Seen this week : QSA + CC,, Wepener , Tvl, Wittebergen + KSA 2 clasps : both to " 3326 Pte C.H.T. Liedtke Cape M.R .
Third initial is T on QSA and F on KSA
Also : Cape GSM + Bechuanaland to :Cpl H.T. Liedtke Cape Pol.
Initials on Cape GSM differ to Boer War Medals but the owner also had a ribbon bar with CGSM, QSA and KSA on it
Could all be to the same man ?
Any verification ( eg of Wepener clasp and CGSM ) and other info would be most welcome
3326 Private Carl Henry Theodore, Cape Mounted Rifles
QSA (4) CC Wep Tr Witt; KSA (2)
Enlistment page damaged. Discharged 31 May 1903. CMR ref DD7/64
QSA and KSA ref: 241p40, 359p303
There is a man of this name on the CGHGSM roll (1) Bechuanaland, earned with the Cape Police (395 L/Cpl) so very probably the same man. It is a great shame his CMR papers are damaged but perhaps there are extant Cape Police papers that will confirm.
