The brigade having been broken up, this battalion was, along with the West Riding Regiment (which see), put under Major General Paget, and did good work in the districts north-east and north-west of Pretoria. In Lord Roberts’ final despatch 13 officers and 23 non-commissioned officers and men were mentioned. In his despatch of 8th March 1901 Lord Kitchener says, para 9, that in consequence of De Wet’s effort to get into Cape Colony he brought the troops under Generals Paget and Plumer from the Transvaal to Naauwpoort, Cape Colony, in February 1901. The Wiltshires had some skirmishing about Richmond and other places, and some hard marching in February and the beginning of March. In April 1901 the battalion was, along with the 2nd Northamptonshire Regiment, on the Pretoria-Pietersburg line. Early in May the battalion provided four companies as the infantry of a column under Lieutenant Colonel Greenfell, which did very successful work in the Northern Transvaal. One officer and 3 non-commissioned officers and men were mentioned in despatches by Lord Kitchener during the campaign, and in his final despatch he added the names of 5 officers and 6 non-commissioned officers and men.

Barrie IMO, condition good very fine/ Very fine condition for group, see pictures for condition. James Robert Barrie born 1867 Glasgow, Scotland. He attested for the Scots Guards aged 26 in 1893, served with the 2nd battalion Scots Guards during the Boer War March 1900 to Aug 1902, settling in South Africa after the war. On the outbreak of the First World War he was commissioned Lieutenant with the 1st (Durban) Light Infantry during the Boer Revolt and German South West African Campaign. He later transferred to the Active Citizen Force for service in their Railway Company. On 12th February 1900 the enemy in great force attacked the positions about Rensburg. On that day the 2nd Battalion Scots Guards lost 2 men killed and 1 officer and 11 men wounded, the 2nd Worcesters losing much more heavily. On the 14th there was again heavy fighting, in which the Wiltshires lost 12 killed and 45 wounded, and over 100 taken prisoners. General Clements had found it necessary to order a retirement from the Rensburg positions on Arundel, in order to cover Naauwpoort Junction. Due notice of the alteration was not sent to two companies on outpost. When they came back to camp it had been occupied by the enemy. Endeavouring to follow the rest of the force, these two companies were surrounded and most of them taken prisoners, after making a good defence. No one could blame the two companies; they suffered because there had been an inexcusable want of care in the collecting of the regiment. Having moved north from Arundel via Colesberg, Fauresmith, etc. The brigade joined the main army at Bloemfontein on 2nd April, and when Lord Roberts moved north in May they occupied the line in his rear. The brigade was ordered to occupy Senekal on 31st May, and this was done. Here Clements remained until the big operations against De Wet and Prinsloo commenced in June (see 2nd Bedfords). In these operations there was much heavy fighting, particularly on 6th and 7th July at Bethlehem, on the 23rd at Slabbert’s Nek, and on the 28th at Slap Krantz (see Royal Irish Regiment). The casualties, however, were not excessive for the great result obtained. Create your brand with Auctiva’s. Attention Sellers – Get Templates Image Hosting, Scheduling at Auctiva.

British 1914-15 Star Medal Trio Awarded To Lieutenant Arthur Morton Goodall, Of The 1st Battalion Durban Light Infantry (South African Infantry). Lot includes 1914-15 Star, British War Medal, Victory Medal, photocopy of his CWGC certificate, service card, pictures & biography. Mr Goodall served with the 1st Bn. Durban Light Infantry (South African Infantry). The Goodall family are intrinsically linked to the “Lever Brothers” company, Arthur being born in “Port Sunlight”. Indeed, he appears on the war memorial for the model village. His father worked for the firm, eventually managing their interests in South Africa, hence the family emigrated there when Arthur was a boy. Arthur would return to the UK to study engineering at Manchester University, where he was known for his contribution to the university sports teams and the Officer Training Corp. He is commemorated on the University of Manchester War Memorial and Hulme Hall Memorial. The two photographs of Arthur date to around this time (showing him in rugby uniform). At the outbreak of war, he and his unit were involved in the invasion of German South-West Africa (now known as Namibia). Mr Goodall was killed in action on the 21/03/1916 during the Action of Soko River, he is buried at Moshi Cemetery in Tanzania. His full entitlement is on offer here. Name and number correctly impressed on all medals. It is recorded that Arthur died as he went to the aid of his badly wounded sergeant, whilst bandaging his wounds Arthur was hit and killed or died shortly after. However, I think the most fitting memorial to him comes from Hulme Hall/Manchester University; Arthur possessed the gift of friendship in a marked degree and was very popular in the Hall and at the University. He was a familiar figure, in cowboy costume, at the shrove Tuesday celebrations and entered into all University activities with enthusiasm. In him the Hall loses one of its stalwarts. It should also be noted, that Arthur’s brother, 2nd Lieutenant Harold Armitage Goodall R. A was killed on the Western Front in March 1918. Much of the above research (and more besides) comes from “Chairs That Stand Empty: The Men Behind the Names on the Hulme Hall First World War Memorial” by A. I thoroughly recommend the book, particularly if interested in this medal group. The 1914-15 Star (Pip) was awarded to those who served in a theatre of war between 5.8.1914 and 31.12.1915, except those who had already qualified for a 1914 Star. The Victory medal (“Wilfred”) follows a design agreed upon at Versailles in 1919. The medal is in lacquered bronze and shows a winged victory holding a palm branch.
