Samuel Boon...Medal Awards

Postby pete25 » Mon Nov 07, 2016 7:49 pm

Can someone please look this up for me on as I no longer have a subscription.

I think it might be for my 2x Great Grandfather Samuel Boon who was born in1836 and died 1875.
Samuel was in the 8th Hussars.

If anyone can help I would be most thankful for any images or info gained from this document.

Kind regards,

... the missing bit that isn't on the image, but a couple of frames further back:

No. 1 Company, 5th Battalion RA (Royal Artillery)

And no, I haven't flipped by referring to Company and Battalion in relation to the RA, that was what they were called at one time....
