Medals Before 1914

Queen's South Africa Medal: Pte G.H. Radley

Queen's South Africa MedalG.H.Radley

8 January 2012:


I have a silver tobacco tin presented to a relative of mine. With the help of some wonderful gentlemen on the Anglo-Boer War forum I have identified him as: Private George Henry Radley (from Gainsborough) who volunteered when he was 22 years old. The description on the box reads: "Presented to Pte. G H Radley Vol.A.S.Co. Lincolnshire Regiment by his Fellow Townsmen of Gainsborough, Lincolnshire". On the medal rolls for the 2nd Lincolnshire Regiment, 6662 Pte G Radley has entitlement to the clasps Cape Colony, Orange Free State and Transvaal. George Radley's father was James Radley (born 1851) and his mother, Elizabeth Ann (born 1852). He had four sisters: Louis (born 1875), Florence (born 1873), Caroline (born 1880) and Lilly (born 1881). George Radley was born in Gleadless, York but when he was 4, moved to Gainsborough, Lincolnshire.
