Sutlej Medal, reverse Moodkee 1845, two bars Ferozeshuhur and Sobraon to JAMES KEAMES, 9th REGT. 814 James Keames on 9th Regiment of Foot (Norfolk Regt.) Medal Roll, 814 James Kearnes/Kearns has two sets of papers in the N.A. born Moone, Ballitore, Kildare, Ireland, attested 8.1.1831 paid a £3 bounty, served Mauritius 2 years, East Indies 8 years. Papers confirm his Sutlej Medal reverse Moodkee & the two bars on his medal as confirmed on the medal roll & a L.S.G.C. as he served 22 years, but I wonder how he qualified with detail from his papers 1831-1843 (only 10 years to go before discharge) of Deserted 14.5.1831, rejoined & pardoned; drunk in Barracks; improper conduct in town; drunk; drunk & riotous; riotous; breaking out of the guard room; taking 2 shirts from a native without paying the proper value for them; drunk & noisy in Barracks. Not a good basis for a L.S.G.C. however on W.O. 102 the L.S.G.C. Roll 1831-1901 he is listed as 814 Pte. J. KEARNS, 9th Regt. his C/O being allowed to nominate his L.S.G.C.’s to the Regt. he must have thought Kearns conduct in the last 10 years since his last misdemeanour warranted the award on 8.11.1852. Discharged 17.10.1853 age 43, intended place of residence – Bolton, Lancashire. 2nd set of papers (814 James Kearns) are his Attestation, Declaration, Articles of War, Record of Service (small précis), interestingly signs his name by giving “his mark” therefore unlikely to realise his medal was named Keames & not as his numbered  L.S.G.C. to Kearns. The First Sikh war was a hard fought one as the Sikh Army was well trained & well armed, leading to heavy casualties with the British Army, Kearns/Keames being lucky to survive. Copy Medal Roll (modern), Discharge Papers. The two medals may in the past have been parted as spelling of the surname different & no Regt. number on the Sutlej, however the surviving papers prove this is the same man. Nearly extremely fine

 

£750-850

Queens South Africa Medal, five clasps, Cape Colony, Relief of Ladysmith, Transvaal, Laing's Nek, South Africa 1901 (last bar loose) named to 635 Pte W. Haly, Rifle Brigade.

He served in the South African War between 28 10 1899 & discharged 24 4 1901 having been WOUNDED VAAL KRANTZ evening of 5-6 February 1900. during the Relief of Ladysmith The hill known as Vaal Krantz the Lancashire Brigade & Artillery having made a feint attack on the Brakfontein position earlier in the day, in Buller's Despatch he states the Durham L.I. supported by the 1st Rifle Brigade advanced on Vaal Krantz under a heavy fire from the hill, causing considerable loss, but the men would not be denied & the position was soon taken forcing the Johannesburg Commando led by Cmdt B.J. Viljoen from the hill; the troops entrenched there for the night, but during the night Boer guns were relocated & considerable reinforcements brought in. Throughout the next day the Boers kept Vaal Krantz under constant rifle & shell fire & assaulted the hill twice. Throughout 7 February, the 2nd infantry brigade was subjected to rifle & shell fire & in the evening Buller ordered Vaal Krantz to be abandoned - it was evacuated that night. The 1st Rifle Brigade lost 5 O/Rs K.I.A. & 5 Officers 76 men wounded. The ORIGINAL (copy with medal) Natal Field Force casualty Roll gives 26 casualties at this action & presumably Buller's Despatch number seems to include the 49 casualties at Potgieters Drift 5.2.1900. This roll also confirms the mistake with his number 835 instead of 635 (a typo) as on the medal. RARE surviving ORIGINAL soldiers account book & Discharge Certificate.

Kings South Africa Medal, two clasps, South Africa 1901 and South Africa 1902 to Capt. B.D.Macculloch, 16/Lcrs. (Bertram Douglas MacCulloch. His Queen's South Africa Medal and Africa General Service Medals have been sold in previous Dix Noonan Webb auctions. The following information is from the DNW auction description of his Africa General Service medal (Lot 284, September, 2014): "Bertram Douglas MacCulloch was born in March 1877 and appointed a 2nd Lieutenant in the 7th Dragoon Guards direct from the Royal Military College in February 1897. Exchanging into the 16th Lancers in the rank of Lieutenant in October 1899, he was advanced to Captain in December 1901. He served in the South African war and took part in the relief of Kimberley; operations in Orange Free State, February to May 1900, including operations at Paardeberg and actions at Poplar Grove, Karee Siding and Houtnek; in Orange River Colony, March 1901, and Cape Colony, July 1901 to May 1902 (Medal with three clasps, King’s Medal with two clasps) - Note: this officer’s Q.S.A. was sold in these rooms in April 2001. He subsequently gained an appointment in the South Nigeria Regiment and it was in this capacity that he joined the 1905-06 punitive expedition under Brevet Major J. M. Trenchard, Royal Scots Fusiliers and Captain G. T. Mair, Royal Field Artillery, an operation mounted in response to the particularly unpleasant murder of Dr. Stewart in the Oswerri District, an incident summarised by Richard Magor in his Africa General Service Medals, from which the following extracts have been taken: ‘This medical officer was new to Nigeria and was travelling alone through the bush on his bicycle and lost his way. Accounts vary as to what happened. Some say Stewart was murdered as he slept, others that he was captured, trussed up naked and carried alive from village to village with bits being cut off as ‘juju’ until finally he was decapitated and eaten. All however agree that his body was cut up into small pieces and distributed around for consumption as a fetish. All those who ate a piece of Dr. Stewart would henceforth be released from the white man’s domination and protected from any harm from a European ... There was severe fighting which did not really end until those responsible for Stewart’s murder were captured, summarily tried and hanged ... Dr. Stewart’s skull and bones, except for the hands and left leg, were eventually surrendered and sent to Calabar for burial.’ Trenchard and Mair received D.S.Os, while for his own part MacCulloch qualified for the relevant Medal & clasp and returned home on sick leave in August 1906. Two years later, after fracturing a leg in two places in a polo accident, he reverted to half-pay. Having then been placed on the Reserve of Officers, MacCulloch was recalled on the outbreak of hostilities in August 1914 and went out to France as a Captain in the 16th Lancers in early October 1914, official records confirming that he was hit in his previously injured leg by a shell splinter ‘or something’ at Bailleul on 1 November 1914. No doubt as a result, he was transferred to No. 22 Remount Squadron in March 1915, in the temporary rank of Major, and remained similarly employed until ordered home that July as a result of an altercation with a French cab driver at Marseilles, MacCulloch striking the latter with his whip - and apparently a Gendarme who arrived on the scene shortly afterwards. In July 1916, MacCulloch was embarked for East Africa for command of a Mounted Infantry unit, but owing to a shortage of horses, ended up as second-in-command of the 1st Battalion, 3rd King’s African Rifles, an unhappy appointment due to his old leg injury and, it would appear, some disagreements over patrol work. He once more returned home, where he would appear to have rejoined the 16th Lancers, and was eventually placed on the Retired List in the rank of Lieutenant-Colonel in the 1920s. He died in Brighton in February 1940."Sold with copies of medal roll pages for his QSA, KSA, Africa General Service medal, 1914 Star trio, 1897 Jubilee medal and previous lot details from the DNW website.

He is a terrible loss to the Battalion, and the men will miss him sadly. He was so thorough, so hard working and he has left a very noble record of duty done for his Country, and the Officers and Men of the Regiment share the grief of his family.” Colour Sergeant Morrow“Allow me to say from the Ranks how brave a man he was, always greatly devoted to his duty; no matter how heavily the shelling or what attack the Regiment was taking part in, you would always see him in the thick of it all attending to the wounded.” He was buried in the Brandhoek New Military Cemetery, Brandhoek, Ypres, Belgium and commemorated on the Wade Family Roll, Little Shelford Parish Church, Cambridgeshire; Manchester University War Memorial; St Mary’s Church War Memorial, Charlton Kings, Gloucestershire; the Cheltenham Borough War Memorial; the Cheltenham College Roll of Honour and also on his Parent’s grave.
