The 4th Dragoon Guards were not present as a unit in the Boer War but some men were attached to other units with the result that medals named to the 4th DG are rare.

Nic,

Your QSA to Tewson is interesting as he appears on the roll of the 3rd Dragoon Guards. The remarks say QSA (3) issued.

He is listed for CC, OFS and Tr but DoL is written twice, once crossed through.



I cannot recall the last time I saw non state or date clasps identified on the supplementary roll.

He was discussed in this thread: angloboerwar.com/forum/5-medals-and-awar...dragoon-guards#59454 in 2018

Unfortunately, there are no service papers for Private Tewson to use as a cross reference.
