researching ancestors in boer war and ww1

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.
