Referring to the above post - the medals to Lt. Phillip Francis Webb of the QRV. Webb served with the Border Horse as a Lieutenant from 22.3.1900 until 30.6.1901 subsequently joining the Queenstown Rifle Volunteers the next day, 1.7.1901.

There is also a P.F. Webb who served as a Lieutenant with the East Griqualand Mounted Rifles but I am still checking on whether or not this is the same man - I rather suspect so, but need to make sure.

Regards

Rory

I'm not a medal collector, so here's my contribution to the topic: a Mk III Martini Henry rifle made in 1883; originally issued to 15 R.D [any idea which unit this is?] and re-issued [probably in the 1890s] to the Queenstown Rifle Volunteers. 194 is the rack number. It also bears [on the receiver] the C^G stamp of the Cape Govt.

The past is not dead. In fact, it's not even past.
