King’s South Africa Medal Ksa Seaforth Highlanders Killed In Action In Ww1 For Sale
A King’s South Africa Medal correctly impressed to:
6116 CORPL. G. CARSTAIRS, SEAFORTH HIGHRS.
Corporal Greig Carstairs served in the 2nd Battalion Seaforth Highlanders during the Boer War & was also entitled to a Queen’s South Africa Medal with clasps Cape Colony, Paardeberg, Dreifontein, Transvaal & Wittebergen.
His entitlement to the King’s Medal is confirmed on the Medal Roll which also states that he was transferred to the Army Reserve in England on 29th August 1902.
He also later served in WW1 as S/25687, Serjeant, 7th Battalion, Seaforth Highlanders, and was killed in action on the 24th March 1918. He has no known grave and is commemorated on the Pozieres Memorial. He was born & enlisted at Glasgow.
In the Scottish Archive's "Service's Death Returns" he is confirmed as being 40 years of age at the time of his death. His age is not shown on CWGC, but by cross checking from the Scottish Census records it’s not possible for thisto be a different man. The name “Greig Carstairs” is unusual & there were only two men of this name in Scotland during the relevant period. The other one was a 25year old Bank Teller in 1901 so he can effectively be ruled out.
I will provide copies of the QSA & KSA Medal Roll as well as his WW1 Medal Index Card & Scottish Census details to the winning buyer.
The medal is a pleasing VF condition. There are a few small rim bumps but nothing bad.
Please see my other medal sales which may be of interest.
