Hi Everyone

I am new to the site. Hopefully someone may be able to help me with researching my ancestors. I have a great uncle Joseph Fowler who served with the Royal Field Artillery in WW1, he was Corporal Joseph Fowler 31872 he was killed 2nd March 1916. I would like to be able to get his medal card. Also he had been in the army for 18 years, so I think he will have been in the boer war I would love any information on this also his medal card, as his obituary after he was killed in WW1 says he received a medal and three bars in the South Africa Campaign.

Also a great uncle Bombadier William Robinson Royal Garrison artillery was killed in WW1, I have his info and medal card for WW1. I would like to know if he served in the boer war.

Also Private George Robinson 6470 Manchester regiment he was killed inWW1 I have his info and medal card for WW1. I would like to know if he fought in the boer war.

thanks

Catherine

Hello Catherine

My Grandfather Thomas Robinson born 1875 is the eldest Brother of George and William he served in the Boer War and survived WW1, he died in 1954. Maybe we could swap information, it also looks like we are related.

Regards

Duncan
