Product Description

The South Africa Medal was a campaign medal awarded to British and Imperial troops who served in various conflicts in South Africa between 1877 and 1902. The medal features the reigning monarch's effigy on the obverse, and various bars on the reverse to denote the recipient's specific service.

 Private G. J. Franklin was awarded the South Africa Medal with bars for Cape Colony, Orange Free State, Transvaal, and Laings Nek.

These bars represent his service in the following conflicts:

  • Cape Colony: This bar was awarded for service in the Cape Colony during the Second Boer War (1899-1902), which saw British and colonial forces fighting against the Boer republics of the Orange Free State and the South African Republic (Transvaal).

  • Orange Free State: This bar was awarded for service in the Orange Free State during the Second Boer War.

  • Transvaal: This bar was awarded for service in the South African Republic (Transvaal) during the Second Boer War.

  • Laings Nek: This bar was awarded for service in the First Boer War (1880-1881), which saw the Boers fighting against British colonial forces.
