In the Boer War the natives didn't get medals.

In 1906, there were medals to natives, I have seen them to the police, to some troops and stretcher bearers.

But I am sure that there were a lot more natives involved that we see medals.

Does anyone have evidence of natives NOT getting a medal? I'm about to search to see if I can find original rolls on ancestry or TNA to see if there are comments on there.

Cheers
Ryan

Ryan,

I have little to help you but very interested to hear about the rolls and their contents.

Here is a list of native recipients: www.angloboerwar.com/medals-and-awards/n...n-1906-medal?start=2
