Can anyone help identify an individual to a WWI South African NCO

Recommended Posts

Hello,

I am trying to to help identify an individual from 3D SAI, 1st South African Brigade, 9th (Scottish) Division

Was a Sergeant, wounded once, Was a Signal and musketry instructor.
 

Awards: Ribbon bar - Military Medal, Queens South Africa Medal, Natal Native Rebellion Medal, WWI 1914-1915 Medal

I think it may be, but not for sure.  

Possible - Second Boer War Geoffrey Watkin Williams In Kimberly Volunteer Regiment

I can’t find a name on any roster for the Natal Medal.

Wwi - Geoffrey Watkin WILLIAMS

3rd SAI, C Coy for Recommended for the DCM for his conduct at Delville Wood, awarded Military Medal. On the 20th July, he commanded a strong point in Princes Street and showed a great determination and coolness in handling his men under fire.

Any help would be appreciated.

thanks

Rhino Research is your best bet for SA stuff.    Sadly, the original owner, Audrey, passed away in March but I understand that her daughter is planning on carrying on.  Good luck.

Audrey has done research for years.  I say 'owner' because this is her site - rhino.research@icon.co.za

However, as I say, apparently he daughter is now carrying on with SA research.
