A good group to a long serving Sergeant Major of the Rifle Corps who would have seen a great deal of action. Additionally a very scarce casualty to the Rifles for the battle of Tamaai. The following is from A Brief History of the Regiment. The 3rd Battalion, under Lieutenant-Colonel Cromer Ashburnham, remained in South Africa, and was quartered at Pietermaritzburg, when in January, 1881, the Boers, under Joubert, invaded Natal. Major-General Sir George Colley, the High Commissioner and Commander. In-Chief, having assembled at. A small force, which included the 3rd Battalion, advanced and attacked the Boers on the 28th in position at Laing’s Nek. Battalion in part covered the left flank, and in part formed a reserve to the assaulting column. The attack was repulsed with heavy loss, and the Battalion covered the retreat, but did not lose many men. On the 25th of January the 2nd Battalion arrived from. In a state of the highest efficiency after its successful experience in the Afghan War. It marched forthwith to join headquarters at. Where it remained until the armistice in March. 8th, 1881, The Boers, as a result of their victory at Laing’s Nek, made a desperate eriort to sever the communications between Coney’s force at Mount Prospect, and the advanced base at. The General accordingly took prompt steps to avert this catastrophe, and thus. It came about that on the 8th of February was fought on the. An action as glorious as any in the history of the 60th. Colley, with two 9-pounder R. Guns, thirty-eight men of the Mounted Infantry, and five companies of the 3rd Battalion, under Ashburnham, marched early on the 8th from Prospect upon Newcastle, crossed the Ingogo River, and, on ascending the heights beyond, was attacked from all sides shortly before noon. The British position was a plateau covered with short grass, rocks, and boulders; whereas the kloofs and slopes occupied by the Boers were also not only strewn with rocks, but overgrown with. Long grass, which being three and four feet high afforded excellent cover. The troops, though completely surrounded, maintained the fight for nearly seven hours, until at last, in the gloom of approaching night and a heavy thunderstorm, the fire ceased and the enemy sullenly withdrew. The Battalion had lost five out of thirteen officers, and 119 out of 295 other ranks; of I Company only one officer and thirteen men were left, but nowhere had the enemy gained ground. The survivors, without food or water, and with ammunition running short. But with courage and discipline still unshaken, then faced the last ordeal of that long day. Little could be done for the wounded, except to collect and leave them with the chaplain, the doctor, and a few other non-combatants; and then, in drenching rain and darkness only broken by flashes of lightning, the few remaining horses were hooked into the guns, and the little force moved silently across the veldt to the river, which was in flood, and had to be forded breast high. So slippery was the ground from the rain that the horses could not draw the guns ; this for the last few miles was done by the Riflemen. At 8.30 a. Prospect Camp was reached after a peculiarly strenuous test of the courage and endurance of the troops. “The conduct of all ranks throughout this trying day was admirable, ” wrote Sir George Colley in his despatch. The comparatively young soldiers of the 60th Rifles behaved with the steadiness and coolness of veterans. At all times perfectly in hand, they held or changed their ground as directed without hurry or confusion ; though under heavy fire, themselves fired steadily, husbanding their ammunition and at the end of the day, with sadly reduced numbers formed and moved off the ground with the most perfect steadiness and order; and, finally, after eighteen hours of continuous fatigue, readily and I cheerfully attached themselves to the guns, and I dragged them up the long hill from the Ingogo, when the horses were unable to do so. On the night of the 26th of February Sir George Colley decided to seize Majuba Hill by a night march Feb. A hazardous undertaking which was ably executed. The following day the Boers in three assaulting columns, covered by the rifle fire of their largely superior force. Carried the mountain with splendid gallantry, and completely defeated the small British force of 414 soldiers and sailors. Two companies of the 3rd Battalion were posted upon the lower spurs of the mountain, and with a third company sent out later with ammunition they covered. The retreat, but were only slightly engaged. The brave and accomplished Colley dauntless to the end died a soldier’s death upon the summit of the mountain, and deplorable indeed was the loss in officers and men of the force engaged. A peace insisted upon by the British Government brought this unhappy campaign to a close little to the satisfaction of the troops concerned. The 3rd Battalion, under Colonel Ashburnham, had been moved from. When the outbreak of hostilities in. Caused it to be despatched with the 38th Regiment to. On the 18th of July, shortly after the bombardment of. It landed while the city was still in flames, and formed part of the advanced force under Major-General Sir Archibald Alison. A portion of the Battalion took part with the Mounted Infantry, on the 22nd of July, in the first engagement of the campaign at Mallaha Junction, eight miles from. And again in the reconnaissance in force on. The 5th August near Ramleh. On August the 18th, upon the arrival of Sir Garnet Wolseley, it embarked for. And took part in the actions of Tel-el-Mahuta on the 25th, and Kassassin on the 9th of September, when the enemy, about 13,000 strong, was completely defeated. Ashburnham, which had been organised for the night. March of the 12th-13th September and the assault of the lines of Te-el-Kebir at daylight. The Brigade forming the support of the Highland Brigade closed up at the beginning of the battle as day began to dawn, and gave a timely assistance in the assault of the enemy’s lines. The Battalion in two lines pressed eagerly forward with its accustomed dash, and entered. The Egyptian works at about the centre of the position, where Major Cramer, second in Command, was wounded, and had his horse shot under him. After an ebb and flow of strenuous bayonet fighting the enemy gave way on all sides, and, suffering great losses, were. Broken and dispersed in headlong flight. Was captured, and the war ended, upon which the Battalion formed part of the army of occupation. In February, 1884, the Battalion, under Ashburnham, was ordered to Suakim, where it served in a Brigade under that distinguished Rifleman, Major- General Sir Redvers Buller, as part of General Sir Gerald Graham’s force. On the 29th of February it took part in the defeat of the Dervishes at El Teb, and on the 13th of March it was present at the critical battle of Tamai. The troops were in two squares, one under Sir Gerald Graham, commanding the force, the other under Buller. Graham’s square was broken, and in the confusion some of its men poured a volley into Buller’s, causing one face to run in. Sir Redvers at once rode outside the square, and, with great coolness, rallied his men. By restoring the formation he undoubtedly staved off a terrible disaster, for, had the square been really broken, nothing could have saved. This action ended the Campaign.

W ORLD WAR II UNITED STATES NAVY & MARINE CORPS HEROISM MEDAL, W/ FULL WRAP BROOCH. RE-RIBBONED DRAPE TESTED U. The Navy and Marine Corps Medal is the highest non-combat decoration awarded for heroism by the United States Department of the Navy to the members of the United States Navy and United States Marine Corps. The medal was established by an act of Congress on 7 August 1942. As the senior non-combat award for heroism, this award hinges on the actual level of personal “life threatening” risk experienced by the awardee. For heroic performance to rise to this level it must be clearly established that the act involved very specific life-threatening risk to the awardee. During the mid-20th century, the Navy and Marine Corps Medal has been awarded instead of the Silver or Gold Lifesaving Medal, for sea rescues involving risk to life. This is due primarily to the creation of a variety of additional military decorations that are often considered more prestigious than the Lifesaving Medal.
