|A sergeant of the Royal Army Medical Corps with his wife, possibly on their wedding day sometime after the Anglo-Boer War.
A visitor to this website has suggested that this photograph may depict No. 8286 Sergeant R. H. Green of the Army Medical
Corps. Green the 1896 Ashanti Star, the Queen's South Africa Medal with clasps "Cape Colony", "Orange Free State", and
"Transvaal" and the King's South Africa Medal. Green was Mentioned in Despatches twice during the Anglo-Boer War and
three times during World War I. Green was eventually promoted quartermaster and honorary major and died in 1948.
The roll for the Queen's South Africa Medal shows Green having been promoted sergeant major during the Anglo-Boer War but
the man in this photograph appears to hold the rank of sergeant. The photograph clearly post dates the war so this man actually
being Green seems doubtful. Regardless of his true identity, the sergeant of the Royal Army Medical Corps was a veteran of
both the Ashanti War of 1896 and the Anglo-Boer War.
