal.


Well done, and good on LMC for listening.

Not entitled to any Medal. They were only called out for four days viz 10th to 13th November 1901

Not included in the original list of Town Guards 68/SA/6349

Some 84 medals were issued to the Stellenbosch DMT.

Hi David, yes, I've just checked my records - I'd never seen that before. Do you think that's why there was I high no. of returns?

I would have said that even if they were only active for 4 days they'd be entitled to something.

The roll for the Modder River DMT lists just 3 names and 2 of these medals were returned. Has anyone come across the QSA to Trooper C F J Kotze?
