Good story Rory.

In which LG did that citation appear? I have found two LG entries for him 31-10-1902p6908 DCM and 17-01-1902p383 MID.

The KSA was sent in 1906 to his step-father, Mr Joliffe, in Pmbg.

I assume you sourced these medals in Natal?

Sterling or Stirling?
Where did you source the original recommendation?

I'll be happy with Sterling Henk.

I looked through my notes and the original recommendation came from Cam Simpson who described having it as a "stroke of luck"

Rory
