Our good friends at FindMyPast have just added some Boer War records to their military collection. This time round they are all medal rolls which are useful genealogy records. The additions are
Queen’s South Africa medal rolls for: Royal Monmouthshire Royal Engineers (Militia), Ceylon Planters Rifle Corps, Maritzburg Ambulance Corps, Natal Field Artillery and Natal Volunteer Hotchkiss Gun Detachment
King’s South Africa rolls for: 9th Lancers, 12th Lancers, 10th Hussars, 11th Hussars and Imperial Yeomanry
Talana clasp for 1st Battalion Royal Irish Fusiliers, Leicestershire Regiment and King’s Royal Rifle Corps
Also they have completed the Wepener clasp roll
We have Meurig Jones to thank for allowing FindMyPast to offer these records to subscribers.
