Hong Kong Plague Medal (Private F. Mangham, S.L.I.);
QSA (3) Cape Colony, Paardeberg, Driefontein (3234 Pte F. Mangham, 2: Shrops: Lt Inft);
KSA (2) (3234 Pte F. Mangham. Shrops: L.I.);

The Hong Kong Plague medal in this group was not known to the market at the time of the publication of ‘The Whitewash Brigade’
by Platt, Jones & Platt and is not listed therein. 3434 Private F. Mangham is confirmed on the QSA and KSA Rolls with
entitlement as above, and another soldier, G. Mangham (perhaps his brother) is also listed.
