Thank you for your comments.
That is a good point about the LS & GC medal nothing stated on his service history.

Thank you for showing an interesting QSA with an unusual rank. Like Frank, I enjoy anything to do with the Natal campaign, but especially the Ladysmith relief operations. I wonder what part your man took in the Battle of Colenso. Also, was he awarded a LS & GC medal?
