I picked up this rather interesting pair yesterday and thought I would share Cpl J.J. Smith with you.
I really like the engraving on the reverse of the Kimberley Star and as you will notice (just) it shows Kimberley "Buffs" The Buffs were a company made up entirely of members of the Kimberley Club, a wonderful establishment that I had the pleasure of staying at in 2019.
I have included a couple of photo's (poor quality as my camera skills are awful) of photo's etc in David's book " The Kimberley Siege and Account" which shows Cpl J.J Smith and one which clearly shows his Cpl stripes.
Now for the research..
