QSA with five clasps: Relief of Kimberley, Paardeberg, Driefontein, Johannesburg and Diamond Hill

Named to: 2952 Pte. A. Messenger, 6th Dragoon Guards

Taken prisoner near Phillippolis along with Pte. S. Howe. Captured on 22.10.1900; released later. Entitled to KSA with two clasps.

It is believed that a son of Arthur Messenger (as above), named after his father and also serving in the 6th Dragoon Guards, was killed in action in France on 1 April 1918, aged 20 years. He was buried in the Serre Road Cemetery. His mother, Frances Messenger, was living at 8 Olga Street, Roman Road, Bow in East London at the time.

Photographs forthcoming.
