Another one bites the dust (2 left out of 26 clasps total wink.gif).

A pair awarded to 4388 PTE J. OLIVER, GORDON HIGHLANDERS. He served inboth India and South Africa. Came over to the South Africa campaignshortly before the shooting started and participated in the firstbattles in Natal (Elandslaagte and Defense of Ladysmith).

He was also entitled to the KSA (but not in this group).
