Thomas Golden was born in Co. Kilkenny. A Labourer by occupation and a member of the 4th Battalion Leinster Regiment (Militia), he attested for the Corps of Hussars at Maryborough on 24 September 1894, aged 19 years. With the 19th Hussars he served in the East Indies, February 1896-October 1899 and South Africa, October 1899-October 1902. Was awarded with the Queen’s medal with four clasps and the King’s medal with two. Served in the Army Reserve, November 1902-September 1906
I was under the impression that the only ILH DCM for Wagon Hill went to Corporal W Weir. A collector from Maritzburg showed this medal at one of the Durban meetings a year or two ago.
