Dave F wrote: I did find 2 entries for Micheal Regan who both died in South Africa in 1903 and 1913. I cannot access the records as they are in the N A of Pretoria. The ref numbers are 3571 and 40135.

FWIW, the death notices of these two Michael Reagans are available on Family Search.
The first (ref 3571) was born in Launceston, Tasmania, in 1861 or 62, and died in Johannesburg in 1903. His occupation was given as "mason".
The second (ref 40135) was born in Ireland in 1857, and died in Pretoria in 1919. His occupation was "secretary to association".

Spink did not cover themselves in glory with this listing

Described as: 'Queen's South Africa 1899-1902, 3 clasps, Relief of Ladysmith, Paardeberg, Driefontein (3101 Tpr: F. Korch. Kitchener's Horse); King's South Africa 1901-02, 2 clasps, South Africa 1901, South Africa 1902 (804 Corpl: F. Korck. C. T. Highrs:); Mayor of Kimberley’s Star 1899-1900, unnamed as issued, reverse hallmark with date letter ‘a’, note surname spelling on first, last with ring suspension, very fine (3). Frederick Korck transferred to the Cape Town Highlanders after having served in Kitchener's Horse.'

He earned Relief of Kimberley, not the Relief of Ladysmith.

He did not earn the Kimberley Star.
