t's a very good question. As a Grenadier (even having served in the remainder company of old 3rd Battalion, now named the Inkerman Company) I should really know about 'Modder'! I will have fun following this up with RHQ.
With the Covid restrictions easing last week, I visited my local antiques and collectible centre to have a mooch about. Not a great deal of Anglo Boer War items for sale. However, there was a box of military postcards which looked interesting. I started to have a look through them, mostly WW1 photographs and a few embroidered cards to loved ones and at the back in a brown envelope I found 4 hand tinted postcards. Not a bad price a few quid each, and look who turned up? Modder the Grenadier Guards dog.
Now judging by this posts age, I imagine the medal bar configuration was never solved? So, I think Private Modder the farm collie who served with the 3rd Battalion Grenadier Guards is entitled to the classic GG combination pair. QSA- Belfast, Diamond Hill, Johannesburg, Driefontein, Modder River & Belmont & KSA. Any other suggestions would be most welcome.
You only live once, but if you do it right, once is enough.
