LSGC medal


Coldstreamer

Recommended Posts

Hello

Just looking at the (sparse) award of the LSGC to the Coldstream Gds and its seems 1917 was a bumber year for the award.

Does war service count extra ? I didnt think it did but a friend thought it might. It was 18 years after the Boer war which might explain some of it - 1915 only had 3 awards and 1917 had nearly 40 or so.

Cheers all

Ian

And why am i now an old sweat over night ?? :lol:

War Service only counted Double for Territorial Troops, Regulars [eg: Your Guards] had to do the Time!,I suspect your theory Re the South African War is more likely ,a lot of Old Sweats had just about completed their years by WW1 & got it in the intervening War Years.

Congrats on becoming an Overnight "Sweat" must be he Cambridgeshire Climate..........all those Hills :blink::D

Hello

I thought as much - my friend has a lot of territorial medals and that would explain the confusion
