Long Service and Good Conduct medal

Recommended Posts

Hi,

I picked up today a Long Service and Good Conduct medal (Edward VII issue) what was awarded to seargeant J.Dunne.

I would like to find out more about his service but don't know from where to start.

If someone, who have QSA roles, can be so kind and check does his name is in his role?

Full naming on the medal: 1088 SJT : J.DUNNE. RL.DUBLIN FUS.

Regards,

Timo aka Noor

Hi Timo,

Mr. Dunne was entitled to the :

QSA - Clasps - Cape Colony / Orange Free State / Transvaal

KSA - Clasps - South Africa 1901 and South Africa 1902

It simply states "invalided 20.02.01" on the QSA roll.

Not sure how he became entitled to the KSA medal with 1902 clasp, unless he returned later from injuries? Didn't say he was sent home....

If you want a copy of these two rolls just PM me your email address :beer:

Thanks Darrell.

Great info! I presume that the pre WW1 service papers, etc are gone forewer as well and there is not much what I can dig out about him - checked ancestry, london gazette and royal dublin fusiliers pages - nothing.

No service during WW1 so no MIC, etc.

Regards,

Timo

Soldiers Docs (WO97 series) covering service upto 1913 are available on Findmypast,com so a check their might be worthwhile. Unfortunately you may need to buy some "credits" or perhaps they have a free introductory period - worth a look.
