A handsome and pleasing pair, very considerable service, from a private in the Militia to a Warrant Officer in the Heavy Branch of the Machine Gun Corps, I do hope his LSGC remains extant and you are able to find it in due course.

I have done no research but it is always great to get a pair that is still intact. He is mentioned in Dr David Biggins "Elandslaagte" so that will be my start in looking into this fellow.
