Queen’s South Africa, no clasp – simply named to G.R. F. Nicholls.
He is just about on a roll of his own – showing service with Army Stationery Department at Pietermartizburg.
A very rare designation/unit.
Medal about GVF.
Initial research shows that Nicholls served in the Civil Service and Post Office before the Boer War.
In 1903, he is recorded as travelling to Durban.
WITH : a renamed Natal 1906 with dated clasp, named to him in running script as Qtrmaster and Lieut. in the Natal Field Artillery. This is correct on the roll.
Note – the Natal has some severe knocks and cuts and F only.
