Adrian,

That is such a story behind an often overlooked CC clasp.

Many thanks for posting that for us to read.

Hello Adrian
Thank you so much, a very detailed and interesting posting now added to with his brothers career connection.
I would like to think that there is similar detailed information available about my grandfather’s career with the public works department in Pietermaritzburg either side of his packed service as a Natal Carbineer during the 1906 native rebellion
Thanks again
Clive

Hello Clive,

Many thanks.

Clive, generally there is always some information to be found both online and when digging through references in the Archives. I have no doubt that if you had the opportunity to get into the PMB Archives you will come out with many interesting snippets of info.
