South African Campaign & Natal Rebellion 1906

Postby patmblack » Fri Sep 06, 2013 12:50 pm

My grand uncle, James Hendry Galt/Gatt died 23 February 1919 & is buried in New Godalming Cemetery, Surrey. He was a Lieutenant in 4th Bn. Canadian Infantry having emigrated from Scotland in 1913. On his Commonwealth War Grave Commission notification it states that he served in the South African Campaign & Natal Rebellion 1906 (name was probably Gatt at this time). Can anyone help with where I can find out any info on this campaign because the only African campaigns I have found relate to 1902.

There is some information here about the Natal Rebellion :

The information includes a list of recipients of the campaign medal - there is a Galt , but unfortunately initials are H V.

Their Forum may be able to help you further.

Suggest that you also post your query on the Victorian Wars Forum http://www.victorianwars.com/index.php which includes a section on "The Edwardian & Immediate Pre-First World War Period 1901-14" . I notice that there are a couple of past queries relating to the "1906 Zulu rebellion". You will need to register on this forum before posting, but there are some very knowledgeable people there about all matters military.
