Newcastle is located in northern Natal, not far from Dundee.
A Town Guard was raised after the initial invasion of the Natal by the Boers. The QSA medal roll in WO100/284 says 243 medals were issued to the unit. The actual roll list slighytly more than this. All the QSAs were issued without clasp.
Quite a few QSAs were returned to Woolwich on 16 Feb 1914 making the QSAs awarded to the Newcastle TG around 172.
