Queen's South Africa Medal

Postby Grant M Hicks » Sat Nov 17, 2007 12:39 pm

Dear Forum
I have been researching my Great Grandfathers military record, 4089 Private James Hicks, who served in the Boer War (2nd) and was awarded the Queen's South Africa Medal with bars Cape Colony & Orange Free State.

However because prior to this last month I had no Idea that he had been awarded the medal, so how do I find out what has become of it? as you might imagine I would love to find it :?:

Hi there Grant, Scully and fellow members.

The website ERROR://medalsgonemissing.com will be up and running very shortly.

I apologise for the delay - but we are conducting a very extensive testing period to ensure that all is in order.....to maximise the possibilities of having a successful hit.

You would be amazed at how many medals, issued to British recipients have ended up over here in Australia. But as our website is an INTERNATIONAL website, it will not matter where the medals are throughout the world. If the medals are out there, our site will help find them and re-unite you with your family heritage.

Grant, if you wish to contact me on my email - I will ensure that your medals are listed FREE OF CHARGE!!!!!!

There is an introductory period, where researchers will be able to list for free for a short period of time, but if you send me the details - I will personally ensure that they are listed immediately.

Good luck to you and I will do my utmost to help you out.

Kind regards

Gary Traynor
