13th Hussars


Recommended Posts

Does anyone know about the 13th Hussars actions during the Boer war, or where i could find this information?

I'm also looking for information on a specific member, Saddler Sergeant Swatton. (Written on medal rim as: 3025 Saddler Sergeant Wm Swatton 13 Hussars)

Cheers!

Sam.

Hi,

There is a books which should help! It is:

XIII Hussars. South African War, October 1899 - October 1902. Published at Aldershot by May & Co., printers [1902]

You might have to get your local library to try and get a copy of it for you.

Regards

Arthur
