|This photograph depicts who I believe to be Sergeant R. H. Green, Army Medical Staff. His unit badge is clearly visible
on his collar. His identity is based upon his unique set of campaign medals - the 1896 Ashanti Star, the Queen's South
Africa Medal (w/3 clasps) and the King's South Africa Medal. A search of the Ashanti Medal roll only names one
member of the Medical Staff who was entitled to this specific combination of medals - Corporal R. H. Green.
The roll states that Green was Mentioned in Despatches twice during the Boer War and three times during World War I.
He was promoted to Warrant Officer and retired a Quarter Master and Major and died in 1948.
The photograph was probably taken on his wedding day. His wife's name has yet to be uncovered.
Note: The above mentioned identity of this soldier has been questioned by a visitor to this website but no additional
information was provided when requested. Until new evidence is in hand he will remain identified as above.
