Greetings everyone,

I was wondering if anybody knows which QSA bars field-marshal John French (a major-general at the time) was awarded for the Boer war?

I know he had 7 bars, where 3 of them were "Elandslaagte", "Relief of Kimberley" and "Driefontein".

And based on his merits in the war, I can guess that he probably had "Paardeberg", "Transvaal" and "Cape Colony" too... but it is only a guess...

Does anybody know?

Thanks,

Michael

The last would likely be "Orange Free State", as it and "Cape Colony" were the two commonest bars issued.
