tjp28blue Posted 9 November , 2013 Share Posted 9 November , 2013 Hello, Are there any KAR specialists who can help me. According to his Medal Card, Godwin Barrington-Kennett joined the East African Mounted Rifles as Private 500. At some point he had a meteoric rise when he was promoted to Temporary Lt and transferred to the Kings African Rifles (perhaps the 'Special List'). Theatre of War first entered is given as 4A ( but I don't know where/what this is) and the date is 15/1/15. Hence he was entitled to all three medals including the 1915 star. Grateful if anyone knows which ship he travelled on, in which campaigns he fought and what is the meaning of 'Special List'. He survived the war. Many thanks TJP Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
