As evidenced by the five clasps on his Queen's South Africa Medal, this leading seaman of the Royal Navy had seen considerable service with the Naval Brigade in South Africa during
the Anglo-Boer War. His rating of leading seaman is indicated by the fouled anchor badge on his arm. Below the badge are two good conduct chevrons. Unfortunately there is no hint to
his identity or the name of the ship on which he served in the photograph.
