He is certainly a most interesting recipient, upon looking at WO100/77, I note on page 105 of the main volume for the 1896 medal and clasps, an address in Bechuanaland is shown, in respect of his service in the Matabeleland Relief Force.

Many thanks
Featherstonehaugh's story is coming together. I have asked Adrian to see what he can find in the archives in Cape Town.
Regards
Mike

It will be interesting to see if there is a Vryburg connection, I look forward to any future updates.

The only thing that the vendor could tell me was that his maternal grandfather ( William Brooks Featherstonehaugh) was a butcher in Vryburg.

Okay, that is certainly interesting, I wonder how much time he spent there, perhaps very little, but, I would think he too actually resided there at some point.
