Rory,

There is something written after the 1899 at the right of the nominal roll but that part of the page is missing.

There was a man of this name linked to Kitchener's Horse. He could not be found, was not on the medal roll and there is no attestation paper for him.

Same number too.

Yes, DFH is the Diamond Fields Horse.

Thank you David - I had seen that entry but, not knowing the significance of those codes in the columns to the left, I disregarded it.

Service, albeit with KH for only a few months, would explain his OFS clasp.

Regards

Rory
