      Minor changes to the Forum   12/12/17

      We have altered the structure of the Home Fronts and Uniforms, Arms, Insignia, Equipment & Medals boards. We have removed the sub-category headings and now each board is more visible and easier to find. We have also renamed "About this website" and "Using theTechnology" to make it clearer where to post questions about the GWF website. We have also put a link ot the forum Rules on the main menu at the top to make them easier to find - particularly the section regarding requesting look ups on subscription sites such as Ancestry. Finally, for those who visit Skindles, there is a pinned post there detailing some changes to it.   Regards The GWF Admin Team

HMS Naiad

HMS Naiad left England (I believe) about April, 1901.  If they went to South Africa, would the ship's company qualify for the Boer War Medal?

It would appear so, if this link is correct.  _  http://www.britishmedals.us/collections/DH/rn.html   However, 1901 is well outside the scope of this WW1 Forum. Mods will probably close this topic.

Hi Digger,

 

The answer to your question is yes.

 

Queen's South Africa Medal and South Africa 1901 Bar 117 bars were issued.  Cape Colony Bar 117 Bars were issued. Source British Battles and Medals Major L. L. Gordon.

Arthur
